Hey guys,

My computer has been randomly giving me the BSOD and I'm not sure exactly why... The weird thing is though, no matter what I try, I can't make my machine create the dump file for you guys to read. The best I can offer you guys is a photo of my BSOD if that helps at all. It usually crashes when the machine is not in use. For example, I can use it for hours! But I go upstairs for 30min-1hr and I come back to a BSOD.

I have attached my photo of the BSOD, if it helps.

EDIT: Also, I have tried updating as many of my drivers as possible. It still does this.
EDIT again: I have it set to create a small dump, under the filepath %systemroot%\Minidump

Thank you guys so much!

Hello have you tried Bluescreen view?

Download BLUESCREENVIEW and install and run it to read the dump files created by windows.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Yup, my computer doesn't create the dump file so there is nothing to select and convert to text. As you can see in the image, the file creation fails :(

We can try anothter method.


Would you please tell me which antivirus applications you have had previously on this machine any and all.The reason I ask is because some like to hang around after you uninstall via add remove programs and require the use of removal tools.




What kind of computer do you have exactly??Example Compaq presario c700


Download CCLEANER


Just DONT us the registry cleaner function of CCleaner unless you know what you are deleting exactly!!

Then open ccleaner hit the tools button then startup second one down below uninstall then in the bottom right hand corner of ccleaner hit save to text file.Save it to your desktop and post the startup.txt here in your next reply.


Hit the start button in lower left hand corner. Then in the run box type msconfig, then hit the services tab then put a check mark in hide microsoft services what is listed there,after hiding microsoft services?Please post back to us in a vertical list.

Please download MINITOOLBOX When the box opens click save file, save it to the desktop and run it.





Checkmark the following boxes:


Flush Dns
List Installed Programs
List Users, Partitions and Memory size
Click Go and post the result.





PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND POST ALL INFORMATION REQUESTED!! :)

I want to make one thing very clear DO NOT use the registry cleaner function of ccleaner!!
