Sometimes my computer will lock and go to a blue srceen that says problem with computer and performing physical dump. This can happen about 6 times in one day and then go for weeks without this happening. Last time I waited too long before switching computer off and lost all my bookmarks that I was viewing at the time this happened. Any idea what this problem is. Thank you.

Re: Shut down - performing physical dump
Blue screen is most of the time a hardware issue.
Seems like either hard drive or memory is faulty. More like your hard drive though.
Try to get it tested at a repair shop before it totally fails. Test the memory first to verify it's ok. If it's ok, then it could be your hard drive. You might or might not need a new hard drive but at this stage, if you get a new one you might be able to copy the data off this failing drive. If you wait longer, the problem is only getting worse and it could lead to total data loss.

once your computer take an BOD or blue screen of *****. it is an indicator that one of you perepherals was damage. in that case you only have to option the memory cards or the HDD. if some point you dont experience a hard time in booting it is not the HDD. maybe your memory cards was in defective state. sometimes good sometimes bad. try to chkdsk first or scan your HDD for posible bad cluster. and make a test also in your memory using some stress memory tester
A bluescreen error is rarely a good sign, but sometimes it's fixable. Have you tried plugging the webcam into a different USB port? Also have you tried unplugging some unnecessary USB devices and then using the webcam? You may be draining too much power from the PSU with USB devices and the PC shuts down to prevent damage. Have you been able to test on a different computer to see if the problems happens there as well?
The first cause can be fixed rather easily. Simply run fewer programs or buy additional RAM or processor upgrades. Your computer is running past its specified limits. But remember that in this case the blue screen of death should happen extremely infrequently. If you see the physical memory dump blue screen much more often then the issue is clearly...!..

The Dr. Watson debugger program logs all information related to failed processes to the Drwtsn32.log file. In addition to this, the debugger program can be configured to create memory dump files related to the failed processes. You can refer these dump files to analyze the reason behind a process failure. Perform the following steps to configure Dr. Watson as the default debugger program to record user-mode program errors:
Open Start menu, select Run, type Drwtsn32.exe -I and then press Enter. This command sets Dr. Watson as the default debugger.
Next, run the Drwtsn32.exe command.
In the Dr. Watson for Windows dialog box, select the following check boxes:
Append to Existing Log File
Create Crash Dump File
Now, when your computer restarts after the STOP 0xC000021A error is generated, run the Dr. Watson command.
Here, view the paths to the Dr. Watson and User.dmp logs.
Open Windows Explorer, navigate to the log files and then open them.
Here, check the cause behind the STOP 0xC000021A error.

As with any blue screen, this is an operating system error in which a driver or program has overstepped it's boundries by writing into an unauthorized section of the memroy, therefore causing the memory dump. You will need to run a system repiar or reload with your recovery disc or operating system disc in order to cure the problem. Start with the repair, if the rogue still persists, then you will need to wipe the hard drive and reload the operating system.
