Dāvis's tech blog - Finding broken video card cooler by analyzing crash dump
A few days ago one of my workmates had strange problems with his workstation, including several Blue Screens per day.
I opened two crash dumps with Debugging Tools for Windows and both had video card driver on the stack. After telling this to my workmate he correctly suspected that video card cooler has failed. So we fixed his computer by replacing video card.
With this post I wanted to accent that also hardware problems can be noticed by looking at crash dumps. For those who yet don't know how simple it is to open a crash dump I can recommend this article.
