Sounds like dodgy RAM or another hardware problem to me.

A bit of a strangity here. I've got a laptop here (AST 4/25SL blah blah

came with the distribution (some corruption of slackware) it reported
that I had 2100K (or so) ram. I then rebooted, with the kernel parameter
MEM=4M, and free reported that I had about 1900K (weird). Then I made a
kernel specifically for the machine (2.0.35, as was the previous one).
Now it's saying that I've got 2732K. I can imagine that this would be
quite a difficult one to call, but any suggestions?
