    it could either be:

    scratched / faulty cd
    faulty ram
    faulty cd-rom
    faulty motherboard (faulty i/o ide controller)

    i would try cleaning the cd, then use memtest86 to test your ram, then if you get no problems with your ram, you could try borrowing someone's cd to try, then you could try a different cd-rom...

    if none of that fixes it... then i don't know what. but i suspect it'll be one of the top three.

    suspected that (as it's generic ebuyer stuff) - i've read a few of the reviews of some of the generic ebuyer ram, and quite a few are not good reviews. www.crucial.com/uk are very good prices
