Find Blue Screen Of Death Error Information

by Rohit Khurana on October 12, 2011


Some times while working on our computer we get BSOD(Blue Screen of Death). Whenever this happens you cannot do anything except for shutting down the computer and restarting it again. In case you the files will get corrupt the system will not restart again and you will have to reformat it. But if your computer opens up you can scan the files which were created due to the BSOD crashes. I have got  a tool named BlueScreenView which will help you to find out the reason for the crash. The application will read the dump file and will show you the information like date, time, bug check code, bug check string, file description, version, product, company and other information regarding the crash.

though my laptop (win 7 basic – 64 bit with 4 gb ram) is configured to create dump files, it is not creating the same in the c:\windows\minidump folder nor anywhere else. I am having Stop Error F4 every 4/5 days. I installed Whocrashed and BlueScreenView programmes but to no avail.
