Hi first time poster. Have followed the instructions in the minidump instructions and I keep getting the following random error. Event Type: Information Event Source: Save Dump Event Category: None Event ID: 1000 Date: 16/04/2008 Time: 18:01:35 User: N/A Computer: STUDY Description: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000008e (0x80000003, 0x804e3586, 0xf0f2bac0, 0x00000000). A full dump was not saved. It appears to be on shutdown but I never see the BSOD. I had a problem with the machine randomly rebooting which turned out to be the reset switch had gone almost closed circuit (100 ohms) so I disconnected that. Since then I have been getting the 0x08e error - anyone help with my mini dump ?
