Now why can't these have useful information for the layman to look at. I've got a machine that will run perfectly for weeks and then suddenly reboot. Yup got a nice dump file but no other information of use.
I've now turned off the reboot option and hopefully I'll get a Blue screen with some useful information that I maybe be able to work with.
One thing I do know it ain't the memory.

Even the blue screen seldom gives any useful info. Thanks, MS. :rolleyes:

I just tell it to reboot and not give any dump info.
If it starts to reboot often, then i disable the reboot automatically option.

I rather it not reboot at all. Last night it did it when I minimised the wintv program. Now I think the previous time it rebooted I may have been using wintv but the time before that I dunno.
