    Default Try this!!!

    Go to:

    Right clic on My computer>properties>advanced>startup and recovery>settings>system failures.

    and then you have to uncheck the automatically restart option.

    Before you shut it down next time, click on START, RUN, then type chkdsk /f (note space between k and /) in the box and hit ENTER. It will tell you it can't run and ask if you want to run on restart. Say yes and restart. It will run a disk check. If you get the error message again, it should give you the option to send to Microsoft, send it, then you should get the option to look at possible solutions. Sometimes it will tell you why it happened. Have you added any new hardware or software just before the problem started? Charlie

    Check your drivers, especially the video driver. Try updating them, if no update available, try rolling back to previous driver. Charlie

    Hi mithun - "physical memory dump and gives me some drivers no". Are you saying that the memory dump is telling you that there are drivers missing? Are you getting any other error message with your blue screen? Something like ox00000000, and other stuff? If so what is it?
    If you are having trouble finding the details of your video driver you can download and run the free program at the link below. Your video card details will be listed under the heading 'Display'. Regards.
