My server suddenly restarted itself after a BSOD.  It created a minidump file (269kb) , but I do not know what software to use to read it.

Thanks for your help.

This Microsoft article should help you with this:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315263.   You can use a program called the Dump Check Utility, or you can use the Windows Debuffer (WinDbg.exe) tool.  

This video shows how to use the WinDbg utility:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSN_Qb2S7JQ

Hope this helps!

I downloaded the SDK and installed debugger.  It seems there is a problem with the symbols file:
