  1. They dont stay there long enough for me to read them. Are they stored in a file on the computer? I need to read them!

    The root cause maybe faulty ram or faulty device driver. I have to examine the stack trace of your minidump in order to find out the culprit.
    When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 or 1003 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump. Check system event 1001 and 1003 and it has the content of the blue screen.

    Event ID: 1001
    Source: Save Dump
    Description:
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
    Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......


    Event Source: System Error
    Event Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003
    Description:
    Error code 1000007f, parameter1 0000000d, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000

    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001/1003. Copy the content and paste it back here

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps to one zip file and attach them here. Techspot has a upper limit of 100K per attachment.

    You don't have to read the minidump. Attach the minidumps and system event log 1001/1003 here.
