Hi pherny...

Download memtest86, extract the files, double click the exe file to make a floppy, and run it on the machine for at least 1 hour. The longer you run it, the better your chances of catching a bad memory module. (I usually let it run all night.) If you get a failure, you'll need to replace that RAM module.

You might also download Speed Fan to monitor the PSU voltages. A fluctuation of .5 volts either way is enough to cause problems.

Let us know what you find...

Your voltages will be at the lower left of the Speed Fan window.
