MiniDump files

  1. I've been trying to get my computer to run smoothly once again and i'm having problems with it now. Everytime i go to let my monitor turn off i come back after while and its turned back on but frozen on a black screen.

    I've got the last two minidump files it recorded and if someone could help me out with these then thanks a lot. I would have zipped these two files but it wouldn't let me without some type of error.

    Your first minidump (12/12/07-03) says this:

    Probably caused by: ntkrpamp.exe
    ntkrpamp.exe is a process associated with Microsoft® Windows® Operating System from Microsoft Corporation

    From here: (reply #3)
    I hope this helps :)


    The second dump (12/12/07-04) days this:
    Probably caused by: USBPORT.SYS
    I can't find info on this file but it is obviously to do with a USB controller, hub or port.

    Should i open my processes and look for ntkrpamp.exe this and close it? It has to be something faulty because i have nothing on my computer to run since i rebooted my entire system and everything was deleted. Its a dell E510 Dimension Desktop and i'm really starting to dislike dell.

    Thanks for reading the files.

    No problem, mate :)

    You shouldn't end that process because it is part of Windows.

    By rebooted, I take it you mean reformatted? Rebooting is just turning the PC off then on again ;) Reformatting is deleting all data and installing OS (Windows) again.

    If this has only happened after you reformatted then you should try a Windows Repair Install. Let me know if you'd like to do this and I'll provide you with links to instructions :)

    Please, that sounds great and sorry about that it was reformatted wasn't really thinking on that part. I'm out of ideas but the Windows Repair Install sounds good i'll give that a shot if you can link me up.

    Well, i finally got the computer rebooted and everything yet it still continues to mess up on me. I just recently got a BSOD that was just a blue screen no words on it. I had two minidump files that i was going to attach but after i got that solid blue screen it erased them.

    Ok, have you installed graphics drivers from the manufacturer's website for your graphics card?
