Missing C:\Windows\Minidump\122513-59685-01.dmp


probably dump file was deleted or dump file creation was interrupted , reason for a missing file or an empty file name.Another file of the same nature may be created again if the same blue screen message appears again for the same problem.

How to View Windows Minidump Files


First of all, you need to configure Windows to save these important log files. Most of the time, this is already done automatically, however follow these steps to make sure these log files are being saved.

1) Click on Start

2) Right-click on My Computer

3) Click on Properties


4) In Windows XP , click on the Advanced tab. In Windows Vista , click on the Advanced System Systems option on the left side of the screen.


5) Under Startup and Recovery, Click on the Setting button

6) Under the System Failure section, you'll see the options for the memory dump file. Write an event to the system log should be checked along with Send an Administrative Alert. The debugging information should be set to the Small Memory dump (64K) and generally the Small Dump Directory is set to %SystemRoot%\Minidump. In most cases this is the C:\Windows\Minidump directory.

As far as the third check box is concerned, if this is checked the computer will automatically restart when a blue screen error message is encountered. So, if your computer is booting into Windows, then rebooting automatically most likely you are getting some sort of blue screen error message and its forcing the computer to restart. If you uncheck this box, then the message itself will appear so you can retrieve important details about the error.

Download and Installing the Debugging Tools to Read Minidump Files

In order to view the Minidump files, you have to download the following tools.

Debugging Tools for Windows including WinDbg

Although most of the time its not necessary, you can download the Symbol packages as well as the Debugging Tools so you can read the Minidump logs easier. Once you've downloaded the Debugging Tools for the correct version of Windows and installed them, open the WinDbg program by following these steps.

1) Click on Start
2) Click on All Programs
3) Click on Debugging Tools for Windows group
4) Click on WinDbg to open

The screen should look similar to the one below.

Deciphering the Minidump Files

In the WinDbg program, click on File, then click on Open Crash Dump

Browse to the following directory on your hard drive and open a minidump log. The drive letter will be whichever drive you installed Windows on. In most cases, this is drive C.

C:\Windows\Minidump

After you open a minidump file in WinDbg, scroll to the bottom of the file. You should see a line that says Probably caused by:, followed by a filename. This is the problem file. In my case the file was related to the ELock Program in the Acer Empowering Technology set of tools. I simply uninstalled this program from the computer and the blue screen and problem went away.

Probably caused by : eLock2FSCTLDriver.sys ( eLock2FSCTLDriver+11332 )

Although you may not recognize the file that is causing the problem, it definitely helps in tracking down a solution for the blue screen error message and resolving the issues.

I get blue screens often when trying to install software. Solution suggests that BIOS should be updated but I have already done this to version 3.15


please clarify what the blue screen stop errors are if you have ANY usb devices plugged in that could be it. if you are trying to install via a usb dvd drive try installing it to a different usb. also go to start,run type msconfig and shut off anything under start up that is not needed then reboot. also try installing in safe mode. after bios boot hit f8. please let me know if this helps! contact me back with the stop error if it doesnt.

hello

you're experiencing a hardware crash caused by insufficient cooling perhaps.

C:\Windows\Minidump are always hardware problems in absence of very specific reasons to think otherwise. check your memory module(s) -- they may be the cause, especially if you're overclocking the CPU -- that's a bad idea if you are . If the machine is insufficiently cooled, that could cause problems under load - such as when you're playing graphically intensive games.

are you running on AMD CPU ? -- if so , it could have insufficient cooling (ie: heatsink and fan , try applying thermal grease on heatsink.

go to this link and review some of the blog information -- i think you have a CPU and/or memory module issue.

I received a bluescreen with message turn off


It sounds like you have a virus.

try and start the computer in Safe Mode just hit your reset button and then Press F5 before windoze starts.

select "Start Safe Mode with Networking"

Update your antivirus program and Try to run another antivirus scan.

If that doesnt work, you need to do this........When Windows crashes, it writes a system event 1001 and a minidump to the folder\
\windows\minidump Check system event 1001 and it has the content of the blue screen

Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001.

Copy the content and email it to me at clb199@yahoo.com

pls rate 4 stars




short of that, you are going to have to
