BSODs back, no dump file? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Just looked into C:Windows, and there is a DMP file. It's called Memory.DMP and it's 602MBs, however it's from 5/29. So it's an old BSOD. I just find this weird because it was previously putting/creating dump files in Minidump, but this time it didn't? So wouldn't that mean I already have a pagefile set up?

And yeah, I know. I just wish I had the dump file that way I could analyze it and get an answer. I ran Memtest on my sticks individually and both passed fine.

is your page file enabled? make a custom on enough for the memory dump to fit onto. 64k so make it 10mb or so

I think something is wrong with my memory... it WAS creating dump files, now it's not. Also my Firefox stops responding every so often.

Anyways, how would I go by checking out the page file settings?

right click on my computer->properties>advance->performance->Advance->Virtual memory
If you see a total there its enabled.

you can also go back to your memory dump settings and set a directory where to dump the file. Try any folder except the windows one. Try root.

Total paging size for all drives: 8172 MB/s is what it was set to. It was set to systemroot, I set it to Minidump.

test it. Use bluescreen viewer and click on the manual BSOD option. You'll get a BSOD. Then go back in windows check if you get one now
