    I have my Win7. Setup so it puts the Blue Screen Of Death Dump Files here %SystemRoot%memory.dmp

    I just had a BSOD and I Re Started the System.
    I go to my Start Menu and put in the Box %SystemRoot%memory.dmp

    I says Windows can not Find this File.

    Do I go to Even Viewer and what Catagory do I Click on Windows or what to get the %SystemRoot%memory.dmp

    Thanks.

    Look in your Windows folder. When you refer to %SystemRoot%, that means put it in the current Windows folder. For most computers, that is C:\Windows.

    Here's something to try. It's easier to read than the Event Viewer logs.
    Download Who Crashed from here https://www.resplendence.com/downloads
    Scroll down the page to Who Crashed and download it. Install it.
    Run the program and click on Analyze in the upper left corner.
    It'll give you some insight into what's causing the crashes.

    I am going to get the Program you Told me about.

    But I did Find the Folder in my Window Folder that says MiniDump.

    I go into it and ever File opens a Blanke White page in Notepate?
