    I will set the stage before I ask the question. Also, I have searched for this with no avail. Someone please help me out! I have the brand new 2.53 MBP, 4 gigs of ram, and the 512 9800GT. I am running xp pro sp3 through boot camp. Recently, when playing fallout 3 - after about 10 minutes of gameplay - I get the blue screen of death, telling me I had a physical memory dump. I do not think this is a hardware issue, as I am pretty up to date with that. Additionally, the only stuff I have installed in windows is a few games. This happens every time I start playing this game. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Well, I don't know if you have had this answered yet, but the PMD is usually a sign that an application is causing a crash. Troubleshoot by seeing if this happens only when one particular game is running, orif it is occurring when nothing is running, etc. If you can narrow it down to one application, you can reinstall that app or troubleshoot further by seeing if that app has known bugs.
