    Unhappy Memory Dump problem

    Hi,

    I have been experiencing constant (1x per day) memory dump problems and its getting pretty annoying. Is this harmful to my PC? Also I have attached the mini memory dump file. I don't know whats seems to be the problem. Can you guys help me out?

    Thanks!

    You need to change from automatic restart so you can look at the crash screen. The "dump" is some odd ball format you can't easily read.

    In Win 7, right click "my computer", "Properties", "Advanced System Settings", "Startup and recovery - settings".

    Uncheck "automatic restart".

    That way the crash screen will remain and you can get some useable clues there. If you see something like "IRQ not equal... blah, blah,"... it's likely a hardware conflict. Hit "reset" to continue the restart.

    But... we need more information: operating system, and your level of expertise so we know how to start you troubleshooting.

    oafilt.sys is a Creative sound driver according to Google. Is this file noted in all the crashes?

    So I would uninstall and reinstall your sound drivers for starters.

    Also, when did this start. You may want to just restore to an earlier time.

    Wow thanks chuckie, I have researched about this file during my google searches and found out almost all BSOD is caused by this. From what I understand, it is from the Creative Labs USB Sound Card which always conflicts with Windows 7 (especially Ultimate Ed x64 bit in which I have both) which neither Windows or Creative have a full fix. This BSOD occurs usually in games and/or media players (in which mine occured when I play PC games).

    One possible solution to this though is deleting the file itself which is located in c:windows/system32/drivers/

    In most case it fixed most of the users that has a Creative USB Sound Card while on Windows 7. I'm going to try that to see if it helps.

    Thanks again!
