Go to computer properties, advanced Systen settings, at the bottom is startup and recovery, click on settings. It should look like this, including the dump location.

the Advanced Settings does indeed look exactly like that (Other than the particular OS you're using, mines simply Windows 7). Also, managed to get the SSD updated through a CD installation of Linux, but it sort of didn't need updating. The SSD went from a V2.22 to a V2.22, which is the current version, so I'm not sure about that.

Is V2.22 the most recent specified at the site?

Try un-checking the "Automatically Restart" box in the Startup and Recovery window. Sometimes this will restart the computer before the mini dump is written.

From your System Event Logs.
Several of these, confirming a possible SSD issue.

This usually indicates a CPU overheating.
Have you been checking your temperatures?
Use Real Temp , to check the CPU temps when at idle, under load and/or testing.
Let us know the minimum and maximum temps you get.

Also see a lot of failed Windows updates.
Did you get them to install?

Okay, I've unchecked Auto restart. I'm running Memtest now. I took the temperatures during a high load Min/max are 56 and 73 (I'll do another test for the temperatures at normal load after Memtest is done). Checked windows updates, there was one that hadn't updated, which has now been rectified. I'll return with an update after Memtest.

What PSU do you have?

My PSU is OCZ 550W. I've just finished running Memtest with 8 passes and no errors. Computer crashed on startup again, checked the minidump, but, again, no minidump was found. I also moved the SSD down to a lower leveled rack in the case itself, so it is directly in front of the fan and thus, hopefully, being cooled a bit better?

Normal temperatures run at 30 min and 44 max.

Have a look in your BIOS hardware monitor and see what voltages are listed for:
+3.3V
+5
+12V
They should be within 5% of those numbers.
I doubt that the SSD has any damaging heat, they usually produce no heat at all. There is the possibility of a bad SSD too though not common.

How do I look at the BIOS hardware monitor? Through setup on startup?
