My vote would be bad ram. I'd run your favorite memtest variant overnight and see what you get.

my gut feeling is the same - RAM, will run the test and let you, I manage the server remotely so will it record the results in event log once the server is back up?

You may also want to run a chkdsk on the drive where you have you paging file, as the disk could be faulty, generating the BSOD when the memory writes (or tries to write) to the pagefile.

Yes, which is a great part of using the built in Windows one,


To find the results of your Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool after the computer restarts, do this:
1) Right-click on COMPUTER in your Vista start menu and choose MANAGE.
2) In the Computer Management screen that pops up, expand the EVENT VIEWER in the left-hand panel by clicking on the little arrow to the left of the words EVENT VIEWER.
3) From this expanded menu, expand WINDOWS LOGS.
4) On this expanded menu, left-click on SYSTEM.
5) Now, the middle panel will be populated with a huge number of events. To find the one you're looking for, click on FIND in the right panel.
6) In the Find window, type "MemoryDiagnostics" (all one word, but without the quotes) and click the FIND NEXT button. (Note: you could just type "memory" and still find what you're looking for.)
7) Now, in the panel below, you'll see two tabs: GENERAL and DETAILS. Click on DETAILS.
8) Now, you'll see data about your test. If the test passed, you'll see the word PASS on about the fifth line down next to COMPLETION TYPE.

it would be nice to have someone who can walk up to it and tell it to run an extended test though, which can be changed by hitting F10 while the test is running.

I don't suppose there is a usb or network backup drive that it could be writing to?

I'd say you have solved it as updating the BIOS will bring the rest of the hardware into line.
