Windows 7: Dumping Physical Memory to Disk BSOD (Random and Frequent)

Dumping Physical Memory to Disk BSOD (Random and Frequent)

Hey guys, I'm new here, but heard a lot from other guys, that this the place I could get some help from.

So, since past few months i'm gettin random BSOD's while surfing and more while I'm watching some movies on media player or spending time with my MW2

It happens quite frequently now like 2-3 times if I'm on the PC for about 8-9 hours. The blue screen shows "dumping physical memory to disk 100% complete".

I hope I get rid of this thing.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

Thanks a lot zigzag for response. I've attached all files in the minidump folder. I hope they provide enough info for you.

More than enough.

Your crashes were caused by two things. SPTD.SYS, and your Symantec

I would remove symantec and replace with Microsoft security essentials

Download and run the Norton Removal Tool to uninstall your Norton product | Norton Support

http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/


ALSO and important

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp,sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads

when you're done you can use this Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) in its place. MagicISO - Convert BIN to ISO, Create, Edit, Burn, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter/extractor/editor

OR

SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive

Wow! Thanks a ton zigzag. I'll get on it right now. And is security essentials good enough or should I look for another security suite?

And I'll get back to you, hopefully with positive outcomes. Thanks a again

Well I've got some bad news. I uninstalled daemon tools and Norton 2010, and tried installing security essentials but it got stuck 2-3 times while installing, so I installed Norton 2011 trial instead. And within 30 mins. or so of just surfing, I got another BSOD. I've attached the minidump file, and I wonder if it's the Norton again.
