This indicates that the memory management Page File Number list is corrupted. Can be caused by corrupt physical RAM, or by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists.
The first thing to try is to reseat each of your memory sticks and see if that fixes the problem. Maybe stick in your computer just lose contact from vibration or crapped out for good. This is usually the case. So, if reseating doesn't work get a memchecker and put it on a bootable floppy or CD and use it. Better yet, if you've upgraded your memory and still have your old sticks (or have access to some that you know are correct for your PC), replace them and see if that corrects the problem. None of this is especially difficult or time-consuming. If this doesn't pan out then you can move to the less probable scenarios like CPU overheating, power supply issues, BIOS-upgrades etc.

I have come across this error a couple of times and it has always turned out to be because of a faulty memory (RAM) module.
If you are comfortable enough poking around the insides of a computer, then have a look for the RAM module(s).
If there is more than one RAM module present, then what I suggest is to take out all but one of the modules, then boot the machine up and if it works fine you know that module(s) that have been removed are causing you the issue.
Do this for each module to confirm. Also, try each module in all available RAM slots, as it could be the slot itself that is faulty.

Follow these steps to run with 1 stick of RAM.
- You open up the side of the case.
- On the Motherboard (The big board in the middle if you open it) you can see some sticks stand up (towards you).
- Take them all out.
- Put 1 RAM stick in the first slot (all the way to the left = nr. 1)
- Reboot the PC and see if it happens again.

Might this illustration can help how to remove and install Single Inline Memory.
