I think ive added all the Info that was Requested to assist me with my Issue, I can play games with No issues but whenever i try to play a Online Video or today i noticed that DVDs played via my player are BSOD'ing me also. Its not the typical Blue screen that i remember from back in the 98/xp days, The Screen is completely Blue.. No Errors Given and the only option is to Hard Boot the System. Thanks in Advance for any and All help.

No DMPs included in the upload. Try this method.
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.

Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.


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.

I followed your instructions on setting up the System to Write the minidump files but i cant seem to find them on my Harddrive... It was set to write them to %SystemRoot%\Minidump . I even tried to load a youtube video for a fresh dump.

I searched for .dmp files and the only thing that came up was:


AutoReboot=TRUE

DebugInfoType=2
Description=
ExpandedDebugFilePath=C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP
ExpandedMiniDumpDirectory=C:\Windows\Minidump
KernelDumpOnly=FALSE
MiniDumpDirectory=%SystemRoot%\Minidump
Name=Microsoft Windows 7 Professional |C:\Windows|\Device\Harddisk1\Partition1
OverwriteExistingDebugFile=TRUE
SendAdminAlert=FALSE
SettingID=
WriteDebugInfo=TRUE
WriteToSystemLog=TRUE

The Above file was written "Prior" to me changing the way my system logged minidump files.

Well... I never could find the Mini Dumps in the Windows folder but after doing some googling i did find people that had similar problems and when they disabled "Hardware Acceleration" in Adobe Flash it fixed there issue. As of "Now" ive been to numerous sites where i was having problems and havent had any blue screens.

Fingers Crossed X.
