What is minidump files

Question

my system keeps re-starting itself. I thought it may have been the operating system or other software I had loaded. I have re-loaded XP and no other software apart from the drivers for the various items connected but still it keeps re-starting. Especially when I am on the net, it does it every few minutes. I get no warning it just restarts. I have been recieveing an error report.

c:\windows\minidump\mini072803-01.dmp I have tried everything to stop this but I can't.

Could it be a power source problem. It's driving me mad.....tracey

Hello Tracey..

I have done some research on this and i come to have found that the minidump files are small files that tell you what was running in the memory which caused your computer to crash the crash They are very small so you can just ignore them They are not the cause of your problem just maybe a helping hand to solve them So i suggest uninstalling the last program you installed before your computer started having this problem and then take it from there.

I hope this has helped you

Good luck
