I have been getting bluescreens every now and then, but when I use bluescreenview it only shows my dump files from 2012, 4 of them from Aug 11 to 13th.  Nothing more recent.  In my system properties -> advanced -> startup and recovery the folowing is selected:

Write event to system log

Automatically restart

write debig information kernel mempory dump

overwrite any exsting file.


What do I change to catch these so I can begin troubleshooting?
