Regular BSOD, usually within one hour of reboot. No specific task causing it (anything really, browsing net, playing games, music, movies all cause it)
tried to use Seatools for the Hard drive (A-ram 64gig SSD for the operating system) but not sure if it worked on the ssd.
Extended test failed immediately, normal test seemed to never complete, aborted after 6 hours.
tried using chkdsk /r at command prompt from dvd boot up instead, both the SSD and my other drive containing games and programs showed no issues with chkdsk.
tried windows memtest for a couple of hours initially but will run it longer overnight tonite, nothing showed up there from the brief test.
figured it was SSD corrupted anyway even though chkdsk showed nothing so tried a system image restore using macrium. no change to type and regularity of bsods.
Attached is the dump zip, hopefully its all there but so far 3 attempts to actually use the program linked by this forum has directly resulted in a BSOD halfway through the process.
nothing attached try this
We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
It is almost impossible to spot trends from a single DMP file so if you have m ore than one please upload them. If you only have one please wait until the computer crashes again then upload both.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.
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.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
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.
