Windows 7: Cannot find BSOD Dump File -

Cannot find BSOD Dump File -

Since installing Windows 7 I have been having frequent BSODs (like every 2-3 minutes - I was trying to follow the instructions for requesting help with BSOD's but unfortunately the screen comes & goes so fast I cannot read the file locations for the DUMP File Locations!

I have removed all peripherals - only the mouse, kybd and screen remain - and it STILL dies! I changed Memory, changed HDs, disconnected the CD/DVD drive, the 3.5" drive and removed SW - still getting BSoD's.

I've tried to search for the Dump File but end up with another BSOD before I find anything. So I am unable to follow the insturctions for requesting help with BSODs - wish I could do as you ask...

I put another HD in loaded with XP and started having even more problems - the system no longer recognizes the 3.5" or CD/DVD Drive so the HDD is the only possibility to boot from - but it cannot find the files - then sometimes it finds them and boots normally for a little while then i get another BSOD. Sometimes it doesn't recognze the HDD - says there are no boot devices (I reattached the 3.5" and CD/DVD drives)

I'm ready to throw away my desktop and buy another! But I'll give you guys a chance.

I never had ANY problems with XP - it all started wth Windows 7. I am very frustrated with Windows 7 - no or poor drivers for my photo quality HP printer, no driver for a quality scanner from Epson - did MS ask if other companies would support the new OS?!

Maybe I'l go with a Apple after 30+ years with MS systems. Vista was crap, Windows 7 is only marginally better.... I feel I'm just throwing money away.

Not a happy camper in MS land...

BSOD No Dump Files

Howdy - I owe Microsoft and Win7 a apology it appears. I did not believe the Trojan explanation for my BSOD's that Microsoft gave and eventualy found I had a bad motherboard causing my problems. I guess its easy to blame the SW when things go bad - especially since problems got worse following the W7 installation. I guess coincidences do happen sometimes.

Anyway, a new MoBo has solved most of the problems - I did find my HD full of my data files. I suspect Carbonite caused these problems. I have found several Document folders with identical information and my 500GB HD became ~95%% filled,

I'm now using Clone Spy to remove the duplicate folders and files to free up some space. But it appears I've fixed the primary problem causing the BSOD's. Maybe I'll try the suggested Trojan removing tool I was directed to by MS. Shouldn't hurt anything ;-)

Thx to all who tried to help me/
