Xbox360 memory dump

Have had my 360 for about two years now with no problems... until now. Just recently my 360 has been 'dumping / forgetting' some of my saved games data. It happened to my saved game profile for Halo 3 and just recently my saved game for Dead Rising. Its weird, my 360 just looses my saved data for games but keeps all my achievments. Also when I want to play Tomb Raider Anniversary a message appears saying some of my Tomb Raider data is corrupted. Please help, many thanks

Physical memory dumping when l start to play gta


providing the actual dump message will greatly increase the chances of a correct diagnostic of the problem. (yes the message actually tells us why it goes to physical mem dump) other than that i'd check the fans and fins for dust buildup (causes overheating)

My computer with windows xp after a while dumps its memory


First off, have you installed any new hardware or software/drivers recently?

Random memory dumps are caused by out-dated or incorrect drivers, or malfunctioning hardware.

In most cases you can reference an error message by going into your event logs using

start, run
type
eventvwr.msc
Click on system or application

Dr Watson is a program in windows xp that is used to diagnose these error messages. Look at this link

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.

How to stop dumping memory to disk errer


Hi rakib_050415

The problem you are having doesn't have anything to do with the motherboard. When Windows dumps out and starts that memory to disk, then you either have a bad hard drive or bad memory that's causing you the problem. Once in a while it can be the CPU, but I'd say 1 out of 20,000. To find out I'm going to send you to two different places to download some software to test both. First to test your memory go HERE. They are all free programs, so pick which one you want and download it, and read the instructions and run it. Then to test your hard drive. After you've finished that test, then go to HERE and again, download whichever one you want and follow the instructions and run the test. It's not going to repair either the memory or hard drive. You will need to go out and replace it. Now if you find that you've run both tests and neither show and problems, then you have something else wrong with your computer software, not hardware. It could be something you just recently downloaded, that has messed up your registry. The list can go on, but for now, try the most probable before you jump into insanity.

Good Luck, and please post back what your results are.

Thanks

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.

Memory dump


Make sure your computer meets the minimum system requirements for running Windows XP if this is an upgrade - I had a computer that technically met the requirements, but boy did it run slow after I upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP. If your hard drive contains no programs, information that you can live without, then you can completely reformat the hard drive and start over from scratch. If it does contain important programs, burn them to CD or DVD - and make sure that your computer can read the files after you are done burning - and then reformat your hard drive.
