I have a Dell Latitude E6430:

Core i5 3210M 64Bit
4GB RAM
SSD 250GB

A couple of weeks ago, an error has been affecting my laptop when I shutdown it:

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to you computer..."

"...Collecting data for crash dump...
Initializing disk for crash dump...
Beginning dump of physical memory
Dumping physical memory to disk: 80"

The first days, it only ocurrs sometimes but now, it appears everytime I shutdown the laptop, it is really a kick in the "3 letters".

What can I do?
Thanks.
P.D. Attached is the picture of the blue screen.

There are several things to look at here:
Bad RAM (download memtest86+, burn it to a CD, and boot it to test the RAM)
Viruses/spyware (scan with Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Housecall)
Analyze the crash dump file to see what module is causing the problem
Corrupted software (less likely)


If it is really giving the error all of the time, try booting in Safe Mode (F8 on startup), let it finish, then shut it down.  If it shuts down correctly, try rebooting, running msconfig, and eliminating items from Startup (first) and Services (non-microsoft) to see if one of them is causing the problem.

If you need better details, just ask!
