Can someone help me analyse these minidump files?  This is an HP z200 which blue screens at random, but usually when the user unlocks the workstation.
Thanks

5 of the dumps relate to NTFS.SYS and iaStor.sys, I would run a diagnostics check of the hard drive.

Are there any programs you'd recommend running for the diag of the HDD?

It looks like there is a HP diag CD for the z200 here:

You should be able to burn the ISO and then boot from it.  One of the tests should be able to scan the hard drive for errors.

When I checked the PC for the diag results, it had been restarted.  I'll rerun the test & let you know what I find.
