Hello Geoff and welcome to Seven Forums,

Unfortunately, there were no .dmp files in the jcgriff folder...

- Navigate to \Windows\Minidump
- Copy all of the dump from Minidump to an empty folder
- Zip up the folder to a .zip file
- Upload using the paperclip attachment.

Note   Note
If you are running CCleaner, make sure it doesn't remove the dump files.

I have looked a for these files, I can not find them. I have my settings to write an event to the system log as small memory dump to the default place "%SystemRoot%\Minidump but no file is there when I look for it.

I also have done a search for .dmp files and comes up empty

Any ideas? thanks for the response

Does the Minidump folder exist on your computer?

Do you have CCleaner installed on your computer like I asked?

The directory should be... %SystemRoot%\Minidump

Hi DeanP,

No, the folder doesn't exist.

Also, no I do not have CCleaner installed

Create a minidump folder and name it Minidump in C:\Windows
Get another BSOD and it should create in Minidump folder.

Thanks everyone for the help,

I made the folder named Minidump and then recreated the BSOD, when I rebooted there were still no .dmp files. The folder was empty. Any thoughts?

Still getting Blue Screen Stop Errors... there seems to be no .dmp or .mdpm anywhere.

using event viewer I found these errors in the Application part

"Error 2/3/2011 12:35:48 PM Microsoft-Windows-LoadPerf 3011 None Unloading the performance counter strings for service WmiApRpl (WmiApRpl) failed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the error code.
Error 2/3/2011 12:35:48 PM Microsoft-Windows-LoadPerf 3012 None The performance strings in the Performance registry value is corrupted when process Performance extension counter provider. The BaseIndex value from the Performance registry is the first DWORD in the Data section, LastCounter value is the second DWORD in the Data section, and LastHelp value is the third DWORD in the Data section."

And also from the System tab:

"Critical 2/3/2011 12:13:07 AM Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power 41 (63) The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

"Error 2/3/2011 12:13:20 AM EventLog 6008 None The previous system shutdown at 12:11:19 AM on ‎2/‎3/‎2011 was unexpected."

Any new help would be very helpful, thanks

***Edit*** Last BSOD I entered in Safe Mode with Networking and tried to install software but still crashed with the same code.
