Getting crash to desktops, full system hangs, and reboots.

Hey guys, as the title describes, getting some annoying hangs and reboots.
not entirely sure why, although i can put it down to graphics issues of some sort. but i'm no expert.

here's the zip using your diagnostic tool!
thanks

Unfortunately, there is no dump file there. Make sure you have your system configured for mini dumps. Read the last part of the first post in this tutorial: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...en-forums.html

there is no windows\minidump folder to access for the dump files. could they have been saved elsewhere?

ah ok, my system wasn't configured to create a minidump file. so do i need to wait until my next hang to run the dumper again?

Yes. Upload after your next BSOD.
