I was working on my computer the other day and it suddenly cut out on me, it clicked and then kindly restarted its self. When my system (Windows XP SP2) loaded I was greeted by this nice message from Windows:



Do you think that's a problem with my RAM because my computer has 256 MB of it and its cheap. I was only viewing some files an iso image file. Anyway my computer doesn't seam on the task if you know what I mean the mouse will stall for a bit when I am typing.

I do not have a net connection and have no viruses or spyware this is meant to be my new computer lol, any suggestions on how the error was causes?

Thanks for reading, What do you think?

you said you were trying to view some images from an ISO image. if this ISO was an image disk, you cannot view files from it. if it was made with norton ghost ect..

you must have the same software that the ISO was made with to veiw it.

May I ask what is so "crazy" about this error. I see it all the time. It most likely occured because your system restarted without a proper shutdown/restart. As for shutting down because of insufficent RAM, possibly. You said your mouse is stalling, open up task manager and click processes tab and see if anything hogging cpu time. Make sure that Windows XP SP2 was installed correctly. It can cause glitches if not. Download it from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...be-3b8e-4f30-8245-9e368d3cdb5a&DisplayLang=en

Re: Errors

I've gotten that very commonly on my XP machine. Did it say anything about "minidump.dmp" or "sysdata.xls"? This is a common error on XP machines. I don't know why, and I don't know a solution, unfoutunately.
