Windows 7: Recurring BSOD with no known trigger, no dump files created

Recurring BSOD with no known trigger, no dump files created

I've been getting BSODs recently, not related to the use of any specific software. I've tried and tried again but I cannot find any kernel, mini, or full memory dump files. I've followed the sevenforums guide and have triggered BSODs using CrashOnCtrlScroll and PowerShell. The blue screen shows that the memory dump is complete but I can not find the file.

The BSODs started after a few things happened:

1) I deleted Windows.old, a 200GB folder I was holding onto after updating the OS
2) I ran ASUS AISuite 5-way optimization which OC'd my processor a little. However I later reversed these changes (see below)
3) A bad USB hub caused corrosion to the jack of my USB headset. Not knowing about the corrosion I plugged the device into a several USB ports, gunking them up a little with orange slime. I have attempted to clean the device and the ports but the BSODs still occur. Maybe I need to clean them more?

After running the AISuite optimization I got a couple BSODs that did not restart the computer or initiate the memory dump (the processor wasn't getting enough power probably.) I reversed the changes and stopped getting BSODs of this kind.

I really want to get to the bottom of this but I can't seem to do much without being able to access dump files. I have attached the report from the dm log collector as well as screenshots of how my settings are configured.

out of these three things, it is most likely the USB hub, however, i will need dump files to know for sure, your dump files should be in C:\Windows\Minidump.

I have checked Minidump and system root for MEMORY.DMP, and have found nothing for kernel, small, and full memory dumps.

try the instructions here and see if you get something. sure it's for XP but it should be the same basic idea.

Hmm, check if you have dumps enabled. Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Snap a picture when the BSOD occurs.
