You do not have to change anything in youre hardware, if you have reapplied SP6a resently than you should be checking for driver updates, First of all I would check the blue dump screen errors on technet and then event-log errors on technet.
I haven?t heard or read anything about the intel 810 chipset that nt 4 hates so much that you would have to change to ac "powerful server motherboard".........

I agree with Time. Don't throw hardware at this problem; he has given good advice.

The day I meet a hardware vendor who doesn't say you need better hardware is the day when Micro$oft tells you you don't need to upgrade to their new OS. It's people selling you what they sell. This is definitely a setting problem in NT4. Check the blue screens out first! Good advice from the above.
