Hi All,
   My 2003 server system got rebooted by itself. I check the log and saw this error message " The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x0000007f (0x00000008, 0x80042000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP."
   The hosting company explained that it cause by wrong setting of virtual memory. The configuration of virtual memory on my system is 1 GB on drive C: but at that moment I have only 400 MB disk space left on that drive. Ths hosting company said when the virtual memory is used up, the server will reboot. .....Is it true?
    Later on I free up the space on drive C and now I have 1.9 GB on C: and I changed the virtual memory settings on drive C to 512 MB and create another virtual memory file on drive D: at 1512 - 2024 MB. (drive D has 7 GB space) It should solve the virtuala memory problem. But still the system failure and reboot still occur after I changed the virtual memory setting. What else I should check? Please help?

Test the RAM

If you can swap out the RAM with known good modules for testing first if you can't do that then test the machine with one RAM module at a time until you tested every module. Other wise run the the following RAM testers.
--------------------------------------------

NOTE IF THIS DOESN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE RAM THIS DOESN'T MEAN THE RAM IS GOOD you would need to swap out the RAM with known good modules for testing. However if it does find something wrong then chances are the RAM is bad.

I had the same problem and tried all of the above.
After a long search I found a solution.
I had AVG free anti-v and an other internet security pack.
By removing the avg, the problem was solved.
