Hi. . .
There s/b mini kernel memory dump files left behind by the BSODs. If you gather them and some system info, I will gladly process the dumps to see what clues they hold.
The dumps s/b in \windows\munidump and have names similar to Mini110508-01.dmp - but you will need to copy them out to your documents folder before zipping them. Also, please run the following system reports as I will need system & driver
information while going through the dump files:
Perfmon (Vista system health report):
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | RIGHT-click on cmd.exe above | select Run as Administrator | the cmd/DOS screen will appear - type the following:
It will take 60 seconds to run and the output will appear in an IE7 browser. Please save as an HTM or HTML file - you'll see the default file extension when you go to save it (click on Page - top-right IE7 screen, save as, save file).
START | type msinfo32 & hit enter - save it as an NFO file (default)
Bring up an elevated command/"DOS" prompt -
START | type cmd.exe | right-click on cmd.exe above - under Programs | select Run as admin - copy/paste the two commands = 1 at a time into the DOS screen (to paste into DOS screen, right-click at top of DOS screen, select Edit, select paste - then hit enter if need be):
driverquery /v > %temp%\drivers1.txt
driverquery /si >> %temp%\drivers1.txt & start notepad %temp%\drivers1.txt
These 2 must be executed from the elevated admin cmd/DOS prompt as I described. When you paste the first in & hit enter, it may appear to hang momentarily - it is just gathereing information. When the 1st completes, enter the 2nd immediately. When it finishes, a notepad will appear withe the output of the 2 commands. Save it as a text file.
Zip up the perfmon HTM/L, minidumps, msinfo32 NFO file and the driver
query text file and attach to your next post.
Any ? - please let me know.
