I got in one Dell box Otiplex GX620 with 4 gbs Ram and 2 hard disk ESX 4.1 and suddenly I start experiencing crashes (purple screen), sometimes 3 seconds after starting the boot up process, and others when the system already up but I am connecting to any of the VMs.
It is always coming with some "PCPU0 6096/console" between other error lines.
Anybody got a similar old system and is having a similar issue ? or maybe anybody knows how to troubleshoot this?
Thanks very much
Purple screen errors are generally hardware related. Use any diagnostic disk you may have. Run memtest.

I think it might be a memory issue yes.
I got some issues 2 months ago, but after re-inserting all the memory modules all started working again and it passed the memory test.
But maybe the issue got back what it is a bit concerning.
