Which memory dump is required for BSOD assistance?

Hi,

I have (I think) read all the relevant info about BSOD posting, but I'm not clear on which of the Complete/Kernel/Mini memory dumps I need to configure my system to first?

Sorry if that's a really stupid question - any help much appreciated.

Thanks!

It's a Minidump, and then please follow - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Are you still experiencing BSODs? You can post them here in this thread.

It depends on the bug check code. For most of them, a limited analysis can be performed with a minidump. Configure the system to do a kernel dump. Minidumps are always created even if a bigger dump is configured.

0x101 (CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT) bugchecks cannot be analyzed with a minidump, because the thread that calls the bugcheck is merely detecting timeout on another processor core.

0x7F (UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP) with 8 (double fault) as the first parameter: unlikely analyzable with a minidump, because handling a double fault involves a stack switch (because it is most likely caused by a stack overflow).

Thanks muhahaa, if you are experiencing either of the above two, then you'll need to configure a Kernel Memory dump and then upload the file to a free cloud file sharing site such as SkyDrive or Dropbox.
