We can analyze the minidumps if you make them available from the OneDrive or other
file
sharing sites (such as MediaFire). If you have problems uploading the minidumps copy
them to the Desktop or the Documents folder and upload them from there.

Also do this so you can see the likely bluescreens.

Windows Vista automatically restarts if your PC encounters an error that causes it to crash.

This is almost always a driver or something causing a driver failure or even an interaction
of two drivers. Have you added new hardware lately or updated drivers - also check in
Control Panel - Windows Updates to see if any drivers have been updated there.

Look in the Event Viewer to see if anything is reported about those.
http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vista/vista_event_viewer.htm

MyEventViewer - Free - a simple alternative to the standard event viewer of
Windows. TIP - Options - Advanced Filter allows you to see a time frame instead
of the whole file.

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/my_event_viewer.html


Here are some methods to possibly fix the blue screen issue. If you could give the Blue Screen
info that would help. Such as the BCC and the other 4 entries on the lower left. And any other
error information such as STOP codes and info such as IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and similar messages.

As examples :

BCCode: 116
BCP1: 87BC9510
BCP2: 8C013D80
BCP3: 00000000
BCP4: 00000002

or in this format :

Stop: 0x00000000 (oxoooooooo oxoooooooo oxooooooooo oxoooooooo)
tcpip.sys - Address 0x00000000 base at 0x000000000 DateStamp 0x000000000


This is an excellent tool for posting Blue Screen Error Information

death' crashes, and displays the information about all crashes in one table -

Many BlueScreens are caused by old or corrupted drivers, especially video drivers
however there are other causes.

You can do these in Safe Mode if needed or from Command Prompt from Vista DVD or
Recovery Options if your system has that installed by the maker.

You can try a System Restore back to a point before the problem started if there is one.

The log might give you the answer if there was a corrupted driver. (Does not
tell all the possible driver issues).

Also run CheckDisk so we can rule out corruption as much as possible.

Often updating drivers will help, usually Video, Sound, Network Card  (NIC), WiFi, 3rd party
keyboard and mouse, as well as other major device drivers.

Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.

Use BlueScreenView to see if there is a driver specified in the error message. Also check with
MyEventViewer at the time of the BlueScreen.

=====================================================


This is my generic how to for proper driver updates :

This utility makes it easy to see which versions are loaded : Run DriverView - set VIEW
to Hide Microsoft drivers - update those without Dump in their names. (Also update
the BIOS and chipset drivers.)

DriverView - Free - utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
description, version, product name, company that created the driver, and more.
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/driverview.html

For Drivers check System Maker as fallbacks and Device Maker's which are the most current.
Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - write down the make and complete model
of your video adapter - double click - Driver's tab - write down the version info. Now click UPdate
Driver (this may not do anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers) - then Right Click -
Uninstall - REBOOT this will refresh the driver stack.

Repeat that for Network - Network Card (NIC), Wifi, Sound, Mouse and Keyboard if 3rd party
with their own software and drivers and any other major device drivers you have.

Now go to System Maker's site (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (as rollback) and then Device
Maker's site (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI as examples) and get their latest versions. (Look for
BIOS, Chipset and software updates at System Maker's site while there.)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - Right Click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
each installation.

Always check in Device Manager - Drivers tab to be sure the version you are installing actually
shows up. This is because some drivers rollback before the latest is installed (sound drivers
particularly do this) so install a driver - reboot - check to be sure it is installed and repeat as
needed.

Repeat at Device Makers - BTW at Device Makers DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER - check manually
by model.

Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.

If you update drivers manually then it is a good idea to disable Driver Installations in Windows
Updates, this leaves Windows Updates ON however it will not install drivers which will usually be
older and cause issues. If Updates suggests a new driver then HIDE it (Right Click on it) and then
go look for new ones manually if you wish.

==========================================

Memory issues are NOT the usual cause for this Bug_Check.

Memory tests do not catch all errors such as mismatched memory (possible even for sticks
that appear to be identical) and when faster memory is placed in system behind slower memory.
So it is best to also swap sticks in and out to check for those even if all memory tests fail to show
a problem.

To test RAM check here - let it run 4+ hours or so.  <-- best method

For the Vista Memory Diagnostic Tool

Start - type in Search box ->  Memory - find Memory Diagnostics tool at top of list - Right Click -
RUN AS ADMIN follow the instructions
