Default labtop problem

Here's the problem: Whenever I turn on my labtop and after couple seconds of using it, the screen suddenly turns blue and on the top says "beginning dump of physical memory" and then below it says "physical dump complete" then my labtop restarts. I think the cause of the problem was because I turned the labtop off by unplugging it [rather than doing the proper shut down] because it kept freezing. Any solutions to this problem? I know I didn't download any virus-infected programs because I have A LOt of anti-virus firewalls and the only things I put on the computer are: starcraft, msn messenger, and limewire. Any help will be appreciated.

Here are my specs: Windows 2000 professional, Pentium4, 400 Mhz

Try startin in safe mode and removin any anti-viruses/firewall but keep the best one because the different anti-virus programs may be fightin each other and screwin stuff up. then reboot and tell me what happens.

I think its a hardware failure morely on memory. You should visit the shop where you bought the laptop.
