Windows 7: BSOD

28 Jul 2010   #1

Windows 7 64-bit

Hi folks,

I built a new PC last week, my main build, and lo and behold i've had a BSOD once a day every day since... the OS is Win 7 64-bit, and I've checked the memory using a USB version of Memtest which I ran overnight and it recorded no errors. The system runs beautifully other than these strange BSDs that occur roughly every 30 hours...

It hasn't given me a mini dump file the last two times, but I have one from 3 days ago I want to actually read myself but when I try to run KD from a prompt I receive the following:

Your debugger is not using the correct symbols

In order for this command to work properly, your symbol path
must point to .pdb files that have full type information.

Certain .pdb files (such as the public OS symbols) do not
contain the required information. Contact the group that
provided you with these symbols if you need this command to

Type referenced: nt!_KPRCB

But then it does show this at the end of the above message:

Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe ( nt+70600 )

Now looking at some of the other .dmp file readings here I should be seeing alot more information, right? So I was wondering if someone could confirm which version of the symbols (with URL if possible) I need to be able to read my minidump... failing that I will post it up here, but would like to be able to read it myself first.
