Windows 7: Crashes when I close my laptop lid

Crashes when I close my laptop lid

So I had fixed this problem before, for a whole 2 weeks or so. Then it started up again. Before, I just ran Driver Reviver and it pretty much fixed everything.

System Specs:
Windows 7 Professional x86
Intel Core 2 Duo 1.60 GHz
4.00 GB (2.90 usable) RAM

Now the same problem came up again. Except this time, it doesnt always bluescreen. Instead it does some black crash report thing)

Hi TheEvilMuffin

You dont have any minidump in your folders.

To enable minidump please read this,

Copy\paste this >---> sysdm.cpl in start search,then click in the appeared sysdm.cpl
Click on 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.
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump
Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.
Now we must wait for a new crash\bsod to occur.
After the new crash\bsod run again http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html
And upload again here the new folders.

Ok I believe I replicated the crash again. The crash changes every now and then. Sometimes it doesn't crash, sometimes it BSODs sometimes it just won't start up again and sometimes it goes to some screen where it says something along the lines of "media cable disconnected" (its a black screen).

Anyways here's the new zip file (hopefully with minidumps)

When I enabled minidumps using your instructions, it said Small memory dump 128 kB in the dropdown rather than 256 kB. I selected that hoping you meant 128 kB.

Again no minidumps.

If you use any cleaner stop.

Tip: Also during hard disk clean up you delete minidumps.

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker you may need to run it 2-3 times to "fix" everything.

Ok is there any way I can check to make sure I actually have a minidump file?

Ok well I ran the System File Checker 3 times and it seemed to fix whatever it needed to fix in the first run. My minidump folder is empty and I can't seem to replicate the crash again. I will update this thread as soon as it happens though

No mimidump.

A question,you had\have just a crash or crash\bsod?

To enable minidump you can Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
