In a month, I have had about 5 physical memory dumps already.
I have 6 GBs of ram and it tells me in task manager that I have:
a total of 5928MB
Cached: 3003 MB
Available: 3165 MB (changes from that to around 4000MB though)
Free: hovering at 216 at the moment.
I don't think it's a bad ram... I just bought this laptop. I've tried many ways to see what exactly is the problem but I just can't find it. And my free memory is so scary low...
Any thoughts on why I'm having these memory dumps or how I can increase my free memory?
Note: Windows 7 system report says no problem with my ram... I wonder how people with only 2 GBs of Ram are pulling through with their windows 7 these days then... :/[/COLOR]
The built in windows diagnostic isnt sufficient you need memtest86.
There were no DMP files included in the upload please try this method.
To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.
* 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.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
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.
