Kernel Panic / System wont boot


I have had a FC3 box running quite nice for some time. I changed motherboards and processor to a faster, but the same chipset. I booted up and everything worked fine. I left the office friday and came back today and it had some kernel panic errors. I though no big deal, it must to had something with domino server. So I was going to boot knoppix but then it had errors. So I tried to sick in my FC3 disc and it failed b/c of kernel errors. I do not see what would be causing this. It has something to do with a spin lock / module not syncing but that about it.

The computer is a 1 gig celeron,256m,20 gig, Just the basics. I went from a 700mhz to the 1 gig and the motherboard is just a newer revision. I am not sure what to do. I need to get this back up, but it wont boot off anything.

Turns out I ran the memtest86 memory test from the fedora cd and it was spitting out memory errors. I removed a stick and now it is working fine. Does memory just go out. This has been working fine for quite some time.

Is the FSB speed of your new motherboard faster than your memory can handle?

Bad contact? It happens now and then... It used to happen a lot more with the old 30 and 72 pin modules...
