  1. Hi,

    I have experience a BSOD twice in a row on my PC as well as 3-4 times during past 2 months. This troubles me as usually it means that troubles are just getting started.

    Can anyone please help me understand the cause of these issues?

    Attached are the minidump files (had to change to .txt to be able to upload) for these 2 crashes.

    Observations:
    - During these 2 crashes I have been doing some extensive downloads as well as copying files to the flash drive at the same time
    - During previous crashes I recall having some downloads running.

    If some more information is needed please let me know.

    Thanks in advance

    Try posting the minidumps themselves by going to C:\windows\minidump. Minidump files have a .dmp extension. Select all the .dmp files. Right-click sending the files to a compressed(zipped)folder. Upload that folder as a file here

    Hmmm I've attached those minidumps with a simple rename to .txt. I can't possibly imagine how this would've broken them.

    The .txt files are not readable. Try attaching them the way I suggested
