    Having gone through all the setting up processes, my system will not produce Minidump Files, an SCSI miniport is mentioned as part of the production process, yet I have searched my system and cannot find one. Assistance would be most appreciated.

    Some vendors suppy SCSI miniport drivers for support of SCSI devices (notably hard drives), in case they are needed. SCSI hard drives were common in server and workstation computers many years ago but not so much anymore; so chances are your computer doesn't have any SCSI hardware or you would know about it.

    The computer doesn't produce Minidump files unless it crashes, usually accompanied by a blue screen of death. In System Properties, Advanced tab, Startup and Recovery Settings, under System Failure there should be a check in the box next to Write an event to the system log, small memory dump should be selected, and the small dump directory should be %SystemRoot%\Minidump. Windows 7 is configured this way by default.

    I have done exactly what you have described in your response and still no minidump files can be found on my system after error 0x0000009F (driver failure) which occurs upon closing or hibernation. In one of the other forums it mentioned an involvement of an SCSI driver as being part of the minidump production process.
    I am trying to produce reports using a forced BSOD via a programme called Whocrashed to no avail. Can you or anyone tell me what is happening ? A paging file of more than adequate memory has been put in place and everything appears to be in order apart from the elusive minidump files.
