|Three things may happen. One is an event log is created. Second may be a dump log or minidump, Third is no log.|
Normal installs tend to have it enabled by default. See help and support for dump logs for more info. See also MS site on how to read them if they are being formed. Kind of like old Dr Watson.
As for the live cd, you might wish to start with ultimate boot cd and use their tests. Run a few memory tests for a day or so to be sure.
Lastly is a way to run what is called performance monitor (perfmon) on a remote system is best. Make a log of a few suspicious parameters and see if they slowly rise or show what is causing this.
