HP Notebook PCs - "System Has Recovered from a Serious Error" Serious Error Message Appears During Startup

Issue:
If Windows XP has needed to restart because of a "serious" error, the Windows Error Reporting tool will prompt for the problem to be reported to Microsoft by presenting the “System has recovered from a serious error” message during the startup/boot process. Windows may continue to display this message and prompt for this information after every restart, even if no other errors occurred following the original, serious error.
Solution
Recreating the page file will resolve this issue.
  1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties..
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. On the Advanced tab, in the Performance section, click Settings.
  4. In the Virtual Memory section, click Change.
  5. For Paging file size for selected drive, click No Paging File, and then click Set.
  6. Click Yes after the following warning appears:
    If the paging file on volume X: has an initial size of less than xx megabytes, then the system may not be able to create a debugging information file if a STOP error occurs. Continue anyway?
    (X is the drive letter and xx is the amount of RAM installed on your computer minus 1 megabyte.)
  7. Click System Managed Size.
  8. Click OK four times to return to the Windows Desktop Screen and then restart.
Cause
This problem occurs after a memory dump file (error log file) is written by Windows XP. Because the memory dump file flag not reset in Windows XP the memory dump file will contiue to be written every time Windows is restarted.
