    If you have installed any new hardware, then remove it and check whether that resolves the issue.

    Have you tried 'Last Known Good Configuration'?

    I have made no changes whatsoever in the past 3 months.

    Searching the microsoft site for this issue turns up no results :(

    Do you have any mini dump files that we can debug?


    Least we may be able to narrow it down :).

    Yes have noticed that microsoft aren't very helpful on this one

    Thanks for your help.

    These are the only 2 dump files contained in that folder.

    Just looked at them now, both dumps look to be driver related.

    Do you have a Razer mouse by any chance? Seem to be caused by dadder.sys which is apparently a mouse driver.

    Try updating your mouse drivers :)
