Using Memory Dump Files to Analyze Stop Errors

Memory dump files record detailed information about the state of your operating system when the Stop error occurred. You can analyze memory dump files manually by using debugging tools or by using automated processes provided by Microsoft. The information you obtain can help you understand more about the root cause of the problem.

You can use WER to upload your memory dump file information to Microsoft. You can also use the following debugging tools to analyze your memory dump files manually:

• Microsoft Kernel Debugger (Kd.exe)
• Microsoft WinDbg Debugger (WinDbg.exe)

You can view information about the Stop error in the System Log after a Stop error occurs. For example, the following information event (with a source of Bugcheck and an Event ID of 1001) indicates that a 0xFE Stop error occurred.

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000fe (0x00000008, 0x00000006, 0x00000001, 0x87b1e000). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP.
