Blue Screens...

I've been getting random crashes on the desktop. At first I thought it might be a problem with Exact Audio Copy, but they didn't always happen when (or even after) using it.

I resorted to a full data backup and restore to factory configuration, and still got a crash, indicating a hardware problem.

Opening up the box, I saw a memory chip holder that didn't seem to be quite properly engaged. I reseated the RAM chips a few hours ago and have been reinstalling/recopying stuff ever since; no crashes so far. (I did have a minor scare when a game install gave an error message -- turned out it wanted to open a Word document and I hadn't yet reactivated MS Office).
