Windows 7: Random BSOD and memory dumps. Not sure of cause

Random BSOD and memory dumps. Not sure of cause

Hello,

Lately I have been getting random semi frequent BSODs which start the physical memory dump and sometimes automatically restart after it finishes and sometimes do not. I really am not sure what the cause could be for them. I have attached the file I was instructed to attach in the sticky. I've tried running sfc /scannow in the cmd prompt while using "Run as Administrator" but I only get "access is denied." I also tried using WhoCrashed to help find answers but it doesn't seem to find any crash reports. Thanks for all your help!

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup tool before you upload another zip.

I did just as it said. As seen in the photo. I have have a few more blue screens since then and have no crash dump file to show for it. What do I do now?

Have you merged the registry key? Do that only, and nothing else.

If still there is no crash bump, take a camera snap of teh next BSOD screen and let us see that. Probably the onscreen codes will provide some info there.

Hi

It crashed again and there is still no crash dump. It seems to crash every night if I leave my PC on when I sleep and I have to restart it in the morning. This time that it BSOD'd I got a photo on my phone like you said. I included it in the post. Thanks a lot for your help.

The photograph says that the dump recording is completed. The line before the last one.

I understand that, but when I go to look for the crash dump there is nothing to be found...

I have merged the registry key and made no other changes.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus. All means all, dont be selective at your own.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Then see if anything changes there.
