Use XP's Event Viewer to see if it has some entries related to your probem ---perhaps by date & time.
Start button/ Run / type
eventvwr.msc<enter> --
or Go to Control Panel / Performance and Maintenance/Administrative Tools >Event Viewer.
Review the sections and look for Errors or Warnings that match the time the event occurred.
Double click the line that is at issue---the information may give a clue.

Take a look at David Candy's suggestions here
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain/browse_thread/thread/bcf11e00906add92/81a7ffbd2b7f8e3a?q=0x1000000a&rnum=5&hl=en#81a7ffbd2b7f8e3a

Before this particular error showed up, had anyone made hardware changes, or updated or changed programs, or changed drivers?
That's to say, can you recall a significant change prior to this?

thx for your reply

i have checked on event viewer and just before the save dump(of the
error)i get 2 information-"Microsoft (R) Windows (R) 5.01. 2600 Service
Pack 2 Multiprocessor Free" and "he Event log service was started"... i
dont think this may have anything to do with it? At the moment im
following the advice you gave me from your link, using verifier, i will
reply when i get the blue screen with the error message again

thanks
