My laptop is an HP ProBook 4525s running Windows 7 Pro.
It recently refused to shutdown properly.

I tried to attach the dmp file but it seems it will not upload correctly

I have attached the error message .  
What can you tell me about this error?

Thank you for your help.

Make sure your settings are so that you don't get full memory dumps, but rather are minidumps. Then allow for at least 3 BSOD's, zip the resulting minidumps, and attach the zip file.

you don't need to zip the dmps - just attach them as file (below- left of the comment box)

in the mean time, run Ram and disk diags to be sure about the basics (make the cd on a working PC)
Download the UBCD, make the cd, and boot from it
Here 2 links, one to the general site, and a direct link to the download
since the downloaded file is an ISO file, you need to use an ISO burning tool
if you don't have that software, install cdburnerXP : http://cdburnerxp.se/
 
For ram testing - run memtest86+ at least 1 full pass,  - you should have NO errors!
 
For disk Diagnostics run the disk diag for your disk brand (eg seagate diag for seagate drive)  from the HDD section - long diag !

It's better to zip them, as then you only have to attach one file, and we also only have to download one file. That makes it much easier to handle for all of us.

You just have to double click on the download and the zip file opens automatically in normal circumstances. It's much easier. With dump files, if I click on them in a browser, it tries to open it directly instead of downloading it. So I have to remember to right click it and use a "save as", and that as many times as there are dump files.
