What op system?

Have you got a Nvidia Gforce 200 or 400mmx card?

VoG.That seems very complicated!! Fruit Bat.XP PRO and nVidia-nForce2 1.x I think?

Option 1.

Delete all the files in the c:\windows\minidump subdirectory
Deleted the whole c:\docume~1\(your
logon)\local~1\temp\werl.tm.dir00\ directory

If not cured then

2. Boot to save mode F8 after POST unistall nvidia card drivers and re install signed XP drivers for your card.

3. Disabled hibernation

Does Option 1. refer to me performing a "search" then just delete,or is it more complicated than that?

Use Windows Explorer to locate the folders.

Note that the message is truncating the folder names. For example "docume~1" is short for "Documents and Settings" and "local~1" is probably "LocalService".

VoG..Many thanks for your help..That might seem easy for someone who knows something about a PC,but to a virtual novice like myself its not...Where do I find Windows Explorer to look for the files?

  VoG II 20:06 30 Sep 2004

If it is Windows XP, you should find Windows Explorer in Start, All Programs, Accessories.

Alternatively, if you have a "My Computer" icon on your desktop, double click it, then double click the C drive, then double click Documents and Settings and so on.

VoG..Got to Documents and Settings but couldn't find anything like "local" or "LocalService"?
Maybe I did delete all the minidumps I found doing "search"? Will leave it for tonight and see how it goes!! Thanks for the help... P.S. Is ihatemykids still about,with the photos?
