Try running the SF tool again and upload any dump files

I did a "Grab All". As far as I can tell, my computer still isn't making dump files (mini or otherwise) even with my settings set correctly to do so.

Thanks

I have to say that since taking out those two ram sticks, I've only had one BSOD and no programs crashing to desktop. The BSOD was when I was shutting down. I've had this problem before, but thought it was to do with my faulty ram. Maybe not?

It has been such a relief not having to be paranoid about losing work or dropping out of a conference call.

I still don't know why my computer isn't creating dump files. Any ideas on what might be causing BSODs as I shut down?

Cheers.

Its common for dumps to not always be created during hard crashes as the system just doesnt have the time or resources to write the info to disc not sure why you are getting none from multiple crahses, that is not so normal

Just to be certain redo small dump settings
