Placou, what files did you upload? I don't think these are the files that were required. You had to upload the minidump files with .dmp extension.

OK, I will try to explain it this time.

Go to this location:

C:\Windows\Minidump\

There will be minidump files with .dmp extension, as you had posted in your first post. Select the two latest files, which can be seen by noticing the date which is integrated in the filename. For e.g., Mini090513-01.dmp indicates it was created on 09.05.13.

Select the two latest files, and zip them into a single zip file, and upload that zip file on Dropbox.

my ignorance, i was following the tutorial to learn about dropbox, and i was drag and dropping local meta data folder, and thats what i sent.

i located the minidump folder, between microsoft.NET and modem logs. when i click the folder it shows 0 files.

i went to windows vista site to read about minidump files and it seems many others have experienced the same trouble, and can not locate or no file(s) had been generated.

i was there only to educate myself a bit, i did not download any of the offered "fix,s", nor did i try locating using SYSDM.CPL, as suggested to one person.

i feel bad for bothering you and im embarrassed with my ability now that i have read the many different reasons a dump file might not be generated, after reading some of the reasons i found info that the files may be hidden ?, there was no more elaboration about hidden data past that

You may have to turn on the setting to show hidden files and folders. See these links:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...windows-vista/

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tuto...windows-vista/

In addition to that, you can also uncheck the checkbox for "Hide protected operating system files", to show system files.

Then try to locate the minidump folder under Windows again.

If it's not there, look for a file called memory.dmp in Windows folder.

After you locate these files, you can again change the settings back to as they were before, so that you or anyone does not mess around with the system or hidden files.

im very confident i followed the clear directions as per links provided, the empty minidump folder is all that windows contains, and under its properties it says it was created 8-4-13.

i also looked for memory.dmp and it is not there either.

Oh well, what else can be done then. If you haven't encountered any more BSODs, then it's fine.
