Not sure on this as I have never had any of those problems on XP. But do know that it's not a BIOS thing but a Windows thing. There is a setting that you can change so that it throws up the error message instead of just rebooting. Right click on My computer\Properties and have a look at the settings under the tabs. Cannot assist further as I am my 98se com
I misinterpreted your question and thought you meant at boot-up time.
There is in fact an option in the BIOS that comes under "Halt On" and it can be set for; All Errors, No Errors, All but keyboard (normally the default) and a couple of others depending on the configuration.
Sorry if I mislead you.
