    You have to use Windbg, a free tool from MS, and symbol files, also from MS, to correctly read them. If you post 'em here, I'm sure someone'll have a look at them.

    The minidumps are made in "/Windows/Minidump"

    The dump posted refers to "Memory Corruption" as the problem. But with one dump, it is hard to sure. Post a few more in a zip file as an attachment.
    You should also check your RAM using Memtest.

    Hi mate.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions. You will find a link to the memtest programme.

    Regards Howard :)
