Alternatively you might have a faulty RAM stick in your PC--this can cause weird errors in checksums and file comparisons.

actually, pjknibbs has a point, too.

try configuring your bios to test your memory at startup.

or go to downloads.com and do a search for memory tester. they have some free/shareware stuff there that might help you.

or finally, you can swap it out for memory that you know is good.
