    I was beginning to play a game on MSN games and as the game started I was also talking to a friend on AIM and I got the blue screen that says dumping all physical memory. I was just wondering if someone could help me and tell me what I need to do to get it of my screen.

    i presume it is not on your screen now as you posted this message unless it is on another computer. if still on other computer do either a ctrl-alt-del or press the reset button to restart the computer. do a scandisk to check for errors. the system might have just burped causing the blue screen of death - bsod. keep an eye out for that just in case it happens again & write down the info so can do a search to the cause

    I thought this problem was solved so I am lost why we are not talking about RAM.

    BSOD are not necessiarily RAM related, more often than not, they are nothing to do with RAM - bad coded software is the most common cause, where there is a memory leak because the code doesn't release resources when finished with and keeps calling for more resources as it is being used again and again - hence a BSOD occurs.

    i think we are finshed so either amr12391 didn't read the posts right or is acting as a big shot with his caps on so your guess is as good as mine as what is going on with him
