Another BSOD

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I got this BSOD from Vista x64 and have no other info about it.
I have tried to open the crash dump using the debugging tools for windows but dont know how to use it. Can anyone help? Any other ways to find out what went wrong? Also, how can I set my computer up so that it doesn't reboot upon a BSOD?

So you don't know what the BSOD code is?

nope.
Got home from work and was welcomed by the "Windows has recovered from an error" message with nothing about anything. Folding @ home isn't running so I know it had been rebooted.

Did you check your eventviewer? That might give some insite to the problem...... Control panel/admin tools/eventviewer

Reset your CMOS to clear any recent hardware changes (New RAM or CPU.) or unstable overclock settings.

You should go into your BIOS and change the power options to whatever would indicate disabling re-boot on power failure.

Impossible. A BSOD by default shuts the computer down as a safety precaution -- to prevent any potential damage (to the system) from occurring due to a possible faulty or unstable component. Can you imagine if something overheated in your computer, and instead of shutting down (upon a BSOD) - the computer stayed "on" still? Best thing for you to do at this point would be to stress-test your computer (for a few hours) with something like Orthos, to try and catch one. That way you can better single-out the "culprit" behind your BSOD.
