New Dell Notebook Blue screen + reboot (Memory Dump)

Hi

We have a brand new notebook one of 4 that were given to a group of users (Dell model V130). It has Windows 7 Pro 64bit  + Office 2007

This notebook has randomly rebooted 2 twice now. There is not much in the event viewer. These 2 event have occurred before the reboot.

Event ID:      7022
Description: The Security Center service hung on starting.

Event ID:      7022
Description: The Windows Font Cache Service service hung on starting.

(We have not check the memory of the notebook just yet will leave as a last point of call.)

It is a little hard to replicate, but PowerPoint  has been open both times, if its related or not I can not tell.

If someone has come across this before I would appreciate any light that can be shed on this.

 Kind regards

Chris

Have you run all the updates for Office 2007?  Could be a bug with PPT.  Use Microsoft Update and install all updates.

Don't you get the blue screen? If so, what is the error code?  You can post the error code here as it will help the experts in isolating the issue.  

If your machine restarts before you can see the blue screen information, then you have to Disable Automatic Restart on System Error (You can google to find the steps if not sure).  Once you get the blue screen and error code, either google it or post it here.

Unfortunately both times we have not gotten the blue screen code. Like the idea of Disable Automatic Restart on System Error. Will give that a try.

- Yes all products are up-to-date.

Powerpoint 2007 is very sensitive to the printer driver. If you do not have a LOCAL default driver try adding the Microsoft XPS printer as default see if that helps. If it does you might want to look for an update for any current printer.

Upload the .dmp files located in windows folder for analysis.

Hi All

Thank you all for taking the time to post unfortunately we did not get down the root of the issue. We rebuilt it being a brand new machine if it happens again we will send back to supplier, just get another unit.

Thanks again

Regards

Chris

We looked through the system logs and did a .dmp file analysis, which was not consistent from each system crash. (So we postulating that it is memory related)

by the way Experts-Exchange has a limit on uploads of 50mb and I cba to split 740mb worth of memory dump.

We did not have time to explorer this properly so we opted out for the easy solution.

Did not know about the mini dump, learnt something new.
