WinXP Blue Screen of Death: A memory problem

    For your information: We recently installed WinXP on our new 80 gig Western
    Digital HD for our Compaq Presario 5245 that we bought new a few years ago:
    AMD-K6-2, 400 MHz, originally 96 memory, now 256 memory.

    We started having all types of problems with WindowsXP BSOD stop error
    messages.

    We traced the stop error problem to a memory problem. We took out all 3
    sticks of memory, reseated them, and now we have no more stop error problems.

    Maybe the information above can help someone else who is having trouble
    with WinXP stop errors.
