Default Prime 95 + BSOD issues Win xp Prof sp2

Well i just finished putting my system together...

Error in same spot in prime95 after running it 5 times

Error codes so far

0x00000050
0x0000004E
PFN_List_corrupt

A64 2800+ stock hsf stock settings
Abit nf8 bios 15
Antec sonata + 380w psu
Leadtek 6600gt stock
WD 80gb 8mb cache (800jb)
corshair xms 256x2 pc3200

I get a blue screen while just surfing the web which says : 0x00000050 Page Fault not in page area etc. I tried to google this and put it in microsoft help but the blue screen was really vague it didnt list a specefic file. I had before the 70.xx beta drivers so maybe those were buggy?

I ran memtest over night, then the next night prime95 and they both were error proof. I have the latest whql drivers from nvidia for my video card. Im using nvidia chipset 5.10 which are certified and im not using the shitty nvidia ide drivers that are known to be buggy. My rails on the powersupply are exactly on par with specs so im wondering if its a software issue. Im using windows xp prof sp2.

Hard drive continues to be corrupted, cant install avg anti virus etc, when i open things it says i need to close them and then it exits. Yet i ran a check disk and 0 bytes were in bad sector. Maybe its because i added a 20-24 pin converter to my psu so that it will work with my nf8 motherboard. You can use 20 pints but mine didnt want to snap in.

This is really frustrating and any help would be appreciated. I think my first step will be to change the IDE cable in the event of corruption. Then if i get another BSOD i will change out the ram and run prime etc and hope for the best.

nForce chipsets can be very picky when it comes to memory modules. If you have the memory in dual channel mode (if that's possible), try switching to single channel mode. Alternatively, try with one module at a time.

I am using socket 754 so dual channel is not possible. I am testing one module at a time with prime95 and so far its lasting longer then before with both modules installed. Why cant both modules work at the same time, if both sticks work fine alone then its the board i guess. If i need too ill just sell my 256 x 2 kit and buy a 512stick
