  1. Hi guys, you will find my mini dump file attached. I dont understand it but I hope some of you can.

    Kind Regards.

    Okay, i have just taken a closer look and it seem that;
    ntkrnlpa.exe is causing the error.

    I done some searching and some people say its due to faulty RAM or faulty PSU.

    Is this true?

    It wouldn't hurt to run MemTest 86+ which is a great free utility to test your RAM. This test will take time. I suggest starting it before you go to bed and leave it run while your sleep. The next morning check the results. A minimum of ten passes is good. Though it it is not a perfect it is nevetheless excellent. Google and you will find it.

    Okay do you mean leave it go through ten times, because it goes up to #7 then restarts.

    I also done dell's own memory test.

    All pass so far.

    if you have errors with memtest, then your ram is no good. You do not need to run it more than 7 passes.

    I left it on, now just returned home; 11 passes.

    Any other suggestions?
