I was restarting the PC after hibernate recently and I got a Blue
Screen. I rebooted.

Where can I find any log info about this crash?

-----------

In System properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery settings, I
have got the following which I think are the defaults:


Write An Event To The System Log - set to yes
Send An Administrative Alert - set to yes
Automatically restart - set to no
Write Debugging Information - set to "Small Dump (64 KB)"
Small Dump Directory - set to "%SystemRoot%\Minidump"



Paging file on C: is 5 to 50 MB and on D it is 350 to 700 MB.
768 MB memory installed.
Hibernate will sometimes be on.

Simply open Start, Run, type (without quotes) '%SystemRoot%\Minidump' and click OK. The minidump files will appear on the screen.

The folder C:\windows\Minidump is empty. It has a Modified Date
of 20 Aug 2005 but it has no contents.

What is happening?
