Crash Dump failure?

Hello to all,
I am attempting to run down some recurring Administrative Event Errors, can you please assist in identifying them and the problem?

Attachment 86647

This usually comes in a pair. One immediately following the first.
I appreciate any assistance you can give.

Its a new day here, so Good day,
Is there anything I've left out like more specific information to help someone with more knowledge than I, to troubleshoot this issue?

Are you experiencing any performance issues, or are you just curious... any BSOD issues??

Howdy Tews,
Thanks for replying. I am a newbie to Windows 7. I recently was show the Event Viewer\Administrative Event errors. So with that understood, I would like to know what it is and why it isn't working for information and also to stop the Event Errors.
Anything else you need, just ask. I appreciate any information you can pass on.

1) One reason could be that writing events to the system log is not enabled. Go to Control Panel-System-Advanced System settings-Advanced Tab-Startup and Recovery-Settings tab-System failure. There, make sure the box "Write an event to system log" is checked.

2) But hey, just a bit of friendly advice. The event viewer is full of events- good, bad and neutral. In addition, it is a troubleshooting tool. So basically one needs to peer into it only if some actual problems are experienced.

Morning Bill2,
Thanks as always for your valuable advice. I've never had a harder time with a OS before, so I am a bit leery. I've found some that I could explain, like ATI display faulting when the screen goes off after 15 minutes. I am basically looking at frequently recurring Administrative Event Errors. Took a while but got rid of a recurrent SASCore failure, due to Windows uninstaller and Revo Free's inability to totally clean, apparently 64 bit programs.
A problem I may be causing myself is that with Advanced SystemCare Pro and doing disk cleanups there are options such as Per user archived Windows Error Reports and System archive Windows Error Reports and Setup Logs, which I had previously been deleting. Also a I've cleaned up system files. Since I don't really know what they are, they may be a part of the issue??
I will certainly check your idea.
Thanks

Good Day Bill2,
I tried your advice and the problem still lingered. As of this morning after a miserable drop in my Reliability Index, I've noted since I've started the computer up, is 2 consecutive volmgr Source "Crash Dump Initialization Failures" 3 times since 5AM. Also atikmdag Source "CPLIB :: General - Invalid Parameter, followed b a atikmdag Source "Display is not active" Error Task Category: DAL. This also has occurred 3 times since 5AM, it is now here 7AM.
I remember that you said that they do not necessarily indicate a problem but these seem regular and I have some concern.
Thanks for any assistance to All!

Yo Bill2,
Actually I already did. I updated from ATI the latest drivers for the graphics. Since that time I have no more atikmdag errors. I also updated my mobo to the latest.
Since before the mobo upgrade and continuing still I am getting solely those Crash Dump Failures. Only at a greater frequency.
Now with respect, what? Any ideas are appreciated as before. I am indebted to many members of this forum.

Do a few standard things:

1) Update all your drivers.

2) Run a malware scan with malwarebytes antimalware, its a free download.

3) Run CCleaner, both regular and registry.

4) Defrag

now, dont look at the event viewer for a week, and see how your machine performs.

let us know.
