Where have you looked for minidumps? Usually they are in C:|windows\minidump but in some 64 bit systems they are in c:\windows and are called memory.dmp.

Have you searched the entire HD for *.DMP?

It may just be that your system control panel is not set up for making a minidump. see pic. Yours should look like this

Ya, mine is set up like that. Right now I have automatically restart and overwrite any existing file on cause someone told me to set it up like that. But i have tried both ways, and I have tried the option with the 256 kb in the drop down. When I search for .dmp all that comes up is the $_WMIC_recoveros.

CHECKLIST

For dumps to be produced. . .

- Page file must be on OS drive (???)
- Page file base allocation size must be > than installed physical RAM (???) I have 1600 RAM 4 GB, 2 sticks dual channel.
- Windows Error Reporting (WER) system service should be set to MANUAL (???)
- Set page file to system managed, OS drive (???)

Set System Crash/ Recovery Settings to "Kernel Memory Dump" - this will produce. . .
--> a Full Kernel Memory Dump - c:\windows\memory.dmp
--> a Mini Kernel dump c:\windows\minidump (Both of these aren't being produced but this is the only thing I have looked at so far and changed) All the stuff above I don't know what it means or how to do it)
