    BSOD Overnight


    Not sure what killed it, my other server stayed running just this one went down. This server is used for a domain controller, DNS and eventually a WSUS server. I have attached the files required.

    No minidumps are included. Please check if your computer is configured to create them. If you are using CCleaner, please stop since it's destroying the dumps we need.

    I did a search on the computer and could note find any dumps. I am not running CCleaner or any similar application that would get rid of them. The tool says it can not find the path for the dump files.

    - open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog))
    - expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
    - right click on Administrative Events
    - select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
    - save the file as Admin.evtx
    - zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
    - upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

    The only power problem I see is that of the Feb 4th, but it's nothing specific. Has there been another crash? If you want we can test the drivers for 24 h and see if any of them crashes by using this: Driver Verifier - BSOD related - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista - Sysnative Forums.
    Is there at least 25% of disk space available? Is the system clean of malware?

    No issues over the weekend. Hope it was a 1 time issue.
