Memory Dump?

Had a memory dump this morning, I was in a excel file and had VCS minimized and  clicked on the VCS minimized to bring it on screen and things went blue. Some
of the language on screen follows:

XXXSTOP: 0x00000050(0xD677D67B,0 x 00000001, 0 x 00000000, 0 x 00000000)
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE-AREA

C PUD: GenuineIntel 6.5.2 irql:1f SYSVER  0xf0000565

The rest of the screen was full of all types of data & symbols.

Where can I find info on these specific errors.  Also What do you think causes this?

microsoft supplies two resourcekit utils to examine dumps and get more info.
best way is to search the bugcheckcode into the microsoft knowledge base

Does the machine happen to be a Compaq?  If so, its probably the Compaq Insight manager causing the error.  To work around it, try this...

Rename the following files found in %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers;

Cpqsdm.sys - which is the SCSI Device Manager
Sysmgmt.sys - which is the Systems Management Driver

Hope this helps.

If that's the case then I would suspect that you have a contaminated font file within Excel.  That can cause the error you posted.  I would reinstall Excel first.
