Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
While this could be a software problem, The most probable culprit is a bad memory chip, you can google "Microsoft memory tester" and download the disk image from microsoft and burn to a cd to test the memory yourself.
I have also seen a lot of dells do this due to faulty capacitors on the motherboard, a quick visual inspection (just open er up and look closely at all the capacitors) should be able to give you an idea if this is the case.
You will see bulging or leaking capacitors if this is tha case, which would require replacing the motherboard in most cases.
You may want to consider bringing the PC in to a local repair shop if you are still unable to diagnose the problem yourself as these kinds of problems can be difficult for the average user to diagnose.
