Hi all,
I am using Dell Inspiron 1525 from the past 3 years, but didn't had any issue of Blue Screen Crash much. But in past three days, the screen pops-up once a day that is quite annoying and puts me in a situation to find out what is the problem.

I was going through the earlier related posts in the forum.

So I Navigated to: C:\Windows\Minidump folder and found a .dmp file named Mini041811-01.dmp

But I am not permitted to attach the file to this post.

I read another post about the usage of BlueScreenView.exe

I followed the steps -
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.

Here is what it says -

Hope this helps for determining the issue.

Thanks and Regards.
