    Read this first and let us know what steps you took. Your particular error can be caused by both hardware and software issues, particulary RAM, but other reasons can exist as well.

    i have taken the system apart and cleaned out all the ram slots and switched them arround, however it is ahrd to tell by trial and error what works and what does not because this error does not appear on every system startup. its totally random while using my pc and will just all of the sudden sometimes (1-2 times a day) restart. i have also checked my ststem for overheating as well with several motherboard manager temp regulators etc.

    You do have signs of a RAM problem. You can try running Memtest, or you can try running with only one stick of RAM at a time.
