Windows 7: BSOD report shows 3 problems

Hi
I read the tutorial, I didn't find any kind of "dump file" mini or otherwise. The "how to create one" link is not working. I ran a search and this is what it fed me.
Let me know if it's what you need.

Seems your system is not configured to generate mini dumps

Followed the instruction, hopefully this will show the dump.

I have my external drive disconnected. There was a firmware and software update on both. I think the driver that it was looking for is either the new one or the older version?? I may wipe that drive clean and see if I can just start over with it. If I erase it, will it keep the new updates?

Still no dumps, either this means your computer is not BSOD'ing or still not set to generate mini dumps

Hi
No I'm not getting a BSOD. It was suggested in a different section of the forum that I run these test, zip em up, and send them to this forum for a look see.


I looked again to make sure my setting were the same (hadn't changed themselves). The other setting on the debugging was a "Kernel dump"??? I did notice that instead of the "Small memory dump (64 kB)" the setting on mine is for 124kB???

The only potential case for a BSOD not creating a .dmp file (other than an F4 where a critical system process crashes - this can happen) is that the paging file is not configured on the same drive as \Windows and is not set to at least the size of RAM+50MB or so (for overhead in generating the .dmp file). If you leave your system to let Windows manage it, that's fine for performance but potentially bad for creating .dmp files. I'd suggest, at least for testing, you configure it to be on the \Windows volume manually (usually C: ), and set the initial and max sizes manually to be RAM+50MB - for example, if you have 4GB of RAM, you'd configure both initial and max to be 4146 (4096+50).

That's exactly what I'm running 4 GB. How do I get to where I configure that? I found system configuration, but I don't think this is what you mean. According to this I have a a paging file and a dump file????

No need - your system is configured properly. If it's not creating dump files or writing out administrative events to the logs, something is amiss. However, I went back and re-read all of your posts, and I don't see any indication of you seeinng a BSOD - I see indications you're having disk errors (of course), but no indications your system is crashing. Is it actually crashing?

Nope not crashing, just trying to get the thing runnig right before I run my first backup. No point in backing up somthing that doesn't work right.
