A flakey power supply and flakey memory are your two most hardware prone
problems, as well as maybe a dead fan on something that might get hot.

Also, rerun lucifer/memtest86/etc under DOS to see if the 'cleaner/simpler'
OS helps avoid any software problems.

The quickest and most pain free first step might be to go into the BIOS and
reduce any optimization things to uber safe settings and rerun your tests.
I've had some of the 'features' in BIOS things cause problems in burn in
programs before.
