    Post any new minidumps by going to C:\windows\minidump. Minidump files have a .dmp extension. Select all the .dmp files and right-click, sending the files to a compressed(zipped)folder. Upload that folder as a file here. This is a simpler way to post important minidumps

    That folder is empty.
    I have tried to create one with the Whoecrasched software (to find out if the settings were good. they are good)

    but no dumpfile created.

    Little update:

    I played SWTOR for 30 min and then it froze up with sound loop. there was no auto reboot so I did a hard reset.

    The first thing I did was looking for a minidump file ( you never know for sure till you look ) but none there.

    I did a lot of surfing / research on the web and I tried a lot of things. maybe making it even more complicated and/or worse...

    I have a Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 550Ti too... I live in Montana, USA. Have you opened the computers case and cleaned all the dust out and checked that all the fans are clean and running normally?

    Yes I looked. no dust buildup. only on the dust filter at the front.
    the fans are clean (I dont smoke anymore...:))

    Have you tried playing the games with the computers side off?

    Yes I did the last summer. but no effect.

    I have meters that look at the temperatures
    550 ti is now at 57C and the i5 is 40C

    I think I have found a reason why there is no minidump.
    there is not enough free disk space (I need 32gig for 16 gig ram)

    I report back in a hour.

    I use an i5 CPU too :)

    I have made some extra free space by uninstalling diablo 3 and gamespy.
    and ran system mechanic.

    and now I still dont have a crash to report and the fps in swtor is doubled.
    dont know why..

    what I dont understand is, that I made free space on the hd of 20 gig extra but now iam already down to a total of 30 gig free space.

    also when I play the game SWTOR I keep getting kicked out of the server because of a problem with my home network. this happens when an other person logs in. Then there is a possibility that I get an IP conflict.

    in attached file you can see an event viewer read out from this day

    Hello! I'm back :)

    I have tried a lot of things and in the end I was some kind of a computer nerd that was changing codes in regedit ^^

    the best part is... I did it!! I have killed all the errors, critical kernel problems and Internet hiccups.

    if there are people who want to know how I did it because they have the same problems... tell me and I will try to explain how I did it.

    one secret I can give you right away: READ! and don't do something you don't know what it will do. In a more positive way: Do the things that you know the outcome of.

    and thanks Tmagic660! for wanting to help me :)

    Some key-words related with my problems:

    • pc-meter
    • AVG / Spybot S&D / CCleaner / System Mechanic
    • nvidea
    • winring
    • dhcp (nack)
    • server 0.0.0.0
    • WLAN
    • wininit


    Ps. Back the SSD/HDD up! always!!
