Have you guys ever faced Windows’s famous BSoD (Blue Screen of Death)? What was your expression? I am sure cursing the Windows OS while sitting helpless watching computer restart. BSoD happens so quickly that we do not get enough time read the message what is written on that blue screen. This is normally happens when a driver starts malfunctioning or physical memory problem. This type of problem is irrecoverable at the moment of happening and forces system to crash which results in restart of computer. Because of this problem, whatever you were doing just washed away. To stop BSoD, you need to check why physical memory dumping problem arose or check the malfunctioning driver. But you can stop system from automatic restart when BSoD happens. This is a simple few steps procedure. If you are still using Windows XP, you can follow instructions HERE in an old article published 3 years ago. Below are complete pictorial to Stop Windows 7 Automatic Restart On System Failure.
