Vista- Locate crash reports
Vista Home Premium keeps crashing after popout relating to graphics.

I'd like to give more info but it belongs to a friend and I can't set it to repeat for me. So that I could at least get a screenshot of it.

Could someone tell me where to find report of crashes?
Thank you

You can find it in the Administrative Tools in the Control Panel or off the Start Menu. That is if you are talking about the event viewer.

C:\Windows\Minidumps

and

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\CrashDumps

If you have a full memory dump, it will be C:\Windows\memory.dmp
