I have several PCs which are blue screening in my environment.  I cannot determine the cause of the BSOD, but I have collected the minidump from each machine.  Is there anyway I can analyze them or do I need Microsoft to assist?

I don't want to pay for a tool so that Nirsoft product looks useful but does it give any further analysis to the cause?

Yes it does.

As it's free just install it and see what it can do. I haven't needed to use many of its more esoteric features, as ordinarily enough information is provided by the initial views of the minidump to get an idea of what's going wrong.
