This is Crashes and Debugging section.

The information included in a BSOD report contains system info to lead to the problems with hardware and software issues not exclusive to BSOD's.

It is called a BSOD report but actually it is a System Report.

The BSOD people can tell you where to put the folder. It has a specific spot it needs to be.

I don't have a clue where/how on a minidump folder if he needs to make one.

The issue is not a bsod.. that's all Im saying
I know because I had the problem before
That is also likely why there is no minidump
It's a graphics card problem

There is also one or more threads on the nvidia forums about these specific issues
But this particular one is one that cannot be fixed as far as I know, you could always try to make changes to power settings
Fair wanring when this happened to me I tried alot and it sometimes appeared to go away but came back at some point
All you can do since you can't get past this screen is reset the computer

Edit.. you do
Well Im not sure if you can fix this.. mine stopped doing it but that might be because I have 2 470's now and my newer model has a different partnumber and bios.. which is no certain bet tho
Yes my videocard is nvidia gtx 470.Why did you decide that this is the video card?

Because I have Asus P7P55D-E Evo with En GTX 470 and before I switched to SLI I had the blank blue screen frequently Actually I think there's one thread somewhere on here under graphics cards where I also replied
