    Yes, it's safe to delete the minidump. As for the rest of your post I'm afraid I'm not sure what you are asking.

    If you mean the memory.dmp file, yes it could be deleted, this file usually is created when ever you get a memory dump blue screen.

    Yes thanks i will delete the MINIDUMP
    But on the second reply yes my graphics card failed and a blue creen with the message NV_4 DISP came up and i know its not driver related and aslo know my card is on its way out,the blue creen said it was dumping my PHYSICAL MEMEORY to DISC so that why it a 512mb file in my note pad attachment ,but how do i find and delete it.
    Would a search be best?.

    It's probably in the root of your boot drive, but if not sure, a search.

    You might want to go to System Properties - Advanced - Startup & Recovery Settings and change the setting for Write Debugging Information to NONE. This will prevent future dump writes.
