XP Pro - stopping auto restart

  User-6D9C7ECD-6DDA-4B14-9C396D58713D0EC1 12:21 27 Mar 2004


When my computer crashes the old blue screen of death only flicks up for a millisecond before the machine reboots.

How can i stop it doing this so i can actually read the error message?

Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under Startup & Recovery click Settings. Under System Failure untick the box in front of Automatically restart.

Cheers VoG, very prompt reply!!
