No need to run it if it came back with no integrity violations.


Other software that could be causing conflicts is driver software.
  • An underlying driver may be incompatible\conflicting with your system. Run Driver Verifier to find any issues. To run Driver Verifier, do the following:
    a. Backup your system and user files
    b. Create a system restore point
    c. If you do not have a Windows 7 DVD, Create a system repair disc
    d. In Windows 7:
    • Click the Start Menu
    • Type verifier in Search programs and files (do not hit enter)
    • Right click verifier and click Run as administrator
    • Put a tick in Create custom settings (for code developers) and click next
    • Put a tick in Select individual settings from a full list and click next
    • Set up the individual settings as in the image and click next
      Attachment 210773
    • Put a tick in Select driver names from a list
    • Put a tick next to all non-Microsoft drivers.
    • Click Finish.
    • Restart your computer.

    If Windows cannot start in normal mode with driver verifier running, start in safe mode. If it cannot start in safe mode or normal mode, restore the system restore point using System Restore OPTION TWO.

    Thanks to zigzag3143 for contributing to the Verifier steps.
    If you are unable to start Windows with all drivers being verified or if the blue screen crashes fail to create .dmp files, run them in groups of 5 or 10 until you find a group that causes blue screen crashes and stores the blue screen .dmp files.
    The idea with Verifier is to cause the system to crash, so do the things you normally do that cause crashes. After you have a few crashes, upload the crash reports for us to take a look and try to find patterns.

    When you are ready to disable Verifier: Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click Command Prompt -> Run as administrator -> Type the following command and then Enter:
    verifier /reset
    -> Restart your computer.

so i did all that restarted the computer and got it to crash. however it did not generate a crash dump.

back when this first started a year or so ago it started as a blue screen and it did generate a minidump, then one day it turned into just a hard reset with no minidump. there is not mini dump folder any longer and i have tried all the guides to make sure i have it set up to generate minidumps.

any ideas?

Can you turn off the automatic restart and provide us with as much crash information as possible? See OPTION ONE, step 6. in Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD. The image shown in that step has automatically restart enabled. Uncheck the box to disable it.

so i set the computer to not auto restart, then of course it has not been crashing for the last 2 days. it just now finally crashed today and it restarted anyway, i made sure that the box is still unchecked, also there is still no dump file.

Was there a blue screen when it crashed, or did it restart without one?

It restarted without one. When it happens the screen is just instantly black and the computer has reset.

Yes, you need to recreate the minidump folder, navigate to c:\Windows and before creating a new one, just verify that the folder is not there. If there is no folder labelled "minidump" in the Windows folder, then you need to create a new one. Right click in an open area on the right window of the explorer pane. Then select new>folder. Label it as "Minidump"(without the quotes).

After creating the new folder, just to verify that minidumps are enabled, press the windows logo key and pause/break keys at the same time. Then select advanced system settings. Then, under the advanced tab, see startup and recovery? Select properties, under system failure, ensure that "write an event in the system log" is checked, under "write debugging information" "small memory dump" should be selected and the directory should be %SystemRoot%\Minidump. Click OK.

Its funny that you suggested that just now because I actually did just that last night. I dident know if it would do anything but I thought it was worth a try. thanks.

It does not seem like you are getting blue screen crashes, so I do not think minidump settings are the issue here. This is starting to seem like a hardware issue. You said you have already done stress tests on components. Go through the following hardware tests and perform any that you have not performed exactly as they are described in my steps.

warning   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.
