Blue Screen but no Dump File

    Question

  • I receive Blue Screens but no Dump Files are created. Why?


    Technical Information:

    *** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x8512B990, 0x8512BB04, 0x805FB02E)


    Nothing more.

     

    I have set the system to create dumps:

     

    Control Panel ----> System ---> Advanced ----> 'Startup and Recovery' ----> Settings ----> System Failure:

     

    Write Debugging Information: Complete Memory Dump

    Backup file: %SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP

     

    I made the size of the pagefile on C:\ according to what is written under 'Complete Memory Dump' in the help 'Debugging Tools for Windows':

     

    'This dump file requires a pagefile on your boot drive that is at least as large as your main system memory: it should be able to hold a file whose size equals your entire RAM plus one megabyte.'

     

    The entire RAM is 1024 MB and the Pagefile is 4000 MB.

     

    I installed WinDbg and made it the postmortem debugger with Run "C:\Programme\Debugging Tools for Windows (x86)\windbg.exe" -I

    I know which service (and therefore which programme) is causing the Blue Screens.
    I would need the Dump File because otherwise the support can not help me anymore.

    Any idea what I could do?

  • Now I know respectively at least I believe to know why at that Blue Screen STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x8512B990, 0x8512BB04, 0x805FB02E) there is no Dump File written.

    At Microsoft I found:

    Windows feature lets you generate a memory dump file by using the keyboard

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244139/EN-US/

    SUMMARY

    Windows includes a feature that you can use to cause the system to stop responding and to generate a memory dump file (Memory.dmp). When you do this, you receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:

    *** STOP: 0x000000E2 (0x00000000,0x00000000,0x00000000,0x00000000)
    The end-user manually generated the crashdump.

    After you enable the feature, you can generate a memory dump file by holding down the right CTRL key and pressing the SCROLL LOCK key two times. The feature is available for both PS/2 and universal serial bus (USB) keyboards. PS/2 keyboards use the i8042prt.sys driver that is included with the keyboard. However, for USB keyboards you must install a hotfix for the Kbdhid.sys driver. For more information about this hotfix, see the "Windows Server 2003 resolution" subsection at the end of the "More Information" section.


    These were my further steps:

    I started that Service which is responsible for that
    Blue Screen STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x8512B990, 0x8512BB04, 0x805FB02E) but did not wait until that Blue Screen came, but earlier as close as possible to the end started the manual Blue Screen with
    holding down the right CTRL key and pressing the SCROLL LOCK key two times thus a Dump File was written.

    This was possible. Now I have at least a Dump File close to that Blue Screen.

    I tried to come closer and closer to the end of that Blue Screen but I found out that if I wait too long than even with the manual Blue Screen there is no more Dump File written simple because the Computer is frozen after showing the Blue Screen.


    According to my understanding there is no Dump File written at that Blue Screen STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x8512B990, 0x8512BB04, 0x805FB02E) because the Computer is frozen after showing the Blue Screen.

    Bug Check 0xF4: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION

    Msot likely some driver is orrupting memory; and this error is just misleading.

     

    Control Panel -> System -> Advanced system Settings ->Advanced -> Settings -> Under "Write debugging information" -> Select "Small memory dump" .

    • Enable verifier by running the below from a command prompt (administrator)

           verifier /all /flags 0xfb

    • Restart the system
    • If  a bugcheck occurs, note down the parameters mentioned in the screen
    • if you get any dump file (%SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP)

    verifier /reset

    run from a command prompt will bring you back to your original state; i.e.disables verifier

    Control Panel ----> System ---> Advanced ----> 'Startup and Recovery' ----> Settings ----> System Failure:

     

    Write Debugging Information: Complete Memory Dump

    Backup file: D:\\MEMORY.DMP

    Control Panel ----> System ---> Advanced ----> 'Startup and Recovery' ----> Settings ----> System Failure:

    ...............................

    change the location to something other than system root.

    eg. you ca n  change it to D: or E:

  • I changed it from %systemroot%\MEMORY.DMP

    to

    D:\MEMORY.DMP (which did not help with the issue Blue Screen but no Dump File)

    and received the following warning:

    If the pagefile on drive C: has a starting size of less than 1023 MB, than the system probably can not save debugging information, if a 'STOP'-error happens. Do you want to continue?
