Windows 7: Can't Open MiniDump File

09 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 - Vista

Are you running Windbg at an elevated admin level (RIGHT-click on icon, "Run as Administrator")?

The SYM path looks fine to me.

If symbol errors persist, run the System File Checker/ Repair utility -
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select run as Administrator | type the following:

sfc /scannow
Upon completion re-boot to allow files in use to be repaired.

SFC general info - How to repair the operating system and how to restore the operating system configuration to an earlier point in time in Windows Vista

SFC & the CBS log - How to analyze the log file entries that the Microsoft Windows Resource Checker (SFC.exe) program generates in Windows Vista

Validate your Windows OS installation at the Microsoft Genuine Advantage site.

Doing sfc/scannow turns up no problems.
I know how to repair my system just don't want to unless absolutely have to.
SFC & the CBS log doesn't work for me.

When I go to the Microsoft Genuine Advantage site I get:

Windows validation was successful

Now you can take advantage of all the value genuine Windows provides, including extras!

please help with minidump file
My system crashed apparently because of an old wireless adapter. I have replaced it but want to make sure there are no other issues. There was something suggesting that an external hard drive used for backup (Lacie) might have done something too. Please help
