I backup what Mark says.
a) attach a console to the machine, either a serial line or a
b) run memtest on it, followed by CPUburn or some other
compute-intensive task for a day or two
c) ask your vendor for support
You mention a BIOS upgrade - get through to technical support for your
motherboard manufacturer, and get a clear statement of exactly what the
BIOS upgrade does. Have memory timings or something changed - and check
thet your memory is supported on that motherboard.
