Analyze System Crashes with BlueScreenView
All Windows users must be aware of the Blue Screen Of Death or BSOD as it is referred to. BlueScreenView is a free utility that scans the mini dump files that are created during the Blue Screen of Death Crashes. It can then analyze the files and will present you all the information about all crashes in a single table. The program scans the content of the Mini dump folder and provides a detailed report with the basic crash details as well as all the drivers and modules involved.
For Every Crash, it displays the mini dump filename, the date/time of the crash, the basic crash information displayed in the blue screen along with the details of the driver or module that possibly caused the crash. The interface of the program is simple. The crash is displayed in the upper pane and for each crash, you details of the device drivers loaded during the crash in the lower pane. It also marks the drivers that their addresses found in the crash stack. This utility is quite useful for advanced and power users as they can find out the reason after looking at the information. For this utility to work, your system should be configured to save a `Small memory dump’ file in the default folder. You can do this by going to the “Advanced System Properties” dialog under “Start up and Recovery”.
The program is a freeware and requires no installation as it is portable. It is very small in size and runs on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Vista and Windows 7.
