When a serious error occurs and the PC restarts, it does a "memory dump" of critical RAM data to a hard disk file, in case a skilled technician needs to examine the file as it may give the cause.

Its just creating a file of data that may help diagnose the problem, nothing more.

As to why it crashed, it could be many things, from overheating, faulty memory, a bug in the game program, a virus or trojan, or any of another 1000 things.

Does it crash often?
