  1. Hi.
    I need some help understanding a minidump file. My system just seems to spontaineoulsy reset frequently and i can't figure out why. I think it has something to do with a device driver but i can't work out which one.

    My memory has all tested fine.

    I hope some one out there can make heads or tails of this stuff.

    Here is a copy of the of the dump after i ran it through Debugger.

    Again many thanks for your help

    Very few people, can understand minidumps.

    That`s why cpc2004 is the forum guru.

    You can stop your computer from rebooting when there`s an error.

    Right click my computer, and select properties, then the advanced tab. Under startup and recovery, click settings. Untick the box that says automatically reboot. Click apply ok the required number of times, and restart your system.

    Now when your computer crashes, you should receive an error message(BSOD), telling you what caused the error.

    Pay particular attention to any drivers identified in the stop message.

    A list of Windows stop messages, can be found HERE

    Regards Howard :)
