  1. Ive had this computer for 6 months. About 3 weeks ago ,it started freezing up and/or crashing in WOW ; all other programs were fine.
    After a few attempts it would crash to a blue sceen with the following message: "A wiat operation,attach process or yield was attempted from DPC routine......beginning dump of physical memory.....physical memory dumped.."
    Ive upgraded video,sound and motherboard drivers,reinstalled the game, called tech support....
    I decided to go ahead and reformat and reinstall Windows; however, whenever i try it goes through loading the initial setup and locks up.After a few tries i will get the blue screen with same message and have to cut off the computer for 5 minutes.
    The system is the following:ATI Radeon x1950, Corsair DDR800 memory 2 sticks of 1gb memory, soundblaster X-Fi, WD Raptor harddrive,AMD Dual core FX-62 and ASUSMSN-SLI Deluxe MB.
    ANy Ideas ?????? Derreke

    check your RAM with memtest 86+ and also your PSU.

    You may find this hard to believe, but I have fixed many PC's with "Physical Memory Dump" errors by replacing the Hard Drive. You might give this a shot.
