Please check {windows partition}\windows\minidump and check if there are any recent dump files saved.
Please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files How to configure minidump | Windows 7 tutorial




Random crashes at night while it's supposed to be sleeping Diagnostics Test Random crashes at night while it's supposed to be sleeping
 System File Check

Please try following:
  • Open an admin command prompt
  • Copy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
  • When it finished reboot your system
  • Open again an admin command prompt
  • Enter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation", please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

Ok, I followed this precisely and both times it said "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation".

Select them, copy to zip and upload the zip
You can't upload a .dmp directly because of its extension.
