Are you Windows user? Do you face blue screen of death or auto restart issue? Just come and get this, WhoCrashed downloaded. It’s all free for home users.
What it does?
Whenever a computer running Windows suddenly reboots without displaying any notice or blue screen of death, the first thing that is often thought about is a hardware failure. In reality, most crashes are caused by malfunctioning device drivers and kernel modules. In case of a kernel error, most computers running Windows do not show a blue screen unless they are configured to do so. Instead these systems suddenly reboot without any notice.
WhoCrashed shows the drivers which have been crashing your computer with a single click. In most cases it can pinpoint the offending drivers which have been causing misery on your computer system in the past. It does post-mortem crashdump analysis and presents all gathered information in a comprehensible way.
Lets move on with a sample report of my laptop.
Got the WhoCrashed downloaded (Download Here) and I followed simple and quick steps of installation. Pretty fine so far, because it works in Windows 7 Ultimate. Cheers! I opened the software, clicked on Dump Files and then ‘Analyze’ to let it analyze dump files in the default location c:\Windows\Minidump of Windows OS and other dmp files (You no need to specify any file path, it just picks from default location).
Amazing! so it runs so fast and quickly tell me that all my windows crashes are because of ‘Power State’. It’s true my laptop power is giving me really hard time and I need to fix it with new battery.

Honestly I have not found a way to this problem of Windows 7 freezing while watching YouTube but I have solution to overcome without hard resetting your computer.
I too face this most irritating issue while watching YouTube; all I did was hard resetting my computer and obviously I loose all my working files. I searched the whole Google Search Engine, tried different browser, updated flash player but still no luck. After so many days, I simply tried the method of ‘Switch User’ option in Windows 7 and it really worked!!!
No need to login with another user account. You try to login with the same user account that is currently hanged. You won’t believe, it works! you can access all your current opened windows and the hanged streaming YouTube video will work this time.
If we double click on the drive, an error pops up and says “Incorrect function”.
- Uninstalling InCD didn’t solve the issue.
- As per solution below,
- Right click on CD Drive
- Choose Properties
- Choose Recording Tab
- Check the option “Enable CD Recording On This Drive”
- Apply all settings.
The drive worked now.
