Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
A small memory dump file records the smallest set of useful information that may help identify why your computer has stopped unexpectedly. This option requires a paging file of at least 2 megabytes (MB) on the boot volume. On computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000 or later, Windows create a new file every time your computer stops unexpectedly. A history of these files is stored in a folder.
This dump file type includes the following information: • The Stop message and its parameters and other data • A list of loaded drivers • The processor context (PRCB) for the processor that stopped • The process information and kernel context (EPROCESS) for the process that stopped • The process information and kernel context (ETHREAD) for the thread that stopped • The Kernel-mode call stack for the thread that stopped The small memory dump file can be useful when hard disk space is limited. However, because of the limited information that is included, errors that were not directly caused by the thread that was running at the time of the problem may not be discovered by an analysis of this file.
If a second problem occurs and if Windows creates a second small memory dump file, Windows preserves the previous file. Windows gives each file a distinct, date-encoded file name. For example, Mini022900-01.dmp is the first memory dump file that was generated on February 29, 2000. Windows keeps a list of all the small memory dump files in the %SystemRoot%\Minidump folder.
Configure the dump type loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To configure startup and recovery options to use the small memory dump file, follow these steps.
Note Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. 2. Double-click System. 3. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery. 4. In the Write debugging information list, click Small memory dump (64k).
To change the folder location for the small memory dump files, type a new path in the Dump File box (or in the Small dump directory box, depending on your version of Windows).
Open the dump file loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To open the dump file after the installation is complete, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK. 2. Change to the Debugging Tools for Windows folder. To do this, type the following at the command prompt, and then press ENTER: cd c:\program files\debugging tools for windows 3. To load the dump file into a debugger, type one of the following commands, and then press ENTER: windbg -y SymbolPath -i ImagePath -z DumpFilePath kd -y SymbolPath -i ImagePath -z DumpFilePath

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.
