Blue screen of death

  JACC 14:29 22 Sep 2004

I've just had the blue screen of death appear ,i was just listening to music through the pc when it stopped altogether . I panicked a bit and never read the screen thoroughly but i remember something about a memory dump , what is this and how do i fix it please . It also said something like "if this is the first time you have seen this screen restart your computer " it rebooted ok and is now working fine .Defragged,ran antivirus nothing showed up .WXP pro ,no XP2 yet .

Next time it happens, write down the STOP error message and number (say x0000007b) and have a look here for the message number click here and here click here

I had this problem last week, as i've come across it on various machines in the past I ran memtest click here and it showed a faulty memory chip, replaced it, problem dissapeared.
