    I have a Windows 2000 Pro machine that I just built. The hard drive was formatted and the OS installed clean. All security patches and updates- including SP4 have been applied.

    The machine keeps rebooting for no apparent reason. IT has done it 3 times this morning already. Each time it dumps memory and creates a *.DMP file. My question is this- what program do I use or how do I view the DMP file to make some sense out of it and try to determine what is causing the system to crash repeatedly?

    Hey Hey Tony.

    You have a couple options available to you. The first is Windbg, you can download it from here ( ). Secondly there is a command prompt command (that's repetetive. heh) called dumpchk.exe. Try out dumpchk /? for more information on the command. Remember that .dmp files are in hex, so you could always pull up your favourite hex editor and see if it returns anything useful.
