Some thoughts....

The majority of the times I've run into that error, it involved laptops, hibernation and a large amount of RAM.
In those cases, the hotfix from Microsoft fixed it:

Since it's happening with you at boot, your issue may be something else.
How much free space do you have remaining on your primary hard drive?
If you have 2GBs of RAM or more and very little free space, try booting to Safe Mode and freeing up some room on the drive.

Have you tried to 'Boot To Last Known Good Configuration' at the boot menu (get there by hitting F8 repeatedly during boot up.

Were any changes made on the system prior to when this started happening?

There is a possibility the system is infected with a virus known as the Sasser Worm. Let's hope not. But, just in case, here's where you can find out how to remove it:

To the Sassier Worm.

Boot into Safe Mode not Safe Mode With Networking and run a Up to Date AV Scan of the system.

To get into Safe Mode after the Post Screen or Makers Logo Disappears press and hold down the F8 Key till either the Internal Speaker in the computer starts going nuts or you get the White on Black Screen and then using the arrow keys highlight Safe Mode and press Enter.
