I would turn the machine off, and reset the memory, it doenst need to happen on startup, just when it hits a bad section of memory, or hard drive etc. Like I said read the article, try the things it advises (within reason) and see what happens from that.

I had a chronic similar issue and uninstalled the Realtek Sound Driver. Voila…problem solved.

Do you have the same issue if you follow the OP’s steps to reproduce it?

Yes
