    Hello all, just joined the forum to reply tot his thread, re :pHYSICAL DUMP ERROR as it a very common problem that you can waste a lot of time and energy on, and it is always intermittent because, ITS ALMOST ALWAYS CAUSED BY BAD MEMORY CHIPS, beg borrow or buy some different ram to what you are using now, and it will be fixed. We all make the mistake of assuming that RAM is infallible, it is not . There are ram testing programs available, but they all require to be booted from a disc,etc. If you think about it , there is a clue is in the message itself.

    Dumping error

    Hey guys;

    When I am doing the computer, halted and blue screen error popped up. A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to the computer.
    The error was following:
    ***STOP: 0X00000019(0X00000020, 0X83325358, 0X83325398, 0X0A080008)

    Beginning dump of physical memory.
    Physical memory dump system adminstrator, etc.

    What does it mean? How can I prevent it? Is it a dangerous error?

    Any suggestions will be helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Blue Screen - overrun a stack-based buffer

    I copied this from a 2-year old post, because it is precisely what I see when I attempt to access my 3-1/2" floppy drive.
    The reply to the original was "buy new memory".
    I recently upgraded from 512mb to 2gb - max available for Dell Dimension 3000.
    The ONLY time this error has occured is when selecting A-drive. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the floppy drive and floppy drive controller a few times in various sequences with no change.

    "A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer. This overrun could potentially
    a malicious
    user to gain control of this machine.

    If this is the first time you've seen this error screen,
    restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
    these steps:

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
    If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
    for any windows updates you might need.

    If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
    or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
    If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart
    your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then
    select Safe Mode.

    It has occured before but rarely.
    Now it happens all the time!

    Most likely a driver issue.

    I get exactly the same blue screen as the one mentioned. I checked my hard disk through properties, tools, but since i didnt see the answer of the scan I scanned my memory for errors and it reported that there is an error.
    I have Lenovo Thinkpad R61i which has windows vista business
    Processor: Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2390 @ 1.87GHz 1.86GHz
    Memory: 2.00GB
    System type: 32-bit operating system

    What should i do to fix this problem?!

    Personally I don't support in this Topic, and by looking back it seems others are not getting supported in this old topic anyway.

    All members should first read the Stickies at the top of this forum: >>> BSOD Help & Support

    I'd prefer this old topic was CLOSED

    I have a similar situation as the OP, but I am not sure about the exact error numbers so I'll just retell.

    So I was using my computer normally as I have been since I got it (some time ago), and out of no where it completely freezes up, nothing works. So I press the power switch, and after some time (pretty long, thought it was weird and worth mentioning) it turns off and I restart.

    Everything seems fine, so I go back to what I was doing. Then, it happens again (within I'd say 30 minutes of the first one). I'm getting kind of annoyed now, so I restart it again and scan my computer for some bug. Nothing was found on my computer, so I'm thinking it must be a problem with power supply or overheating.

    After a couple more freezes (longer intervals, though), I check my fans and they're all working, and I really didn't want to go through the hassle of checking my power supply, so I just turned my computer off for the night and tried it about an hour ago.

    Today, about 10 minutes after turning it on, it freezes for a few seconds then slams me with the blue screen error that the OP mentioned. I do play computer games, but I don't just get it when I'm playing them; it happens when I'm on the internet (for example). I haven't reproduced the error YET, so I don't know what to think of it. Right now I'm booted with a past set up so maybe it was a bad installation.

    Edit: Whenever my computer is about to go down, it makes clicking noises for a while before it does (the actual computer, not a noise on the internet or something), which actually makes me think it's definitely not some program.

    How do i pause the error?

    Okay, i have the Blue Screen of Death infrequently but i have had it ever since i got my new computer (like 5 months ago). I probably get the error once every 1 or 2 weeks. My question at the moment is how do i make the error pause on screen so i can write down the specifics, as you only have about 30 seconds to find a note pad, or in my case jump over a table and fall over a chair in a desperate effort to get a camera, before the computer restarts. I saw someone explain how to do it a couple months ago but i have long since forgotten where i saw, any ideas?

    Reason to dumping of physical memory

    Hey guy's I am a computer nerd.I think I can give u a reason to this:- it's because while playing a game or doing something the RAM merges up the files and losses out some system files so the blue screen appears and say's 'dumping physical memory'. This is a kind of serious problem to some computers because in some cases the system gets crashed when the blue screen is on. And if you are using windows vista and higher version u will have to insert the os CD and click repair. This could set the problem up.

    my question to every person above is why did everyone post their question under one topic? If you all have individual problems it would make it easier to make a new topic about your issue then perhaps you will get the answer you are looking for.

Ive done the role back system restore thing for windows vista and pushing F8 and everything... I'm just lost now and i need my computer for school... any ideas would be very much appreciated

    Blue Screen, Memory Dump

    I hear all about these games, the Call Of Duty..........I have this part 2, which it sometimes affects to have blue screens... When I used adobe photoshop CS3.., The Sim City 4, and others, Memory Dump Shows Up, due to Physical Memory.... As well as browsing and loading long and hard in facebook...cityville.... It is really shocking when it shows up.... The problem is its Physical View or Resolution Advanced effect or something, when it loads longer or slower, it might cause Blue Screen or memory dump....For me to prevent this, I check the performance in the Task Manager preventing goes high after loading my Anti-Virus which is Kaspersky Anti Virus 2011, second latest today, preventing the graph going higher by draging the scroll in any browser slowly, showing drag movements in any games slowly in care like in call of duty2 or flight simulator X, and others........................ang also prevent programs which is slower loading, means logging.....I hate this physical memory dump or something.....

    Try to erase something which is not important in your directories
    or %SystemRoot%\TEMP
    Use Run for windows vista or Windows 7
    I should have apple software to prevent viruses, but which I do not prefer yet

    No problem with this, If you would check mine.....12/30/2010
