  1. Hello people
    My buddy just called me to ask a question, I know i've seen the answer here
    but can't find

    apparently a neighbor kid was looking at one of those wonderfull
    pop pop pop pop pop pop pop up web sites

    This is a laptop for business running win home

    boot > bsod (to quick to read) > reboot
    system stuck in loop

    Computer will start in safe mode but notlast good config
    my advice was to change mini-dump to fullmem dmp (if not
    for debug purposes than at least to slow the blue screen down
    to read)

    my computer>properties>advanced>settings for startup and recovery>

    This did nothing
    i asked for a copy of tthe mini dump but there wasn't one

    It appears, what ever is wrong reboots before the bsod is recognized

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    thanks steyr223 :hotbounce

    Start in safe mode and then have a look in the event logs.

    You don't need a quick eye to view the content of blue screen. When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 or 1003 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump. Check system event 1001 and 1003 and it has the content of the blue screen.

    Event ID: 1001
    Source: Save Dump
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
    Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......

    Event Source: System Error
    Event Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003
    Error code 1000007f, parameter1 0000000d, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000

    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001/1003. Copy the content and paste it back here

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps to one zip file and attach it here. Techspot has an upper limit of 100K per attachment. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.

    hello thanks for the replys
    sorry i take so long

    went to court today to see my girl (in custody)
    wouldn't believe who sat next to me --- her old man
    we had lunch

    now i can spend a little more time here

    I had asked my friend to look up the newest file in the minidmp folder
    and there had not been one written for a few days

    so i believe it's rebooting before the event is written
    what is the order (before and after) of the writing a bsod event
