Create a dump file If you don’t have a memory dump to look at, you can generate one yourself by using NotMyFault. To get NotMyFault, go to the Windows Internals Book page at SysInternals and scroll down to the Book Tools section where you will see a download link. Keep in mind that NotMyFault WILL CREATE A SYSTEM CRASH so save any files that contain information that you might otherwise lose and close all applications. Properly prepared, the machine should go down, reboot and both a minidump and a kernel dump should be created.
