BSODs back, no dump file?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So I thought I solved my BSOD SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, but I just got another one after closing The Witcher 2.

I wanted to analyze it, but there's no dump file in the Minidump folder.

Any reason for it NOT writing a dump file?

I'm assuming you're using 7, but is this box checked?

Click Start -> Settings ->Control Panel .

Double-click System.

Click the Advanced tab -> Settings under Startup and Recovery .

In the Write debugging information list, -> Small memory dump (64k) .

To change the folder location for the small memory dump files, type a new path in the Dump File box (or in the Smalldump directory box, depending on your version of Windows) if you want to

That's what it looks like right now. Kernal Memory Dump was/is selected.

It's by default set to Windows/Minidump, it just never made a file... that's why I am kind of flabbergasted.

Also did a search for DMP files and it's not anywhere.

well just looking at your sig I think I found the answer. 8gb ram so 10 bucks I say your running without a pagefile. Am I right?

Beat me to it and it was my guess from the start.

If your page file is off, or smaller than your RAM, it doesn't have enough room to dump the complete copy to.

Crash dumps can also be found in C:\\Windows\\LiveKernelReports or you will also find a MEMORY.dmp file within C:\\Windows

If you aren't using a page file then that is likely the reason as to why you won't have any crash dumps. Windows needs a Page File size of at least 800MB in order to be able to dump the contents of the crash data after a critical error, that's what produces the crash dump files.

Regardless of how much RAM a system has you should always have a Page File set, and have the size set correctly with regards to your system configuration.

SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION errors are usually signs of a flaky driver or faulty RAM modules within the system.
