I was sending the second out of 6 faxes this afternoon using Windows Fax & Scan when it BSOD'd suddenly after getting a busy signal.
I unfortunately forgot to write down the error code from the blue screen thinking that it would be recorded, but it wasn't.

I'm not too worried about the actual BSOD as it didn't happen again.

Is that normal for a BSOD not to be mentioned in E.V....?

Do you have a file in C:\Windows\minidump\ with the right date and time?

Not any more as I just did a system restore to yesterday a.m. for another reason. The folder is now empty. So I guess we'll never know.

Thanks anyway...!

By the way, the hyperlink in the notification email for this lead me to the Easy BCD download page....weird. I then had to click the Forums link to get here.

Weird - Can you give me the link that was in the email?

In the future if you have any unexplained BSODs shoot me an email with the minidump & I'll have analyze it for you if you like.

Glad about that, it was a bit disconcerting. Didn't get any notification of your reply this time but traffic may be backlogged.
