Physical Memory Dump

Posted: 11-17-2003, 02:43 PM
I get this blue screen with bunch of text and saying it
did a physical memory dump. What can be causing this, i
think since it said pysical memory it might be hardware
problem, beign my RAM, i have 2x 256mb DDR (PC2700)
sticks of memory, not the good brand (knigmax), but a
cheaper brand called Nanyo i think. Could that be causing
it, or maybe the graphics card. Or is it software
problem ?

Any information would be helpful
Thank You

The memory dump is a default setting in Windows XP for "System
Failure" class errors.

There is no automatic relationship between this and the reliability of
your RAM, although a RAM defect can produce this behavious as can
thousands (at least) of other problems.

The memory dump is produced because it can be useful (to a Systems
Programmer or Technical Support specialist) for identifying the exact
status of the computer at the time of the error.

However the most important information for resolving this problem is
that "blue screen with bunch of text". That information, include all
of the codes and parameters, is a direct clue as to what is happening.

Next time the error happens please copy the complete text of the blue
screen error message, including every parameter value, and post that
information back here *exactly* as it appears on the screen. Also
please include some basic information about your computer hardware and
especially about exactly what you were doing when the error happened -
which application program you were using and which specific task or
function within that application triggered the error condition.

Please see http://dts-l.org/goodpost.htm for additonal advice as to
what information should be included when you requesting assistance
from a technical support newsgroup.

Good luck
