Hey guys, so basically, I've been using this desktop computer for about 3 years now, and I've gotten several BSOD's in the 3 years that I've had it. I've noticed over the last several months though that when I occassionally get a BSOD now, there's no dump file created after for me to look at. I used the program called BSOD viewer in order to see what the problem is, but unfortunately, I haven't been able to see any new dump files since MARCH that tells me what the errors are. (I've probably had around 6 BSOD's in that time frame since then)

 

I've seen threads where people give you instructions on what to do to make sure the dump file is created, so I changed the system failure settings to create a 256 KB minidump file, and magically enough, I got another BSOD about an hour later, but still no file created. I'm trying to figure out if this is a driver related thing or software based, so I could use some help. Do I need to delete the old mini dump files to make room for new ones? Or any other suggestions?

Are you using Ccleaner or a comparable application?  The default settings for it deletes dump files...deeming such "nonessential".

I have ccleaner on my computer, but I haven't used it for like a couple of years now. I just uninstalled it, should that fix the issue do you think?
