  • Hi,

    We need the minidump file for further troubleshoot:

    1. Click "Start", input "SYSDM.CPL" (without quotation marks) in the Search Bar and press Enter.
    2. Click the "Advanced" tab and click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery".
    3. Under "Write debugging information" section, make sure the "Small Memory Dump (64KB)" option is selected.
    4. Check if "%SystemRoot%\Minidump" is in the "Small Dump Directory" open box.

    Please refer to the following steps to collect memory dump files:

    1. Please click Start, type "%SystemRoot%\Minidump" (without quotation marks) in the Search Bar.
    2. Go to your Desktop, right-click on it and create a new folder named "Dump".
    3. Copy all the memory dump files (looks like Mini052009-01.dmp) in Minidump to this folder.
    4. Right-click on the Dump folder, click "Send To", and click "Compressed (zipped) Folder".

    You can upload the collected files to SkyDrive, and let me know the URL by replying this thread. For detailed steps on how to upload files with SkyDrive, please refer to:
