Your hard drive probably needs replaced but before you go and purchase anything I would check the cabling.

You will need to power off and unplug our computer. You will want to remove the panel from the computer so you can get access to the inside once inside you will want to make sure that the cable to the hard drive is firmly in place and the other end is firmly connected to *********** board.

If the cable is tight you can try to reboot your computer to see what happens. and rerun your disgnostics if it continues to fail you will need a new hard drive.

    the new hard drive will most likely not come with any cd as this is not needed you should have a restore cd that came with your computer this disc should put windows back in for you without a problem

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.

You might have bad memory, a corrupted registry file, corrupted system files. Try starting up in Safe mode then backup your data. Goto My Computer and right click on the hard drive and select properties. Goto Tools tab and select error checking of hard disk on startup. Might need to reinstall Windows

Physical memory dump


This is not the problem of drivers it is the problem with the memory when one or more programmes try to occupy the same ram space at the same time if you want to get rid of this problem i suggest you to format your pc once and reload the os.

Memory dump


There are essentially two major causes of the physical memory dump screen: Running way to many programs at once, errors in the Windows registry.The first cause can be fixed rather easily. Simply run fewer programs or purchase additional RAM or processor upgrades. Your computer is running past its specified limits. But keep in mind the blue screen of
death should happen very infrequently. If you see the physical memory dump blue screen more often then the problem is errors in the Windows registry.This is a more abit of a harder problem to deal with. The registry is the most important component of your computer. The registry contains settings and information to run all software and hardware on the computers. When there are errors in the registry it disrupts the computers ability to communicate. When the system cannot compute, it freezes up and displays the Windows blue screen.
I found a registry cleaner that is free and works rather well. It is named cCleaner, has been around for some time and did I mention FREE...Download it from thelink below run it should clean up your registry...where good men fear to tread.

Beginning dump of physical memory


This could be pretty complex. The ATAPI.SYS file controls the Hard Drive and CD-Rom Drive. I would recommend reading this MS TechNet article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822051/ The article says that it's not uncommon for the problem to be caused by faulty memory or by problems in the mass storage controller subsystem, which makes sense since atapi.sys (a mass storage controller system file) is noted.
If you have multiple memory cards in the machine, it might not be a bad idea to take one out and try again. If the fails, keep swapping out memory cards until we either solve the problem, or elimite that as a cause.

Dell Dimension 4600 Blue Screen


Usually this blue screen appears due a hardware issue or drivers conflict.

1) Try to boot in safe mode (hit F8 after starting up) and select "Safe mode"

If you don't get access try doing this:

2) Run the OS CD and use the option Recover Console (R)
This will fix the problem.

3) If the problem continues, you will need to install the OS again.
