Segmentation fault during Slackware setup. Suspect hardware.
Just recently purchased Slackware 10, which installed fine on my old Compaq Armada laptop. Now when trying to install on home built desktop it will spit out the following error during package installation (after partitioning, checking disks, and selecting packages) :
Code: Bad EIP Value.
Segmentation Fault <1> Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address b012fbdc
*pde = 00000000

I have tried swaping in a different hard drive, different CD drives, different RAM sticks, different RAM slots, removed all cards, except for video (I don't have an extra one), and popped the CMOS battery overnight. I've also reseated the video card and sprayed out all the dust bunnies I could find. This desktop has been on the shelf for a while (just moved and didn't get a chance to set it up right away), but prior to that it ran fine for several years.
While trying to install Windows XP I have received Page Fault, Stop 0x00000050 BSOD several times, even though it finally did install.
I'm down to thinking it's either the video card or the CPU/mobo. However, before I flip a coin and run out to buy a new one of these, is there anyone out there with a better understanding of this kind of error code? I'm leaning more to the CPU/mobo being at fault, but I welcome any suggestions. THANKS!
Video Card: 3D Prophet 2MX
Mobo: Asus A7V-133 (Award BIOS v1.04)
CPU: AMD Athlon 850
