9 times out of ten its going to be a hardware glitch.


If your memory is flaky, no other test is going to make sense anyway. So its a good place to start testing.


memtest86 is truly superb. It is GPL'ed, so get it down now, before bad things happen, and install it in your lilo setup.Or have a floppy with it on.

    Thank you, that's a good tip. And I concur - most failures I've had were hardware glitches.
