Disable level 1 and 2 cache before install XP

  NAVI 23:58 05 Nov 2005

Have had major problems with my xp machine having blue screen crashes ( doing memory dumps )
with the most common message being "PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGE AREA" decided to reformat and reinstall from CD after the machine spent 2 days at a repairer who could not find any fault or have a crash (sods law) the next blue screen message said to disable the cache in the bios which I have both level 1 and 2 it is now copying instalation files which has so far taken an hour to reach 35% but on another post I read it should only take about 5 mins
Can anyone please explain whats wrong ?

I think you have a faulty Memory stick

Thanks for all the advice, have been a great help will now get a new ram module and keep my fingers crossed

New ram module threw up the same faults with memtest I then had a vague notion about over heating thinking it only happened to overclockers, the bios when checked after a crash gave a reading of 68 degrees C which a search on Google proved to be excessive I fitted a new CPU fan and heatsink which brought the Temp down to 55 degrees Result memtest returned no errors and every thing started to work as it should
