Interesting idea. Right now I don't have a defective .iso file but I could probably create and burn one.

Sometimes I post additional links in case someone else finds this thread using Google. Too much information can't hurt.

Poor you... I'd be happy to trade you some of mine (j/k)


In the interest of never too much information, here's a couple of less than exact methods and not at all controlled forcing of Crashes ....

Run the built in Driver Verifier Tool and create a custom setting that forces everything to be logged - and then hope you have a bad driver....

Desktops / adjustable BIOS

Mess around with RAM timings... ( not so tight that the machine won't POST )

lower your vcore so the CPU is unstable...


Not exactly stellar advice, nor are they able to produce a crash on demand - but they have worked for me in the past - mostly in conjunction with not wanting a crash

SmartEyeBall,
System is too clean. Verifier won't bomb on me. Before I went on this binge, I had some crashes via verifier but I rectified that driver problem and I'm certainly not going backwards. This is a laptop. I don't want to shoot myself in the foot messing around with the bios settings. I'll leave that to the more adventurous.

Thanks,karl

Good People,
Am in a learning and testing phase and need to be able to easily and quickly force a crash. More specifically I need a minidump file from my computer.

All of these people getting unwanted crashes and I want to crash.

Thanks, Karl
