Windows 7: Minidump not working

11 May 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1, Windows 8.1 Pro x64, Windows 10 Pro x64

I have always found that a clean install is best. At least you know where you are starting from.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Full Retail SP1

I wholeheartedly agree. The story was, I wanted to extend the life of my previous computer, so I got a better processor and a better video card. Got the CPU, worked fine. Got the card, it covered up all my other PCI slots (that meant no sound card and no wireless network adapter card). OK, new mobo. Got new mobo, needed different memory (DDR3 instead of DDR2). Finally said 'to hell with it', got a new case, power supply, memory. Took the HDDs and DVD drives from old case, built the thing. memory wasn't compatible with mobo (even tho Intel said it was) mobo doesn't like double sided memory. Went to staples, got single sided memory, thing finally boots. In the mean time I had obtained Win7 and by that time I was so sick of screwing with all of this i got lazy and upgraded instead of a clean install. The rest of my troubles are documented in several threads here (first, the machine would just stone lock up, power off to cure). That problem was cured by another new mobo (now I can use ALL the RAM). BSODs since then. The machine has been running for 3 days now without a hiccup. Sorry about the long winded rant, I've never had so much trouble with a PC in my life. All better now though.
