Err.. I don't think so. I either thought it up or seen it somewhere else.

If you had NT4 you would probably get ECC memory errors. We have had the 
same situation on a PE2450.

If replacing the memory does not help the mainboard is the next thing to 
exchange. The memtest86 is very conclusive since it tests more rigorous 
then the Dell tool.

Convincing the techs is always challenging but they do a lot better then 
desktop helpline.


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
