MINIDUMPS time to collect data?

Had a crash about 5 to 10 minutes after boot. How long does it take to collect the data for a minidump on a 600GB dual Core?

In other words when after a crash , is it safe to turn ? I cannot locate the latest minidump!

Hi rundwald,

Please check if the system is configured to 'create mini dump'. You may want to refer to the following 'Microsoft article': How to read the small memory dump files that Windows creates for debugging

You may re-start the computer and enter the 'on-board diagnostic environment' to scan the system for any 'hardware issues'. For steps on 'diagnostics; you may find the following 'Dell article' useful:

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions; would be glad to assist.
