thanks for the reply. I had a error message at one time that virtual memory was low. Before the blue screen started. I have run a registry cleaner but doesnt seem to help. I have Win XP sp3, AMD hard drive, kPheonix Bios, etc. The errors always end referring to Physical Memory Dump. Also, cannot boot into Safe Mode--goes right into the Windows normal start. I did change the paging item and the virtual memory tab as described in MSFT knowledge base. (a little knowledge is a dangerous thing in my case). PC stays on for about 1-2 hours then blue screen takes over. Again, many thanks.
