Hi UniGaming16,

Welcome to the 7forums.

There are a few different crashes
  • BSOD crash
  • Sudden shutdown/restart crash
  • Freeze crash
Why there no dump files are created is because your problem is NOT a BSOD crash.
You likely need to create a new thread at the Performance and Maintenance section for this.
