Windows 7: No Minidump

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
 
 
No Minidump

Hi, I'm having a crash problem which seems worse now because I am not getting any minidump after the crash. Basically, my computer restarts randomly, regardless or what I'm doing and regardless of the workload of the job. It doesn't create minidump even thought it's activated under Startup and Recovery. All I have is an event log 41 Kernel-Power that happened within the last hour. It also says this in case it's of any help:

+ System - Provider [ Name] Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power [ Guid] {331C3B3A-2005-44C2-AC5E-77220C37D6B4}

This sounds like a heat issue to me... Download CPUZ and post a screenshot of your temps... Make sure that you have sufficient ventilation.. Use a can of compressed air to throughly clean any dust that may be collecting in your fans, PSU and GPU... Also what PSU are you using??

Also run SFC /scannow to check/repair your core windows files...

PSU: Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W ATX12V V2.2 Intel Core i7
Ventilation: good, I added a fan for my memory and another for my north bridge.
I ran SFC /scannow and it reads "started" when I go to services.msc, even though I don't see any results.
I ran CPUZ but I didn't see any section for temperature. I've checked the temp before and it's been something like 40 degrees and 38 degrees, pretty standard.

BTW a while ago I accidentally broke off a very tiny mobo component. Perhaps... that's the problem?

The temps sound ok... as for the mobo, it depends what you broke off... when did the problems begin?? The PSU may be a bit underpowered, but we'll address that later... we may need to enable driver verifier just to rule out a driver problem...

I broke off a tiny piece next to the rear audio jack, now when I plug my speakers there I can only hear one of them, which is why I have them in the front green in now. So I don't know if that could cause it.

The problems began months ago, but some weeks the computer restarts once or twice, sometimes more than once a day. It restarted again just now with the same error.

Log Name: system
Level: critical
Source: Kernel-power
Task Category: (63)
Keywords: (2)

-Verifier-

I don't know how to use it, but I just made it do the following:

Automatically select unsigned drivers: none found.
Automatically select drivers built for older versions of windows: Symantec CFC Firewall was the only one. I clicked finish and restarted and nothing happened. Maybe that's normal.

What else should I do?

If you get a crazy message from Win 7 about your paging file being too small, then just ignore the message since we have already made sure that the paging file is set to be managed by Win 7.

The problem seems to have gone away after I did the following:

1) Did a clean install of the OS
2) Rearranged and air-cleaned memory slots.

Thanks for the help.
