Kernal Memory dump, why does this continue occurring?
For no apparent reason my pc will cease working and freeze and the kernal memory dump message follows. Why does this occur and what can I do to prevent this from happening. I would just like to be able to use my computer without it shutting down then having to go through launch repair. I changed the ram and the motherboard.

Re: Kernal Memory dump, why does this continue occurring?
This is a software problem. In order to get a better answer, you really should supply at least the following information: make and model of computer and operating system. For some general fixes, these are what I suggest. 1. Run the system file checker: Start>run, type in sfc /scannow<enter> You will need the OS disk in the drive for this.
2. Run Windows Update.
3.Update all your drivers, especially your video driver. If you're not sure what is in your system, get the free Belarc Advisor at http://www.belarc.com
4. Check the vendor's sites for updates to all installed applications.

Log into safe mode and go to the Control panal. then go to "administrator tools" then go to "Event Viewer" then on the left hand side look for the menu "Application" and to the right look for Red X and read what is says. go vist www.eventid.net and type in the code.
i know you know this but something is wrong with your OS. you can try repair install or format reload. also any devices or solfwware could be confiliting with it. ex. new printer, digital cam....etc...

I assume 'powering up' as the reboot of your OS (Windows) while your are working. The reason could either be found out from 'system events' or configuring 'complete memory dump'. Go to my computer properties and click on advanced tab. You'll find the option to set the 'memory dump'. Install the memory dump analysis tool from MS and analyse the dum when it goes down next time. It will capture which driver is causing the issue.

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. Here are some useful websites (sorry, my hyperlink icon isn't working):
sounds liek you installed some hardware the pc did not like. plossibly memory that is not supported or video card that is not supported (some thing that a core item to the pc operation).
If this is not the case, one of these core items is faulty it sounds like. Another possibility might be some corrupted software like the OK throwing up kernal errors (blue screens). I would try to boot in safe mode to see if it happens there. If so, you will either have a hardware issue or OS one.. try the repair installation to see if it helps any. after that is looks like some hardware swapping.. hope that helps
you have 4 memory connectors. the maximum memory the computer supports is 4 GB. it is recomended that you install in pairs, for some reasons, but i have installed and i have seen it doesnot matter at all. you can go ahead and install the memory for whatever size on the computer. make sure the bus speed should be either 400 or 533 MHZ. and yoou never explained the error message. when you upgrade the ram you will get a message the system memory has changed press f1 to continue or f2 for setup just press f1. if the error message is in windows after you click on your name it has nothing to do with your memory. if its before that. than try to reseat the memory. installing memory in non pairs doesnot cause any problem most of the time. explain the error message only than i can guide you furthur.
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.
hi daget200; can you post the exact error message? its located at the top few lines so that we will know whats causing it. have you inserted a new hardware recently? when does the error occur? intermittent? does it happen when you are playing games or something? pls expound. thanks
How much vurtual memory has been alocated in your system and or increase the physical memory. But unfortunatly you will have to reinstall.
Roxio 9 that is shipped with many of the newer HP photo printers have the same issue.
How much memory do you have installed? Graphics require a lot of memory (ram) to operate correctly. By the time you run the OS, support software, and all the other things on your system, it takes up memory space.
Check that first. Even some graphics cards can add memory to them, check that too. My advice is you can't have enough memory in today's computers.
Then check all you settings for optimal performance. If you change "one" setting, run your system before you change another setting. That way you'll know what worked.
