Hmm am just wondering if ruthless should run that memtest - could be something out of whack there - just a guess/thought.

I wouldn't advice to configure complete memory dump, it is extremely large (10GB+) and most of it is user mode stuff.
In user mode, the executing code has no ability to directly access hardware or reference memory. Code running in user mode must delegate to system APIs to access hardware or memory. Due to the protection afforded by this sort of isolation, crashes in user mode are always recoverable. Most of the code running on your computer will execute in user mode.

In short words and simplified, a complete memory dump is unnecessary to configure with bluescreens because user mode can't ever cause a crash.

I would suggest to configure dumps to max kernel dump, it doesn't contain anything of user mode and is max 1GB.

Yeah but he says that even if he configures max kernel dump, nothing is created upon crash.

That could be caused by other things too, like the pagefile size not properly configured or the Windows Error Reporting service isn't set to manual startup.

Please check following:
1. In the advanced options where you can edit the startup and recovery settings, please click on the settings of the performance and click on advanced tab in the pop-up.
What is the size of the virtual memory? It should be at least the size of your physical memory.

2. Please search "services.msc" (without quotes) and search for the service 'Windows Error Reporting Service'.
If the startup type is NOT manual, right click the service > properties and change the startup type to manual.

Okay, I ran memtest for at least 8 passes, nothing. I havent had a BSOD since the post, but I still dont know why I dont get a beep code anymore during startup, 1 beep means everythings fine right [For AMI BIOS]? As far as the virtual memory, it is around 12gb, and the 'Windows Error Reporting Service' is already set to manual. I updated my network drivers and video drivers, so maybe thats it? I dont know, the BSOD have been random, so I am not sure if I fixed whats going on.

Ok if the memtest came up nothing then I am guessing it is ok and I would not be particularly worried about the beep on boot up. Sounds like whatever you have done since has as you say fixed something so just wait a nd see what happens and you know where we are if things go south again.
