I'm going to pull one DIMM and reseat at a time to see what happens, but I'm pretty sure this I have a case of bad RAM.

Does this seem like a logical course of action? Is there any software that can test RAM?

Thanks in advance!

MemTest will allow you to create a boot CD that will run a little linux kernel and run various stress tests on your ram, it will also tell you what DIMM is having the problem.

Memtest is a great place to start (www.memtest86.com).  It would also be good if you have some other memory sticks that you could swap out to see if your having the same problem.  

I would also run prime95 on it in stress test mode.  That will let you know if the CPU is giving you problems.
