what error do these dump files show

I have attached some dump files from my Windows XP.  What error is showing up that is causing my blue screen of death?

Also how can I check my own mini dump files?

Hi
To check your own dump files, you need a tool that's called "dumpchk".
It is not included in windows xp installation but you can install it from your windows XP installation CD.
Put the cd in drive and go to Support folder and then Tools folder and then run "Setup.exe"
after installing the tool do the following:

Start menu >> Run >> Type "CMD" and press enter >> navigate to the dump files folder and type the following command:

dumpchk Mini081011-01.dmp              (for example)
Then it shows the detailed information of the dump file plus the crashing state.

Your dump files show that "FDC.sys" is the crashing driver.
So you need to solve the problem with this driver.
I guess it's related to Floppy Disk Drive and if you don't use your floppy disk drive  Go to Bios settings and disable it from there and watch the results and then tell me.
