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.

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

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 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...

What is reentrant kernal?

It is somewhat complicated to explain. The basics of it is it is what allows processes through the CPU. If you are getting a kernal. error, they mainly share the memory and can become corrupt when they attempt to run at once, not in an organized manner. Hopefully this helps you out somewhat.. if you have any other questions let me know and I will attempt to break it down in more depth.

A blue screen pops up something about a crash dump

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

A blue screen came up saying something about the memory module!

oh k..
so u mean whenever u start ur computer or whenever u work on it, it shows Blue screen...
This blue screen is called BSOD Error (Blue Screen Of Death)
It occurs due to several reasons but since u specified abt memory, this might be showing you Kernal Memory Dump, i hope..
Dont need to panic, try to start up computer in safe mode & restore it to previous known date at which u didn't had that problem..
It generally occurs after installing some new softwares or drivers that conflicts with the memory module.. so try to restore ur system else try removing ur newly installed software or driver...
Hope this helped u out..

Screen freezes,then a brown looking film comes on

this is a kernal crash, try starting with the left shift key depressed, this does a bunch of "housework" and is safe boot. Have you fitted any memory or anything lately? . You could also give the disc utility on the system disc a go, verify the hard drive and then repair the permissions, It could be a sign the memory or hard drive is failing, a bad sector on the hard drive can be sorted by re instelling the system software

Kernal panic


To reset nvram,
Press "cmd alt O F" at startup
Then enter:
reset_nvram (press enter)
reset_all (press enter)

A kernel panic can come from a lot of things (peripherals, corrupted file, or damaged hard drive or memory). The best is to check in the log file what caused the kernel panic, or to proceed step by step, checking one thing after the other, until the problem is resolved.
