This contains a number of solutions that have worked for various people.
One of the favourite causes seems to be outdated mouse software!.

A lot of the time this message is down to bad hardware drivers question is which one ? . Strip the machine to bare minimum then build it back up ,also try just one stick of memory or swap memory slots/take out and put back in to make sure contacts are clean . After all this lot I would look at the power supply (ie is it a cheap psu as most problems can come from the power supply but look like other symptoms ie crashing ,resets etc) , I learnt this a long time ago and now only use decent psu's in my systems .

Microsoft fault analyser always says it's drivers but it can occur if the memory is being pushed too hard (overclocked too far or too tight timings).

Could it be this?

I had this problem with an asus and am racking my brains to remember which it was. Either a faulty connection with the "A" drive, or the front connectors not in the correct pins.
I don't know if this is a help
