It is much easier to find patterns, etc, when there are more than one crash.

We prefer you wait until you have at least two so that if one is corrupt the other probably wont be.

Suggest you also do a System File Check {Option 2.}

Read the Tutorial carefully.
Let us know the results at the end.

Re the mini DMP's...



We do need the 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.

If you are overclocking STOP

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.

The procedure:
Quote:
* 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:
Quote:
* 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.

if you have your system set to automatically reboot on crashes and you have no chance to properly read the error message you can use something like this Blue screen of death (STOP error) information in dump files.

Two ways we can go here. we can try to track down the misbehaving driver or we can do a clean install which probably would be faster.

Your call

Obviously I would rather find the driver if that is what it is. If I need to re-install I will. That sounds a little radical for a driver issue.

Most recent crash dated 3/3 was caused by memory corruption. Still an un-named driver.

Audio Playing too fast in OneNote
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate on VM Fusion (Mac User) with Office 2010 installed. When I record audio on OneNote and then play it back, the playback speed is faster than normal, probably twice as fast. I have tried playing other audio files in Windows and it works just fine. Please help!
