In my experience it's more what it may not be... =)
I'm not saying that it's multiple things, I'm sure it's probably one thing.
I've seen it with bad memory. I also had a fun experience with the
same error when I had shorted pins on a Creator card. I'd recommend
stripping out the memory to a minimum configuration, and then try
perhaps removing the video card....
