Windows 7 "Dumping Physical Memory to Disk" message - what does it mean?


Sep 27, 2013
a little while ago my computer started giving me this error message, a black screen with what I think are codes and then at the bottom it says "Dumping physical memory to disk" followed by a percentage. It does this either right after I turn my laptop on, or after I've logged into my account/settings. It keeps doing it more and more often, today it took me four tries before I could start it up without the message.
I have an Acer Aspire 5349-2481, if that helps.
