my pc spec-shuttle sn41g2 tower/motherboard,athlon xp2400 processor,512 corsair ddr 333 mhz,western digital-caviar 80gb 7200rpm hard drive. hi can any one help me with this problem im having with my pc,the pc will start up with no problems and run ok,after a short period(normally while playing a game)the pc will lock,if left the pc will go to a blue screen saying the pc has stopped to save it from being damaged and has started to dump the physical memory(you can watch it dumping the memory on the screen)does anyone know why it does this and how to rectify this problem.my operating system is windows xp home Tony
I think this might also occur when a strange cocktail of programs are running. If one programs hangs then the cocktail may result in the BSOD. For exmaple, running something like kazaa at the same time as an online gaming may give you a BSOD if kazaa hangs. On their own they might be OK. Just a thought.
the pc started doing the dumps(no jokes)before i installed this game,it first dumped one day while using kazza so i removed kazza thinking that was where the problem was originating from,if thats any help
