I have a laptop that blue screens randomly. I came across the following information:
Don't install dumpchk. windbg is the offical tool to format the minidumps.
Debugging Tools from Microsoft
1) Create folder c:\symbols
2) Download and install the http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/installx86.mspx
3) Locate your latest memory.dmp file- C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini01
p or whatever
4) open a CMD prompt and cd\program files\debugging tools for windows\
5) type the following stuff:
c:\program files\debugging tools>kd -z C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini01
kd> .logopen c:\debuglog.txt
kd> .sympath srv*c:\symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
kd> .reload;!analyze -v;r;!thread;lmnt;.logclos
You now have a debuglog.txt in c:\, open it in notepad and post to this thread.
My problem is that there is no c:\program files\debugging tools directory on this PC. What am I missing?
