How to read .dmp?

I've had several crashes and since I don't know how to read .dmp files I am in need of your help.
I've attached the whole minidump folder.
Minidump.zip

Install the Windows Debugging Tools and the correct Symbol files according to your crashed OS Version.

When started the command !analyze -v should point to to the right direction

Thanks for the quick reply! But if I read them in the way you instructed, will the result be like a direct problem/solution in simple english or will I get a bunch of codes which really mean nothing to me?

Maybe I should've been more accurate when posting my question...

I could follow instructions from windows and open the files, but that doesn't mean i can read them - as in understand what the information means.

Could you post a screenshot from what you see?

most dump files aren't in plain english anyway, halfway down the first link i gave you gives you a link to here - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315271/ which *may* give you more insight to the cause of the crash. have you tried the event logs for any more info? if it gives you causes you should be able to read them in plain english here - http://www.eventid.net/

Thanks for that, great tool!

I didn't use anything, I am starting to use blue screen view as suggested by Pete (thanks again), just noticed it points to the exact driver that caused the error.

I'll try fixing the drivers pointed out, if i fail at that I'll ask for help, but that will be in another topic.

The points go to Pete! Thank you all for your time and sorry again for not making things clear enough.
