I need help. Memory Dump in Windows 2000 pro

By philsla ยท 5 replies
Sep 10, 2005
  1. I hope someone can help. I have 2 computers of friends that are doing the same thing, a memory dump on boot up. I will stick to one for now.

    The computer has 2 hard drives. The old 4gb and a newer 60gb. Installed the new HD well over a year ago and all was fine till recently. It belongs to an elderly couple so they are not much help.

    Sometimes, I can make it to the desktop and then the dump, other times, not that far in the boot process. As I watch the task bar at the bottom, I see things starting to load and when I see the Kodak Easy-share icon appear, it goes into the dump. Here is what I got from the event log.

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000050 (0xffffff98, 0x00000001, 0x8044f4fc, 0x00000000). Microsoft Windows 2000 [v15.2195]. A dump was saved in: C:\WINNT\MEMORY.DMP.

    I checked the dmp file and it is HUGE. I reboot in safe mode and try to uninstall Kodak Easy-share and I get a windows error message not allowing me to uninstall that or any other program.

    I did disconnect the new 60gb HD and go back to the old 4gb HD with the same Win2000 operating system and it boots and runs great. Ran it like that for several hours so I don't think it is defective ram.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    When W2K writes fulll memory dump and it writes the minidump at \winnt\minidumps which is around 64K. Attach the minidumps here. This forum only *.txt or .zip so you have to either zip the minidump or rename it *.txt.

    Mini Dumps

    Thanks for your help. Attached is a zip file with 4 mini dumps. There were several with 0 kb for some reason. I attached only those that had 64 kb.

    1. W2K SP4 patch level is 3 years behind. You had better upgrade to latest level. I
    2. Most probably it is faulty ram
    3. Run hijackthis and check any known problem at your w2k
    4. You had better re-install your W2K as a lot of software which 6 years old.

    Thanks for your help!

    Thanks for your help with this problem. Is it possible to run service pack 4 from safe mode?

    I did try some other older ram chips in the computer. I still got a memory dump, however, the codes were not exactly the same.

    I assume you did not see any specific file that may be causing the problem? The other problem I am having is I cannot add/remove programs in safe mode for some reason.

    Yes, your version is old and Microsoft does not the symbolic file of your version and I cannot format the stack trace of your minidump.

    Re-install your W2K or upgrade W2K3 may resolve the problem.
