  • Best way to understand minidump files

    Hello all,
    I know how to access and read the minidump files, but I have no idea what to do with the information after, friends have suggested me to copy and paste the error message at the end of the dump file to Google, it helps sometimes, but A. I don't think that it's what Microsoft meant for when it created the minidump files, and B. I had a case where I had different dump files and all of them had different errors which led to different directions from Google.

    Can anyone please advice regarding what should I do after I read the dump files to troubleshoot and pin point the issue that is causing the blue screens to appear?

    Thank you all.

    Almost all opportunities I had so far to play with dump files were solved by the driver that was after the sentence: Probably caused by :. Except one or two, whose results were not conclusive.
    Try to see if anything from these searches helps:
    - interpret minidump (check the first site)...
    - understand minidump
