Then the minidump file may give insight and clues as the possible cause of the BSOD. You can read this tutorial Windbg Minidump Tutorial to be able to read and open your minidump file.

Keep in mind that you should try and update your Service Pack for Vista. Currently, it’s at Service Pack 2. I had Service Pack 1. The Service Pack will have all the critical updates that are fixed. Click the following for more information on Vista’s Service Pack 2. Read Microsoft’s post on how to download the latest Service Pack 2.
