Default Physical memory dumping?

Sometimes when I run Mirc I get the blue screen and it says : Beggining to dump physical memory. then computer restarts. it also shows an error code which i can't remember because the blue screen stays on for only 2 seconds.

b/w I run xp corp sp1

Why does it happen?

What does it mean?

Is there a fix for it?

usually a driver or irq conflict. dumping physical memory means it's taking whatever was in RAM at that moment and clearing it out and write a dump file for troubleshooting. or something to that effect.
to resolve such an issue first identify the file that causes the issue on the blue screen. then check microsoft's website for similar articles that might apply and lastly, send tthe dumpfile to microsoft and wait forever for an answer or reinstall OS...

If you would like the screen to stay on so that you can copy the information down and post here later you can goto System Properties in the control panel > Advanced > Startup and Recovery. Uncheck the option bit to Automatically Reboot.
