Hi All,
I have written a Borland C++ Builder program. When I run it after 10 to 30 minutes the program crashed with a overflow memory error message .

I tried to find the error but after half a day of trying now the Laptop crashed with a blue screen saying "Physical Memory dumped" or similar. This is actually happen after five minutes or less when I start the Laptop and login to Windows2000.

Two times it was happend as I start the Laptop it started with a blue screen saying my Bios update is not the right one. Please update it or contact your Admin.

I really do not know what I have done or my program has done. Do you have any suggestions what I could do to solve the problem?

Thanks,
Ronald

You may have a corrupted BIOS or memory. I would suggest going to the manufacturers web site and downloading the 2nd last update as usually the newest BIOS' are untested. Also, I would check the memory by using a utility like Sysoft Sandra or trying the memory on another PC. ANother way to test you PC's memory is by going into the BIOS and turning Fast Boot off so it checks your memory on startup.

First of all:

boot the box and get into the BIOS setup. Find something like "Load default settings", accept the changes and boot the box again.

If this doesn't help, you will probably have to re-install the BIOS as per Vinnnnies instruction. Regarding available BIOS versions: I always load latest IBM BIOS on all my laptops, - stability of release versions depend on the morality of the company.

Considering that you are making a Borland C++ Builder program, you should probably suspect your code of bad behaviour. Identify any critical part of your code (any 'fancy' stuff like in-line asembler and other dangerous stuff).
