22. How Do I Disable Automatic Restart To
Read Blue Screen Messages
Sometimes an error occurs on your machine and you
are immediately hit by a BSOD (Blue Screen Of
Death). The only problem is the screen flashes by so
quickly you rarely get to see what may have caused
the error in the first place.
To the layman the information on the screen may
as well be in a foreign language but, in a number of
cases, to a technician the all important 'gobbledegook'
can mean the difference between locating your
problem or complete disaster.
By disabling the automatically restart on system
failure feature, you are able to read what messages
appear on the blue screen and can, if necessary,
pass the information on to your technical support
