Hi, Coffindancer.

Rather than try to read the dump file, why not just change the default
settings so that you can read the Stop code directly from the BSOD?

Go to System Properties | Advanced | Startup and Recovery \ Settings. Under
(what to do in case of) System failure, remove the check from Automatically
restart. Next time the problem happens, your computer will halt with the
BSOD onscreen. You'll still have to reboot - by pressing your computer's
Reset button - but you'll have all the time you need to read the codes, copy
them down VERBATIM, and post them here. With the codes, some guru (not me!)
should be able to point you toward a solution.
