Windows 7: Frequent BSODs, various types, can't set system to save Minidump

19 Apr 2020   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64

So... that's all the help I can hope to find here ? Sorry but it's a bit frustrating... It's only the third time I try to request some insightful suggestions to try to solve these issues, providing as much input as I can think of and getting very little in terms of solid, informed, specific, relevant replies, while the whole situation hasn't improved one bit... Is there yet another forum I could try ?

Could you put a current zip file containing crash dumps and informations about your computer?

Could you put a current zip file containing crash dumps and informations about your computer?
As I explained in the first post (and as I indicated in the title of this thread) I can't set the system to save crash dumps, each time I try I get the same warning saying that the swap file is disabled or has a size below 1MB, which is NOT TRUE (swap file is set to "managed by the system" on the C: partition, with a current size of 1643MB) :


I couldn't find the original warning message in english, which would have helped to look for a solution.
I do have a few xxx.dmp files in the "Minidump" folder, but the most recent one is from 20190616 so they're almost a year old (I don't know why it worked for a few days, and then stopped working again).

The corresponding error messages (the times noted below correspond to the time when I made a backup of my Firefox profile, usually right after the crash but not always) :
20190608 15:50 "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT"
20190610 23:08 "PAGEFAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" / win32k.sys
20190613 15:00 ntfs.sys (I noted that it happened when I plugged a HDD through a USB bridge)
20190617 04:02 "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT"
(Strangely no backup made on 20190616 around 23:00 / 11:00 PM)

As for informations about my computer, I think that I provided enough in the first post, what else should I mention ?

Error messages for the latest crashes :
20200416 01:27 "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT"
20200416 20:20 no specific message
20200418 03:34 raspptp.sys / “an attempt was made to execute to non-executable memory”
=> I hadn't had that one yet
20200419 05:51 "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT"
20200420 02:12 "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT"

One month and not one single clue, not one single actual answer to any question I asked... What did I do wrong ? Again, is there a forum which is known to be more active than this one on that kind of topic ?
