Ah, sorry, read the system specs and not the original post. I see a lot of network related problems; what antivirus are you running?

Also, http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html might help to alleviate some of my confusion.

the problem is lve been unable to find any way to get it to create a memory dump.. it keeps on failing on creating one.. l would have grabbed one otherwise..

lm wondering if l should try putting in a direct folder location to see if that changes the failed minidump as it provides me one of the codes l posted in my last note of the issue.

The crash reports still may be useful. They log which crashes occur sometimes even if a .dmp file is not created. It is not the best information, but it can help with some debugging steps.

lve decided to run the tool to see what it comes up with, l just got the error (or notification) which l cant replecate regarding the paging when editing the dump settings (this didnt happen the last time after l visited the section)

basically it states windows might not be able to record details to help identify issues because the paging file is diabled or less than 1meg.

according to my settings it states:
Minimum allowed is: 16mb
recommended is: 4500mb
currently allocated: 3000

paging file is currently system managed (drive size is 285gb tho l dont think that matters).

however though l havent found any minidumps l'll provide the logs the tool does in the hopes it leads to possibilities and with regards to paging files.. it would be useful to know why lm suddenly getting the above notification about the paging file settings saying something about being disabled or less than 1meg.. originally it was set to manage all drives by some kinda tick box but since l only have one drive l just set it to system managed (tho this was after the problems lve been getting in the hopes that refreshing paging file settings might resolve my intermittent random Bsods but there is a possibility it might have something to do with them.

(l will note that my settings with regards to the minidump dir match what was stated before, tho it notes they fail to create annoyingly tho the current notification l got upon saving those settings when double checking was noting the paging file)

It sounds to me like your Windows installation is not working as it should. Despite the fact that sfc /scannow came back with no errors, there seems to be some Windows files that are not behaving properly. I would suggest a Repair Install to resolve the pagefile issue.

I do not see any of your bugchecks in the logs. I think the best step right now is the repair install to see if it resolves the crashes, and if not, hopefully it at least resolves the crash report generation problems so we can determine the cause.

its a fresh install.. not even a month old, however the stranger part is the reason l reinstalled was because l received the exact same BSOD error the only things that have been installed are mouse drivers and webcam drivers (tho l do occasionally connect a X360USB PRO which is a usb tool for xbox modding but that driver isnt exactly active 90% of the time) apart from that its just the usual software (office, firefox, skype, etc and windows updates) and there is much less of it this time round.

Let's take a look at the paging file settings: Start Menu -> Right click Computer -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings link -> Performance click Settings... -> Advanced tab -> Under virtual memory, click Change... -> Upload a screenshot of those settings.
