Lots of Bluescreens/Crashes lately. Please help!

I have only actually seen the bluescreen pop up about 2-3 times when my computer crashes. The other times; the screen freezes, the last sound is on repeat, and I have to shut it off by holding down the power button.

I'm confused as to how to find the dump files. I followed all of the steps on that page.

go into C:/Windows/Minidump and find the most recent files, then post them here.

The Minidump folder is empty.. I just did an error-checking scan. If that would delete these, then I will post them as soon as I crash again. Sorry

Check to make sure you have Windows configured to create the dump files.
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Use the Small Memory Dump option in Step 6. (Option One of the tutorial.)

Also check your pagefile size. If you have disabled the pagefile, dumps will not be created. You must have a pagefile size of at least 1M + dump file size.

No pagefile could also be the cause of your freezes.
