Usually these types of errors are hardware related... Microsoft appears to be useless with this specific error ;) You might want to try these following steps (compliments of http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php):

1 Examine the “System” and “Application” logs in Event Viewer for other recent errors that might give further clues. To do this, launch EventVwr.msc from a Run box; or open “Administrative Tools” in the Control Panel then launch Event Viewer.
2 If you’ve recently added new hardware, remove it and retest.
3 Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the manufacturer.
4 Make sure device drivers and system BIOS are up-to-date.
5 However, if you’ve installed new drivers just before the problem appeared, try rolling them back to the older ones.
6 Open the box and make sure all hardware is correctly installed, well seated, and solidly connected.
7 Confirm that all of your hardware is on the Hardware Compatibility List. If some of it isn’t, then pay particular attention to the non-HCL hardware in your troubleshooting.
8 Check for viruses.
9 Investigate recently added software.
10 Examine (and try disabling) BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
