    How to find and post your Minidump Files:

    My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

    It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don’t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don’t Zip each one individually.

    guess nothing we can do here since the minidump folder is empty

    This could be a strong sign that the issue is with your video card. It sounds like what is known as artifacting whereby either the card is over heating or it is dying. But at this point we can only guess based on the information you have given us.

    Do you have another card you can install (or borrow one) to see if this may be the case?
