If there is not enough physical memory Windows will use swap file to
store the data, system will slow down, but it won't crash. If you
suspect that the memory has errors you can check it using http://www.memtest.org/
or build in Windows Vista memory check tool.
Since you did not have this problem with XP I think you have software
Before upgrading form XP to Vista have you used Vista Upgrade Advisor?
To do list
- Check compatibility of your software with Vista especially antivirus
- Update your device drivers
- chipset, graphics, sound, etc.
