  1. so yeah, like the title says im looking to learn how to find out what exactly happened during a program crash or something not working. such as a videogame suddenly ending. but not nessisarily Blue screening or restarting the computer.

    thanks for the link. :) looking at the title it seems i need to be more clear. there is lots of info on this site aout what to do to debug a system crash.

    however im not sure what to do when a program crashes but the system is fine.

    in the link this info seemed pertinant to what im looking for.

    "You can use the .dump command from within Livekd to generate a memory image of a live system that you can analyze offline without stopping the system. This approach is useful when a system is exhibiting a problem, but is still delivering services, and you want to troubleshoot the problem without interrupting service. The resultant crash image isn't necessarily fully consistent because the contents of different regions of memory reflect different points in time, but it might contain information useful for an analysis."

    is there anything else i can do as well?
