Here's the latest:
I tested my memory in another computer and ran memtest and it did not report any errors. So I am confident the RAM is not an issue.
I swapped out the power supply from another computer and the results are the same. So I am confident the PSU is not an issue.
That leaves me with a) Video Card memory, b) motherboard.
I dont' have access to another video card at the moment. Is there a specific software that will test the video card memory?
I removed the IDE hard drive from my computer and made it a slave on the other computer. When booting the other computer, it says that the drive needs to be checked for consistency. And chkdsk reports a ton of errors. So that confirms there is an issue with the IDE hardrive. However, with that drive out of the equation in my computer, memtest still reports failure. I can assume that whatever is causing the issue on my computer has damaged the hard drive (possibly caused by rebooting several times). The root cause is still unknown.
Any other suggestions?
