Windows 7: PC Freeze Diagnostics

10 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 64bit

Dump files are located in %SystemRoot%\Minidump you could check to see if you have any currently in there.
So how do you get to "%SystemRoot%\Minidump" ?

Or, does this not yet exist on my computer and I have to create it?

The folder will only be present if your system is set to write small mini dump files during BSOD.
How do you know if it is?
Start->Run->"sysdm.cpl"->Advanced->Startup and Recovery
Found this on a tech board...

I went to C:\windows\minidump and it's not there, so I went to Start->Run->"sysdm.cpl"->Advanced->Startup and Recovery... and it shows %SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP

Am I supposed to change MEMORY.DMP to minidump ?
