Hi there again ppl,

Today I was on a website & all of a sudden a blue screen appeared stating: Beginning dump of Physical Memory. I restarted my pc and everything seemed to be fine for a while but after about 15-30 mins the same blue screen appeared. I restarted again & checked in control panel for any funny pregrams & running a spyware check..both seemed fine to me, but again the blue screen appeared.

On windows starting up this time the display had changed from the normal blue taskbar to a gray one & Microsoft spyware kept asking for prompts to open all the programs that normally open on startup. I quickly shutdown.

This time on restarting the taskbar was back to the normal blue & I removed a couple of programs that I don't need & restarted. So far the blue screen hasn't appeared (touch wood) but any ideas as to what happened & how I can correct it if this blue screen comes up again?

Thanks alot

Your system crashed due to some error generated........if it doesnt happen again you should be fine.

Have you recently installed some new software or hardware? Or have you recently edited the registry or something like that.

If it does happen again, i would look into reformatting................chances of ever regaining full system composure after multiple crashes is unlikely.

Well it has happened again.....I haven't installed any new software/hardware although this time when I restarted I was led to the Windows Installer for an ethernet connection which I don't know where it came from!

I don't know if it is the same but I just finished an 8 day ordeal with a blue screen problem. It happened once, then it was ok for about a week. Then it kept happening. I spent 6 days stumbling along with Dell Tech Support trying everything including reformating twice.

When I tried to reinstall windows it couldn't install .dll files so on the 6th day they ran diagnostics on the memory and found that I had a bad module. After 8 days I got the new ram installed and everything worked fine.
