    Question Error - Stack Dump

    Hey guys,

    My cousin (who by far is the best student I've ever had, she's never had any errors!) has a frequent error "stack dump" and has to reboot. This happens when she's trying to load a game, go online, not anything specific.

    What is this error? How do I fix this?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Sharon

    Runtime errors are errors in the program detected during its execution. In this case an error message is given and a dump of the call stack of objects is generated.

    Does your cousin have more information on the type of stack dump. When she gets the error there should be a bunch of numbers following the stack dump..
    I in fact have never gotten a stack dump in windows XP. Previous versions were notorious for it.. among other errors.
    Once I have the complete stack dump information I can offer a fix or at least a suggestion.

    She should try the following as a general guideline,
    make sure she has all her drivers updated.
    check her hardware, including her ram, HDD, etc...
    She might run a chkdsk in the command prompt.
    She might also want to see about getting a patch for the game and making sure the game is updated.

    Further she might want to make sure her hardware is compatible with the game.
    Last she might try a motherboard and graphics card BIOS update, but this is very risky and can cause your PC to become inoperable..
    Just some general advice.
    I would say if possible to update to windows Xp, I think the home version update is only $99.00 US..
    If that is not possible then try the previous suggestions.
