Darn...I saved them as bmp files. I'll switch them around. How many do you want? From the earliest point of the problem or the latest ones? Do you want one from the other section showing problems with the media center scheduler?

Hi there,
If you do not mind, i can help to troubleshoot your Blue Screen error and let you know what actually causes your Blue Screen. It might not be very accurate, but at least, it might help you to know the problem.

Please follow below instruction in order for me to get information from your system and your log file


Please upload your minidump folder here and i will help you to debug and let you know the reason for BSOD.

Looking for minidump file

Go to My Computer and locate C:\Windows\Minidump or C:\Minidump. Once you have the minidump folder, please zipped the whole folder and upload it here (using add attachement function) or other web hosting page mentioned below. Please provide the link to download your file.


No minidump file available!!!How??
Do the following if you did not find your minidump file

(Window XP)
  • Right click at My Computer
  • Go to Properties
  • Look at Advanced tab then go for Startup and Recovery
  • Look at Settings and untick Automatic Restart
  • Make sure that write debugging information is Small Memory Dump (64kb)

(Window Vista)
  • Right click at My Computer
  • Go to Properties
  • Look at Advanced System Properties tab then go for Startup and Recovery
  • Look at Settings and untick Automatic Restart
  • Make sure that write debugging information is Small Memory Dump (64kb)

Thanks

The photos on the desktop in jpg will not upload even though they have been selected. Do I need to change a setting or something?

Hopefully these two shots will make it to you. I'll keep working on the other 3 for a total of five.

one of them is caused by your HP printer software...I personally bought 2 HP multi function printers...1 for me and 1 for my son for his business...gave us both fits ( by both of us I really mean me because I had to remotely fix his as well as doing mine)...HP's software was/is so buggy I was ready to pitch it into the trash...took about 3 weeks and about 10 fixes before it/they started working properly without causing me or him grief...I will never buy or recommend a HP printer to anyone ever again... :) ...
this is the sugar coated version..if this wasn't a family kind of site I would use swear words that would make sailors cry...marines wince and would probably make paratroopers raise a eyebrow...ok maybe not the paratroopers but I'm sure they would be impressed... :(
their driver software package is 700 MB's...
what the..... :) :) :) :) :) :)
with that said...
now use the device manager and check for any yellow ! or red X's

There are no yellow or red xs in the device manager. Several weeks ago the desktop had to go in for repair and while gone we continued to use the laptop which then took over as the head honcho. The desktop came back and I had to disable the vote button on the laptop and I still had a hard time installing the HP printer. If this is the case I'll switch it over to another older printer that we still have or better yet Ill through the HP into the lake.

what for.... and what did they do...


as for printers I've had great /easy time with Epson printers...
you can also try getting updated software/drivers for the HP printer...
if it turns out it is the hp software causing the bluescreens (it was for both me and my sons )you can uninstall it and use your other printer..

Ill try reinstalling the drivers. I still have the disk to install for the HP. Does this change anything about the thumb drive or should I still consider it corrupt. The user advised me that she never took it out according to procedure but just ejected it.
