Did the system come with 6GB of memory, and you just recently added another 10GB? If so, does your motherboard support that much memory? And if not, try a BIOS update.

I have never seen that myself to tell you the truth. Does it offer any "remedies"? Are all your drivers up to date?

Have you tried running an sfc/scannow?

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Are all you drivers installed and up to date?
