Like once or twice a week I get a blue screen out of no where saying something about a physical memory dump. I have no idea what this means and need some assistance. Does anyone know if I can fix it or do i have to reinstall?

Memory Dump Files

How to gather information after a memory dump in Windows XP

Gathering Blue Screen Information After Memory Dump

You can disable these by right-clicking on My Computer, selecting Properties and then the Advanced tab. Click on the Settings button in 'Startup and Recovery'. In the bottom pane - under 'Write debugging information' - click on the down arrow and then select 'None'.

But you still need to investigate the information the dumps provide so you can resolve the problem.

I use to get this frequently, best thing to do is to disable the dumping of the memory and to delete the "memory.dmp" file in the C:\windows\ folder. Especially if its eating up hard disk space.

Be careful, often this is the sign of a driver problem or a ram problem. Particularly if it happens regularly.

Have you installed any new hardware lately? Another option is to test your ram, there are a number of dowloadable programs that can check your ram.
