memory dumping

By victormjr ·
i have a question about memory dumping.every once and a while my pc experiences memory dumps,(especially during gaming).my question is how and/or why does this happen? i know that the more memory you have the better the performance.each time it dumps out i have to reboot,can the apps or games i use be that powerful that it cant handle it? i have an amd based pc with w2k os.

If you're having problems mostly during gaming, make sure you have the AMD Reg hack for Win2k AGP and also, I would try to update your vid card drivers.

If that doesn't work, get mem-test and run a scan overnight to verify if your memory modules are going out on you.

If it is a download, can you point me in the right direction,like a link or website i can visit? i did upgrade my video card drivers, so i gonna root them out for now.

Search for one.

I used a program called Gold Memory Ver. 5.07. It needs a DOS boot disk. I found quite a few DOS based and a fair number which did not (explicitly) require DOS.
