Windows 7: Cannot open .DMP file

Cannot open .DMP file

I recently had a BSOD and after the computer rebooted i tried to open the .DMP(uning Notepad or Wordpad) file from C:\Windows\Minidump but when I double-right-clicked it it said "Access denied!".I'm confused about that I'm the admin and it doesn't let me open that file.

You need the debugging tools to open a .dmp file,

Download and Install Debugging Tools for Windows

You might be better off just following this,

Once you have opened the dump file with WinDbg, you will then need to know which extensions and commands do what and what the information they provide means. WinDbg is much more complex than using something BlueScreenView, which at best gives a simple stack and a probably caused line, which I find to be misinterpreted by many people as being the actual problem.

I used Windows Debugging Tools and after a few hours of reading and trying to understand I managed to find out that the BSOD was caused by an error betwen my Wireless Keyboard and my PC.

P.S:I still don't know why...
