  1. so this is the problem...

    one day there was a power outage and my computer shut down (unexpected shutdown just turned into a black screen) and after that i tried starting my computer and win 7 was either giving me a BSOD at login or when freezing up also it has been running slower than usual (freezes and etc) and safe mode runs just fine
    before the power outage it was running fine (regular not safe mode)

    cant attach minidumps :( gives me this

    Since your system only works in Safe Mode this a strong indication the issue is with drivers. Do the following so you can produce smaller minidump files:

    1. Right click My Computer > click Properties > click Advance tab

    2. The Advance Screen at the bottom right has Error Reporting. Click this on.

    3. Click Enabled error reporting and also check both boxes underneath: Windows operating system and Programs.

    4. Now click Choose Programs and click All Programs. Then click Okay and that screen will close. At the next screen click Okay and that will close.

    5. You are back to the Advance screen. Find the Start up and Recovery which has underneath it System startup, system failure, and debugging information. Click the Settings box.

    6. Another screen will open. You want the System failure section. Enable all three boxes.

    7. Under these boxes is Write debugging information. Choose the option Small memory dump (64kb). Click OK and that screen will close.

    8. Click OK one more time and you'll be finished. Now the ability for your system to write minidumps should be enabled.
