Is there a tool similar to Microsoft's Windows Memory Diagnostic tool for 64 bit systems?

We have a 64 bit 4 processor Xeon with 24GB of RAM running Windows 2003 x64. We have been periodically receiving blue screen of death and dump similar to Windows Server 2003 keeps rebooting reason code 0x805000f problem in EE.

The memory dump reveals " Probably caused by : ql2300.sys ( ql2300+29a10 )"

We understand that the QLogic fibre HBA driver has caused this issue.  However, we should throrougly check memory before looking at the drivers, as they have the most recent firmware

My questions:

1) Is there a tool  similar to Microsoft's  Windows Memory Diagnostic tool for 64 bit architecture? Microsoft's only works for x86.

2) What significance does the BIOS verison for this driver have on adressing higher memory?

Thanks you

Below please see memory dump.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
