STOP 0x3F error

Dell / INSPIRION

Specs: Windows XP, 2Gb
I am getting the BSOD 0x3F error.
I ran a hard drive scan - fine.
I tested memory with memtest on 1 pass - fine.
The error doesn't list out of PTES so it can't be that.
What else could it be?
I replaced the memory recently to upgrade to 2x1Gb sticks. I replaced 1 of the memory sticks as I thought it was faulty but no change.
Sometimes I get NDFS.SYS BSOD messages (NOT NTFS).

Any ideas?

There's no way I can identify if it is a driver as I have no way of knowing what drivers have been installed in the last few months as I have been installing and uninstalling various bits of software.

At what point do you get the Blue Screen? Can you boot to Safe Mode? Have you tried a Windows Repair?

I can boot fine.
The error message comes up at random times with different programs running but always when processing high CPU or high Mem stuff like audio processing or programs requiring constant internet feeds.

The next time you get a blue screen, write down the code numbers and post them here or do a Google search. You can also go to Event Viewer to learn more about the error message, or use a program like Windebug.
Run a spyware and antivirus scan in safe mode as was suggested in your other post.

I googled it, the only thing that comes up is a NO MORE PTES error, which I have looked at and fixed.
Still happens...
