Microsofts advice for this error

This behavior can occur when any of the following conditions exist:

• There are incorrect basic input/output system (BIOS) settings for a built-in peripheral device on your motherboard (for example, cache settings, CPU timing, hard disks, and so on).

• Your computer has bad or mismatched random access memory (RAM) or cache (for example, if you are using EDO and non-EDO RAM, or you are using different RAM speeds).

• The motherboard in your computer is not working properly.

My best guess of the three - faulty RAM. If you have two modules, try with each on its own.

Also try setting the BIOS to "Fail-Safe Deault" settings.
