Hello all. I am having an issue with a blue screen error that shuts down my system when i put it into sleep mode. I'll turn it back on and everything works fine, just comes up with the error saying an error occured...I hit more details and it shows the blue screen error. System is a Dell Inspiron E1505, Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32-bit
any thoughts are appreciated...its not anything that is keeping me from doing things..just a minor annoyance

2) Open 'C:\Windows\Minidump" directory and look for any files with a ".dmp" extension. Copy all of them to a temporary folder and zip it. Upload the zipped dump to any free file hosting site like "mediafire" and post the download link to it.
3) Download "bluescreen view" and create an html report with it. Download link and how to create an html report is described in the following link -
Unfortunately your system is configured not to write 'small memory dump' and hence BSOD collection app failed to collect dumps. Only dump available is a full memory dump which is several 100 megabytes big and pratically hard to upload for testing. Please do the following steps to enable small memory dumps which are usually below 1 MB.
Disable User Account Control
Go to Start and type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Startup and Recovery Settings button
Ensure that "Automatically restart" is unchecked
Under the Write Debugging Information header select "Small memory dump (64 kB)" in the dropdown box
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as "%systemroot%\Minidump" (without the quotes)
Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.
Once you enabled minidumps force the system to create BSOD by hibernating. More than one BSOD will be very useful in diagnosing the problem. Once you got BSOD copy them from "C:\Windows\Minidump" folder and upload. Hopefully you don't get permission error once disabled UAC.
To get information from already created "MEMORY.DMP" file located in "C:\Windows" :
