i knoew this was coming, my computer was really acting up lately and i somehow knew that it was going down pretty soon. ok, im going to try to explain what happend as much as i can. (running winxp) first i was in the middle of playing duneon siege and all of the sudden my it sounded like my hard drive was having a hard time with something, it sounded like it was starting up and powering down many times in a row. then, smack! right there in the middle of my game i get the blue screen saying that there is a physical memory dump, but this wasnt the first time i have seen this so i wasnt all that freaked out, but this time i knew it was bad because my computer all of the sudden shut off right after that. so i turned it back on and it did not recognize the hdd being there, this has also happend before so i knew how to fix that. i simply unplugged the hdd and turned on my computer untill it got thru wuth the post screen and it said it could not find a boot device, then i turned it off and plugged the hdd back in and it recognized it again. but when i went to go to start up windows it goes thru the start up screen and righ when its about to get to the desktop the blue screen with the physical memory dump flashes on the screen and it auto resets and goes thru a continuous loop. i dont know what is wrong. im thinking it is either the memory or the hard drive. the hard drive because of the wierd sound it was making when it did the mem dump. and the memory for the "physical memory dump" part. do any of you know what is going on here!? i need help!
