I so much want help...because usually I get BSOD when I play some game... Only that appears to be in some of my games...not all. He just freezes and I need to wait 'till restart appears, because in hope of getting something about the crash... but nothing. And "long time ago" I have configured my comp to create minidump files , BUT NONE OF THEM I GET! I even installed "blue Screen view" and nothing... help me somehow to find those small 256kb files and that I can post them here for some possible solution to my problem.
To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
