    I was running Rainbow 6 Vegas on windows XP, when abotu 10 minutes in i started getting the blue screen of death and the computer would restart, this happened every time. I first thought just windows compability problem, but then I went to OSX to test a game-> Age of Empires III and after about 10 minutes of play it completly froze. This also happened every time i played. I went to my error logs and found this..please help (Mabbook Pro 2.4 Ghz 2GB ram 15in)

    i'm sure someone more knowledgeble than me will chime in here, but a lot of times, constant kernal panics are the result of bad RAM. does it happen with other programs or just Rainbow?
