Error messages in XP SP2/3
I've got a computer at work that has been getting a memory error when booting up. No overclocking and the memory has been swapped out for different speed and timing memory. However the error still shows up.
Also, after logging into a user account, the program netsh.exe from c:\windows\system32 also fails.
The original memory error isn't always the same numbers, but it seems to always be a memory error.
Upgrading to SP3 didn't fix the netsh.exe problem, and replacing the file didn't seem to fix it either.
Is there any chance a repair install would work to fix this, or is it likely to be a hardware problem? Also, there doesn't seem to be any other errors or problems stemming from this that I can identify.
I'm not sure I can do a screenshot of the inital error, but I can post the error codes if that would help.

You might want to check and make sure the Vcore as shown in CPU-Z matches the VID of your chip, and if not then manually adjust it in the BIOS accordingly.

It is a Pentium 4 519, on an ASUSTek Goldfish3 motherboard.
The RAM SPD settings specify 1.8V.
The error on boot this time was:
The instruction at "0x65843cd4" referenced memory at "0x0000504c". The memory could not be "read".
