I think I know why it didn't work this time, normally everything isn't reacting anymore but this time, I was still able to speak to my Buds in teamspeak so it is more like a hang, gonna try to crash it now lol.

Thanks for the additional info.

Be sure to uninstall any programs that you absolutely do not need to help fault-isolate.

Update: At the last two times it was a bit different: I was still able to hear and talk in Teamspeak AND instead of some random colored pixels I now see just one colour and no pixel. But via the search function I searched for the Minidump folder and found these 3 files from the last days: Oh lol when I try to Upload them I get: You don't have permission to open this file. Contact the file owner or an administrator to obtain permission. Aswell i got to say that the Minidump folder wasnt in %systemroot% I just found it because I searched for it.

go to an elevated command prompt and enter:
wmic recoveros get /all /format:list > %userprofile%\desktop\dmpinfo.txt

that will put a file called dmpinfo.txt on your desktop.

Attach that file to your next post.

from that dmpinfo.txt file:
MiniDumpDirectory=%SystemRoot%\Minidump
ExpandedMiniDumpDirectory=C:\Windows\Minidump

That indicates that if you go to an elevated command prompt you should find a c:\windows\minidump.

Go To an Elevated Command Prompt


Elevated command prompt = Run CMD.EXE as administrator

WIN | type CMD.EXE | do not hit Enter |
in the PROGRAMS list, right-click on CMD.EXE |
choose "Run as administrator" |

Click on the YES button (if such appears)

WIN key = key with Microsoft log on top

for the guru:
WIN | type CMD.EXE | CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER key combo | ALT+Y keycombo


============================================
==============================================

Once at an elevate command promt, type:
CD %systemroot%\minidump
Dir

Post back what you see.

Excellent!.


Did you know that you can copy text from a cmd shell screen to the clipboard?

I really should have said:
DIR | Clip

that | Clip will put the output of the command line to the clipboard.

You can then use good ol' CTRL + V to paste from the clipboard into your post.
==================================================

Since you do have some dump files, although the last one was three days ago, then I suggest you start a thread in the BSOD and Crashes forum of SevenForums. Imperative is to follow the instructions there about how to post. The info is at the top when you go to the forum.
