    Hi there,

    1) Just to clarify, when I followed the instructions " Select Start > Right click on "Computer" and select "Properties" select "Advanced System Settings" then "Advanced" tab. From the "Start up and Recovery" section select "settings""

    the default file was: %SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP and not "%SystemRoot%\Minidump". So let me know if the memory.dmp file should be replace by the minidump file?

    2) Also another separate issue is that every time I open up a google chrome tab in the browser there is a blue flash along the top which wasn't happening before. Any cause for concern?

    Thanks for your help

    Yes I want to see the minidumps via BlueScreenViewer, not the Kernel memory dump.... BSV will identify the driver that caused the BSOD for us

    Download this program Blue Screen Viewer and unzip "Bluescreen View.exe" to your desktop.

    Next, Select Start > Right click on "Computer" and select "Properties" select "Advanced System Settings" then "Advanced" tab. From the "Start up and Recovery" section select "settings" make sure the default folder is "%SystemRoot%\Minidump".

    When you select "Settings" in the "Start up and Recovery section" the window will look as follows:

    Hit the drop down as shown above. The window will be seen as follows:


    [​IMG]


    Change the default to mini dump as shown above. The window will be seen as follows:


    [​IMG]


    Click on OK to confirm the change as below:

    Go back to your desktop and double click on BluescreenViewer to run it, if there is any info available the program will grab the most recent. Choose save from the Toolbar and copy paste to your next reply. If there is no information available try and re-create the BSOD and try again with the tool to collect the information.

    Regarding Chrome, I don`t use that browser so am not exactly sure what you mean or what is happening. Try re-installing the browser, see if that helps

    That is Atheros network adapter driver. See if you can get an updated driver from the Manf. web site
