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 person.
