Stop BSoD From Restarting

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. Instead of dealing with all that, you can just turn off the automatic reboot option and force the blue screen to stay there. To do this follow these steps:

 1. Right-click on the My Computer icon and select 'Properties'
 2. Click on the 'Advanced' tab
 3. Click on the 'Settings' button under 'Startup and Recovery'
 4. Uncheck the 'Automatically Restart' checkbox

The next time you get a BSOD you'll be able to see it and able to write down the error message. You will then need to manually restart your computer.
