Could be you have an intermittent connection on your RAM module, which shows up when the machine is fully warmed up. Try removing your RAM module, cleaning its contacts with a clean pencil eraser, then reinserting it securely. Might work !

Its not the ram its the page file

Right click My Computer>Properties>Advanced Tab>settings (on the Performance and visual button)>Advanced Tab and click on change. Now ensure the System managed button is set and click on set

Now click ok and restart
