  1. Hi:You could give the following procedure a spin

    1) check your memory with Memtest
    http://hcidesign.com/memtest/download.html


    2) check your HDD with hard drive manufacturer's diagnostics to check the
    drive.

    3) Run your PC with one Stick of Ram at a Time to make sure there is no bad Ram

    4) the error message specifically identifies one file
    (advapi32.dll) as corrupt. You need to repair that file.
    To repair any corrupt files in Windows, open a command
    prompt window and type the command:



    sfc /scannow



    SFC might call for your Windows installation CD, so have it ready to hand.

    If you still out of luck then you can give the following link a spin:

    Hello Greenfield

    Disabling BIOS memory component did the job.
