    The useless answer is easy: it's doing memory dumps because it's crashing.

    Why is it crashing? With the right technical tools and know-how, you can probably isolate exactly which component/driver is causing the blue screen.

    As a guess, it's the video card, either a hardware or driver issue, or in concert. Try updating the driver. Try switching between the video card and the onboard video (pull the video card).

    I found 4 drivers that needed updating including the motherboard and video card. I can't believe that the computer store would waste 4 days of their time with out checking these. [​IMG] I will see how it works now for a few days.

    Keeping drivers up to date is usually the key.

    One other thing to check. If the computer doesn't have a temperature monitor, install SpeedFan and keep an eye on the CPU and GPU temps. Overheating hardware can also lead to these types of BSODs.

    I called the shop this morning. They want to format and start over. [​IMG]
