    Hi, can anyone point me towards someone who could help me with BSODs I've had...

    I don't know where to find the dump files and I don't know where to ask for help for this situation.

    I'd first start by having a camera ready and take a shot of the BSOD.
    fullinfusion says thanks.

    that bluescreen viewer app that you linked for me shows that the exe that seems to be related to the problem is the following: "ntoskrnel.exe70740"

    Kinda surprised nobody else asked, but what were you doing when the BSOD occurred?
    Yeah, should be like STOP 0x0000000. I'm not sure how many characters after the "0x" but I think it's hexadecimal. In any case, you can usually just google that code and find a lot of useful info.

    When you actually get the error code, you can click the link in my sig to look up the blue screen code and see what it has to suggest.
