Default BSOD Errors - Non-Executable Command?

I just built my new system (specs below) and got it up and running today. It's blazing fast, the temperatures are acceptable, and no overclocking has been done yet. The RAM is installed in slots 2 and 4 and the boot SATA drive is on SATA1. I only have one data drive hooked up at this point in time, so two hard drives are going.

I am running a legit copy of Windows XP Professional.

During no particular trigger, Windows will give me a BSOD stating that there was an "attempt to execute non-executable memory" and crash the system. One of the memory ranges given was 0x000000FC (0xBA4CFB9C ...).

It doesn't happen on any specific loading of a program, service, or media.

Any idea where I could start?

Oh, also, I have four removable disk icons in My Computer, but I don't have a card reader installed, nor do I have USB flash drives plugged in. Any clue?

Also of note, I have installed all the new drivers for my graphics card and chipset.

I tried the Mpegport.sys file, that doesn't even exist on my system, much less Device Manager.

Still looking, but thanks!

Update: I have disabled DEP for now, which seems to be working. I will run Prime95 to see if it has officially been solved.

What's DEP? Curious in case anyone else runs into the problem.

Data execution prevention - it stops supposed malicious code from being executed in non-executable memory ranges. If a hardware driver is incorrectly installed or is buggy, it will trigger DEP. Most sites recommend disabling it if you have any problems.

Ah, thanks. That's in the BIOS?

In Boot.ini just add the /noexecute=alwaysoff switch to the main OS line. You can disable it through Windows too, I think, but this is the recommended way.
