Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My laptop crashed over the summer; everytime I turned it on it would bring up the blue screen that says "begining physical memory dump" and a few times after that it would no longer turn on and i lost everything. I got it fixed for free and reinstalled everything, but today the blue screen came up again. I turned the computer off and now, a few hours later, it seems to be working fine, and I have deleted about 1,200 songs off it. However I want to know how to keep the computer from crashing again. From my online research it seems to be a hardware problem?

    I'm assuming that by getting the blue screen of death that you are at least booting into Windows. If the kernal calls for a memory dump at this point it usually relates to a driver conflict or registry error. It seems that some driver is competing for memory space with some other device driver or at least occationally anyway.

    What was your "Free Fix"? If it entailed reinstalling a driver or upgrading one this might be an area to look into further.

    Physical memory is also a possibility. heat affects memory in strange ways.

Blue screen appears & keep restarting


It is possible that the malware is to blame, in which case a computer technician will need to sort it out.

I think it may be a bad memory module or loose memory module connection.

Take care!

Physical memory dump


Hmm... Well a Bluescreen is when your computer crashes, and (as you have found out) preforms a physical memory dump. This can be caused by multiple things. Such as bad drivers, PFN(page frame number) or problems with your memory. When a bluescreen event occurs, the is a technical information which has an error code that can be used to help find the problem. In order to fix this problem, you may have to remove any software, or hardware that you have recently installed. To uninstall software, you may need to boot in safe mode, which is where your computer starts up using the minimal amount of drivers needed, in order to try to prevent the computer from crashing.

My toshiba satellite M55-S135 is showing a blue screen with "physical memory dump complete" & to contact tech support. Basically, wanted to ask if my laptop is crashed...


Hi:
Crashed is a generic term, and the physical memory dump error is a windows based error that could be a bad memory stick, or a corruption in windows. If you have 2 sticks of memory in your laptop, a cheap and easy way to troubleshoot this would be to remove one stick, then the other,to see if one stick removed stops the crash. If it does, then you have solved the problem, and if it doesnt' then you have a corrupt software issue.

Hope you get a cheap fix!

Registry file failure


This sounds like a previously removed piece of sofware, either a peice of a programme spyware, virus or malware, thats still got the start up files registered. Download this programme, it's very good, it's free and has no spyware attached, it will remove all traces of unused registry files and temporary files. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ If you still have problems click Start>Run and type 'msconfig' without quotes. This will bring up a window; click the startup tab and see if there are any unrecognised programmes on start up that you no longer use.
