  • Hello,

    You should start with installing WinDbg, configure symbols as can be read in many tutorial (e.g. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff551063(v=VS.85).aspx)  and then open %WINDIR%\memory.dmp, run !analyze -v and send the output.

    Good luck!

  • If you want to analyse your own dump files. (C:\windows\Minidump).

    Download and install Debugging Tools for Windows
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/hh852363
    Install theWindows SDK but just choose the debugging tools.

    Create a folder called Symbols in C:\

    Start Windbg. File menu - Symbol File Path and enter
    srv*C:\symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

    Close and reopen WinDbg. File menu - Open Crash Dump

    This will analyse the crash dump. You need to close and reopen WinDbg for
    each dump file analysed. Because you are downloading symbols from the
    internet WinDbg will appear to be doing nothing. But it's downloading. Be
    patient.

    Type in theWinDbg command prompt

    !analyze -v

    -v stands for Verbose and if it's caused by a program it will appear in the
    middle of the listing.

  • To See if a Fix is Available

    In Control Panel (and select Classic view in the left hand pane) choose Problem Reports and Solutions (type problem in Start's search box), go to Problem History, right click your error and choose Check For Solution. You may also right click and choose Details for more info. Post those details here.

    To See if a Recent System Change Caused It

    In Control Panel (and select Classic view in the left hand pane) choose Administrative Tools then choose Reliability and Performance Monitor and choose Monitoring Tools then Reliability Monitor (type Reliability in search on Start) . This list is a chart of software installs, uninstalls, Windows updates, and crashes by date (scroll left to see earlier dates). See if your crashes started happening after you installed or uninstalled something.
