This error seems to mean different things for different people...it is generally a memory error, but not necessarily a RAM problem.

Start with the easiest issue....do you have any USB devices other than mouse or keyboard? (external drives, memory sticks).

Are you installing them and removing them correctly?

When did the problems begin? Have they always been there? Did you upgrade to sp2 and then they began.
