Can anyone decode a minidump for me?

By Alski ·
I have tried to install the secret decoder ring with all the command line stuff. Symbols are always a problem. Can I just email this to someone (it's only 100k) and see what is going on with this PC? I appreciate it.

You will have good luck for the next 7 days and possibly win the lottery (you have to buy a ticket) if you do this.

Operating System are you running. Include it when you PM me. I will have a look for you. I could do with some good luck even if for only seven days.

Chuck it my way in a Peermail and I'll apply some Scottish brew to it!

Instructions on using Windbg.

Open Windbg and select file, Symbol file path and brows to the Symbol folder that you have downloaded and installed Symbols to, select OK.
Close the workpage and save the Workspace information. This should lock in the Symbol path.
Open Windbg and select file and select Open Crash Dump then navigate to the minidump, highlight it and select Open.
There are two ways to use !analyze -v the easiest is to click on !analyze -v under Bugcheck Analysis.
When you have ran the initial dump if you look to the bottom of the screen you will see kd> to the right of that type in !analyze -v and press the Enter key.
Ctrl + a will let you copy the information and paste it into notepad.

Look to the bottom of the page for information like this. This was fixed by updating the Graphics Drivers.

WinDbg is a lot easier to use than the old way. But it still has some traps for the unwary. If you dont save the workspace you have to reload the Symbols Folder.
