The first thing I'd try on that system is memtest86, which is available
on the install CD (boot from it, and type memtest86 at the very first

Best to leave it going overnight.

Memory errors are tricky things -- Xubuntu will have a different kernel
(with different compile options), and that will mean that failing memory
gets used in a different way.

Hope this helps,
