    I use to have RAM corruption problem gone unoticed by memtest86-1.2,
    and it was right after adding two 16MB SIMM modules. (32->64). Be aware of
    not mixing SIMM's of different brend/fab date, just this simple fact can
    cause big problems on lousy (read PC-AT design) non-ECC hardware. If you
    put some money with a PPro, better go for ECC.
    Also try to slow down timings on your chipset bios setting..

    Hope this helps.
