There are several classes of fatal exception.

You need to read the error message in full

When you attempt to start Windows or an application inside of Windows, you may encounter errors similar to the following:
A fatal exception <XY> has occurred at xxxx:xxxxxxxx the <XY> represents the actual processor exception from 00 to 0F. The xxxx:xxxxxxxx represents the enhanced instruction pointer to the code segment and the 32-bit address is the actual address where the exception occurred. Windows does not cause these errors, but has the exception handling routine for that particular processor exception, which displays the above message

Next time it happens (and it almost certainly will) get all the info on the blue screen of death written down :)
