    Windows crashing every 10 minutes, no dmp files(!!!)


    Hello!

    For the last couple of days Windows 8 has been crashing on me a dozen times, sometimes I go without a crash for 16 hours, then I get 3 in half an hour. I have a system managed page file, I've set windows up to create a kernel minidump in case of a BSOD, but it just refuses to create one, I don't even have a Minidump folder within my Windows folder.

    Turning to the event viewer for help is no use either, there's just some entry about an unexpected shutdown and that's it.

    Can you tell me how to get rid of that retarded smiley face, so windows would show actual technical information about the crash?

    Thank you!

    Oh joy!

    It's a USB controller hardware failure.

    Thank you very much for your help!
