It will constantly doin a physical dump of memory

Physical memmory dump( blue death) as it is called happens due to various reasons, which are related to harrdware failure or overloading of hardware. it can happen if the ram, cpu or the harddrive have some problem in connectgionn with the motherboard- try cleaning the sockets of the RAM and trying agin. the blue scrreens means windows went through a critical error<which is hardware related>. if it happens some times its nothing to worry about but if it happens often then you need to get your hardware checked by soem professional as it be corrupted somehow.
