because when i BSOD'd, i immediately went to the windows/minidump folder and i found one dmp file there. following the instructions posted in this forum, i ran the BSOD Dump & System File Collection app, then the perfmon /report. I went back to the windows/minidump folder, and the one dmp file wasn't there anymore.
No it wasnt and there can be several reasons why.
For dumps to be produced. . .
▪ Page file must be on OS drive
▪ Page file base allocation size must be > than installed physical RAM
▪ Windows Error Reporting (WER) system service should be set to MANUAL
▪ Set page file to system managed, OS drive
Set System Crash/ Recovery Settings to "Kernel Memory Dump" - this will produce. . .
--> a Full Kernel Memory Dump - c:\windows\memory.dmp
--> a Mini Kernel dump c:\windows\minidump
The Full Kernel is overwritten each BSOD; a new mini kernel dump is created w/ different name for each BSOD
To check your system's "Recoveros" (Recovery) and Page File settings via Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), run the following -
HTML output - WMI - "Recoveros" and Page File Settings (HTML)
Text file output - WMI - "Recoveros" and Page File Settings (TEXT)
