    Whenever your computer "STOPS",Windows writes a minidump file,which records all the things happening just before the crash.

    This dump file type includes the following information:

    • The Stop message and its parameters and other data
    • A list of loaded drivers
    • The processor context (PRCB) for the processor that stopped
    • The process information and kernel context (EPROCESS) for the process that stopped
    • The process information and kernel context (ETHREAD) for the thread that stopped
    • The Kernel-mode call stack for the thread that stopped

    You can find your minidumps in the following directory. C:/windows/minidump

    Please read this HERE before posting them.
