i am getting a general protection fault error in module KRNL.386 at 0001:2CC3 when i try to open astrow a program on the server

since last week after flashing the BIOS from A03 to A17 and having problems i had to flash it back to A03 but since then the server is very slow and after rebooting last night it started a memory dump and then continued into windows
