Fast blue screen

I just had a call from a friend who is getting a B.S.O.D. but it flashes by so cannot read the error message.The screen reverts to a black screen. I had a similar problem with another friends laptop and I managed to stop the process at the blue screen and was able to read it.
I cannot for the life of me remember how I did it.

thanks.

oops,I think I've answered my own question, but if anyone would like to confirm it.

If you can start in Safe Mode you can render that BSOD non-fleeting, at least. In Safe Mode right-click My Computer and choose Properties. Click the Advanced tab. Click the lowest of the three Settings buttons. UN-check "Automatically restart" and click OK, OK. Now at least the BSOD will stay on-screen so you can read it.
