  • Question

  • I need help trying to figure out what's happening, I just reformatted my computer for a fresh install, far as I know I have the current drivers.  I had something like this before, which was my ARES Video being bad and taking a shit when it got to around 55 C.  Seems to be happening like before with vid card being bad but wasn't doing until I reformatted.  Not sure if a driver for the like the PCI slot or Vid Card or something else.  I just installed a new SSD little before had which was working fine.

  • It may help to look at the minidump files from the crashes with a debugger.

    Can you zip up the minidump files in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder and make available (provide link) via Windows Live SkyDrive or similar site?

    The following link has information on using Windows Live SkyDrive:

    If you have problems zipping the minidump files copy the minidump files to another location such as a folder on the Desktop

    Also, you do not necessarily have to zip up the minidump files, you can upload them one at a time.

  • Parameter 4 is just the memory addressed.  Without the dmp file it will be difficult to impossible to troubleshoot this.

    Event ID 41 Source 63 is simply the previous shutdown was unexpected.  As Auggy correctly says we need the DMP files or event viewer log.

    Please provide us with your Event Viewer administrative logs by following these steps:


    Click Start Menu
    Type eventvwr into Search programs and files (do not hit enter)
    Right click eventvwr.exe and click Run as administrator
    Expand Custom Views
    Click Administrative Events
    Right click Administrative Events
    Save all Events in Custom View As...
    Save them in a folder where you will remember which folder and save as Errors.evtx
    Go to where you saved Errors.evtx
    Right click Errors.evtx -> send to -> compressed (zipped) folder
    Upload the .zip file here (if you can) to skydrive or a file sharing service
