  1. this has been going on for about 2 months now, my laptop will just crash and give me a stop error code. and then occasionally when i try to restart the system it tells me that there's no hard drive.
    the last time it happened i wrote down the code it gave.

    0x0000000F4
    (0X00000003, 0X8A796230, 0X8A7963A4,0X805D13B6)

    It also give me the message; BEGINNING DUMP OF PHYSICAL MEMORY.
    even though it never does anything.

    oh and if it helps i'm running windows xp professional, service pack 2
