  1. Hello All,
    My computer has been having a recent series of crashes. In searching through the web I came across this site and was hoping for some tips in analyzing my minidump files.

    I have gone through the usual memtest thing as well as the general steps for troubleshooting. I keep my computer fairly clean and have re-installed windows over the past week or two.

    I have been unable to figure out the culprit of which driver it is that is causing this issues. My system was otherwise working perfectly before being wiped clean and formatted. I would appreciate any help that you guys could give.

    thanks in advance.

    Your minidumps are showing image and memory corruption. Swap out you memory modules if you have more than one. Run a memory test and see if that finds a problem, sometimes the memory test doesn't catch the faulty memory.
    You might need to get new memory.

    thanks for the quick reply. I think I will put on an exhaustive memory test over night.

    My motherboard is a DFI lanparty so luckily it has memtest in the bios which I can boot to.

    I will report back if I make any progress.

    Alright, I left memtest running over night and when I woke up, it hadnt listed any problems though I suppose it doesnt save the data from each individual iteration?

    Either way, I had two other modules that I have replaced into my computer to see if it fixes the issue.
