I am getting a blue screen with a physical memory dump on a regular basis.

The message says:


and further down, this code:

*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0xDDDDDDDD, 0x00000002, 0x00000008, 0xDDDDDDDD)

My computer won't run a defrag, won't run a scan disk, won't run the antivirus, and won't run the online antivirus. I have deleted my spyware program, YIM, AOL messenger. I do have AVG antivirus on here.

Any ideas on what is wrong and what I can do to fix it???

Hi Tparks, and welcome to BleepingComputers,

What is the capacity of your hard drive, and how much free space do you have?

There is an article on memory dump that you might wish to read, it can be found here.

Here's some things you can try:

1. Check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). Look for any "!", "?" or "X" symbols.

2. Test your memory with Memtest86.

3. Reset your pagefile. Start > Run > type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Performance Settings button
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Virtual Memory Change button
Write down all of the settings so that you can restore them later.
Click on each volume (drive) and then click "No paging file" for each one.
Then click on OK to exit the dialogs
Then reboot - it'll be gone then.

To restore it - go back in and re-enter the settings that you removed.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
