    Windows Insiders Collecting Data From Machine


    I have been updating/replacing hardware inside my 10 yr. old Dell 1720 Win 10 Insider machine. Today about an hour after having it apart and replacing the original memory modules, a message popped up on the screen. It said something to the effect of: "we have detected a problem with your Insider Preview edition of Windows, we will collect some data and restart your machine" (not a direct quote by any means). I had not noticed any problem except for some store apps not working and being unable to fix that issue even with Brink's tuts.

    Anyone else ever have that happen to them? Just curious. (running build 16257 skippy.)

    Was that a BSOD? That's fairly standard wording for one. It just means a dump file is being created for you to analyse later, should you wish. If so, it may be that a memory module need reseating.

    No BSOD. I had just replaced the memory with new modules an hour before and everything showed it was working correctly. It hasn't happened since.

    I'm going to be replacing the CPU and GPU so I may see it again. Replacing them because of the 10 year, 12-16 hour a day, 7 day a week usage.
