Choosing recovery actions if Windows stops unexpectedly
Using Startup and Recovery in System in Control Panel, you can configure Windows to do the following when a severe error (called a Stop error or Fatal system error) occurs:
The dump of system memory to a log file can be valuable for debugging the cause of the Stop error. If you contact your technical support representatives about the error, they might ask for the log file. Note that Windows writes the log file to the same file name (Memory.dmp, by default) each time a Stop error occurs. To preserve log files, you should rename the log file with a unique name after the computer restarts. For more information, click Related Topics.
