another memory stick inside your computer

See if you can boot into Windows safe mode (tap F8 as soon as PC is switched on, choose "safe mode" or "safe mode with networking" if the first option fails. When in Windows, go to Add/Remove Programs and see what unused software can be uninstalled (as much as possible). Then try a normal re-boot. If Windows boots normally, it's now time to have a look at how many documents, images or music files can be copied to CD/DVD and then delete the originals, otherwise it won't be long before the problem comes up again.

Go ahead and make a bootable floppy with it (there are instructions on the site).
Then put the floppy in your ill computer and boot up. It should go strait to the DOS tool, if not then you are going to need to change the settings in your BIOS to boot from floppy disk before hard drive. When your computer starts, you will see a screen that says "Hit __ to enter BIOS" or something of that nature. It's usually del, esc, or one of the f keys but it varies from each computer. Hit that key, and once in BIOS look around until you find where you can edit the boot order. Change it so that floppy is first (usually by using the arrow keys). Make sure to save and exit, then restart the computer.
Once you manage to boot into the DOS tool, you're going to have to manually delete files.
This is a bit tricky and you need to be careful you don't delete anything important.
First, let's get into your Documents.
If your operating system is Windows 95, then type:
If your operating system is Windows 98 or ME, then type:
cd C:\My Documents\
If your operating system is Windows ME, 2000, or XP, then type:
cd C:\Documents and Settings\PUT YOUR USERNAME HERE\My Documents\
You should now be in your My Documents folder. Type dir to view all the folders and files in My Documents. To delete a file:
For example, lets say theres a word document called "Family.doc" you want to delete. You just do:
To delete a whole folder, instead of the del command use the rd command.
If you want to go in to sub folders and delete then type cd folder. For example, to go into "My Pictures" type cd My Pictures. Then type dir to see all files and folders.
Heres the 4 basic commands you are going to use...
cd - This changes the folder that you are in. For example, to get to the root C: folder, you would type: "cd C:\" (no quotes). Let's say you are viewing a subfolder and want to get back to the main folder. typing "cd .." will get you one folder up (ie from My Pictures to My Documents).
dir - This lists all the current folders in your directory. This is important to know what folders are inside the folder you are viewing.
del - This will delete a single file. BE CAREFUL DO NOT DELETE IMPORTANT OPERATING FILES
rd - This will delete a single folder. BE CAREFUL DO NOT DELETE FOLDERS LIKE C:\WINDOWS OR ANYTHING IMPORTANT!!!!
This is going to be difficult to do, you will have to find unneeded files by browsing with the cd and dir commands. You can do no harm with the cd and dir commands, so get comfortable with them. Once you find some files you want to delete, use the del command. I cannot stress the power of this del and rd tools. Don't make the problem worse. Any questions I'd be happy to answer.

*** STOP: 0x00000073 (0x00000001, 0xC000017D, 0x00000002, 0xF8165BB8)
Followed by the "beginning dump of physical memory" and then after a count up, "pysical memory dump complete."
I am not able to boot up into Windows at all. It's just a cycle no matter what option I choose.
I am running Windows XP Professional w/ Service Pack 2 on a newer Dell laptop. The laptop has no floppy drive. The problem occurred shortly after transfering about 350 full-res holiday photos to the laptop - assuming it has something to do with the issue (?). But in any event...
I tried booting in all 3 safe modes with no luck. I then tried to boot to the "Last Known Good Configuration" option to no avail.
Any suggestions for my next step? Again, the laptop doesn't have a flopyy drive. My only other computer is a PowerMac G4 running OS 10.3.9.

If you run the windows xp installation and try to install on top of the existing installation, it gives an option to convert to NTFS, once that is done, it will force a reboot.
After reboot, Windows comes up normally.
Hope it works for you like it did for me!
