Hi all,
I have come across the forum and found that there are numerous cases for BSOD or Blue Screen Of Death and i am proposing a proper way below to handle those issue.

Below are some of my guide that can be use by BSOD victims to seek for assistant here. I will try my best to debug the file and give comment on reason of BSOD to the victims as best as i could. Hopefully, admin and mods will pinned this thread for reference of others.


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

The next time around the BSOD occured, a minidump file will be created.
