one thing you can do would be control panel/ system/ advanced tab / startup and recovery/ and untick the "automatic restart box"

Perhaps you will get a better error code or description for us to look at..

a minidump is created by Windows XP/2003.net when your computer crashes by dumping the information contained the RAM and/or your system cache to a check (log) file. Different settings cause different things to be done with the file, for XP nothing beyond crearting a log will happen.

For 99.999999% of people its completly useless... its not something to worry about either, next time you reboot the file SHOULD be erased, or windows will do it when you clean up a drive. It written into the Windows system files so trying to remove it is probably not a good idea.

Windows 2000 (pro and server) does more or less the same thing but calls it a RAMdump or SysDump depending on the type of failure.

Here is a tool that might help you troubleshoot the problem:

I would say its either bad memory or needs reseating or you do infact have a virus. Try a scan Here first before going on.

In addition if this is a heat issue try removing the case side to see if it continues to crash..
