HI all,

I get Memory Dump problem / error in WinXP very frequently...

Earlier I had formatted my C: drive & installed WinXP a couple of times & it got suppressed for a couple of weeks ...

Now when i format my c: drive & try to install XP , it shows this dump error .

Please let me know as to what the problem could be ...or what should i do to rectify this.....

Is it a hardware problem or software problem ?

Also my vendor is not much arare about this error..

If anyone of u can throw some light on this , i can possibly ask my vendor to check for that [hardware or software]....

Thanks in advance.

I think it very likely that there is a hardware problem. XP has been quite stable for me - not once have I seen the blue screen of death, although I have gotten a "white screen of confusion" a couple of times.
If this was my problem I would run every memory checker and disk checker I could get my hands on, starting with the built in disk checker.

Thanks William for ur reply...

I too have checked my disk using the disk cleaner provided by Windows , but that just fixes broken files....

Is this due to problems in my RAM or Motherboard or processor or hard disk ?

How do i check whether the hardware is functioning properly.?

Try memtest86 for memory checking for starters.
