Stop blue screen of death shutdown

One of the most frustrating things about troubleshooting random blue screen errors is that the computer reboots before you have a chance to write down the error messages so you can Google them later. Here’s how to fix that.

This is especially annoying if you keep getting blue screen errors because of some device conflict

The quick and easy solution is to just turn off the automatic reboot option and force the blue screen to stay there.

Right-click on the Computer icon and choose Properties. Windows 7 or Vista users will be taken to the system properties screen, so click on Advanced system settings.

The Advanced tab should already be selected, so you’ll want to click the Settings button under “Startup and Recovery”.

Just uncheck the option for Automatically restart under the System failure section.

Next time you get a BSOD you’ll be able to see it and able to write down the error message. You’ll have to manually reboot the computer if this happens, of course.
