Hi,

I have a Windows 2003 server.  Yesterday I upgraded the RAM from 1Gb to 3Gb.  All went ok and the server is now running alot faster due to the increased memory, however since the upgrade the server has rebooted itself 4 times in approximately 24 hours.  Below are the error messages in the event log.  Obviously this has something to do with the new memory, but not sure if it is just faulty memory or another related problem.
