    I've already configured my system with the instructions from the first two options for minidumpos....I will do the third now but I'm not sure what else I can do to make it appear.

    Here are screenshots of all methods being done: - Album on Imgur
    Try this:
    First add "Take Ownership" to right click context menu: Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Then right click the "Minidump" folder and select "Take Ownership" you will find it in the folder in C:\Windows\
    after that right click the "Windows" folder and select "Take Ownership"
    and run the "dm log collector" as Administrator"

    What will the minidump folder be called? I'm in the windows folder currently but nothing stands out.

    it is called: Minidump
    make sure you show hidden files and folders and system files and folders as well
    if the folder is not there then create a new folder and name it: Minidump

    That folder didn't seem to be there - I created it now. I'm guessing we will have to wait for another BSOD for the files to be put in there?

    I have no clue man...just played Dota and it crashed very frequently all with the same "Critical process died" BSOD error. I was thinking it could be a faulty GPU but occassionally when I play remember me it runs perfectly fine with no crashes. It's not overheating or anything.

    Even after those crashes there is still nothing in the Minidump folder...

    try those solutions:
    1-in the windows search box, type this: *.dmp
    to see if your system saves dump files in a different folder for 32bit applications.

    2- Go to registry by typing this command in Run: regedit , click enter
    then follow those steps from Microsoft: Collecting User-Mode Dumps (Windows)
    you should reboot after the second solution.

    Edit:
    In the second method, under the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting, you will find an entry named: Disabled, double click it and set it's value to: 0 (if it's not already set)

    I will do this tonight. But just an update I went ahead and did another clean install just for the hell of it. I haven't installed or updated anything outside of the first batch of windows updates and it still happened.

    I wasn't doing anything intensive on the system, just browsing the internet when it happened. This is leading me to believe it is a hardware issue...not sure if you agree?

    I will try your suggestions tonight though thanks.

    I also attempted to do the link you posted from MS but that registry folder "LocalDumps" is not there: https://i.imgur.com/UwSYydl.png

    I'll attach my whole registry key when I get back home after 4 hours from now.

    Two days a go, I've made a clean installation of windows on a brand new hard disk, and I didn't get the BSOD since that.
    Borrowed Windows 10 Enterprise x64 from a trusted friend.

    Edit:
    Attached all of my registry keys and values for Windows Error Reporting.
    feel free to scan and/or edit them for checking.
