Blue screen!!!!

There are many many possibilities for this from bad RAM, to heat problems, to a failing HD to a corrupt driver, etc etc...can you please offer some more details?

Do you get any error messages? What does the Bluescreen say (if anything)? What doesit say in your event log? Have you added any software or hardware recently and the problems began after that? Did you upgrade to Win2k or install it from scratch? What applications are you running and does the error happen with certain apps? What kind of system/ram/etc do you have.

There are so many things that can cause a blue screen that we'll need more specifics to help you track down the cause.

Wow, too many things to list, the blue screen should give you an error message if you can write down the message it would really help...

If CPU is over heating you will get the blue screen and a restart, I would verify all fans are working. Memory is also famous for this problem..

This is a good place to start without knowing the error message.

It sounds like the basic issue is that the computer is automatically rebooting before you get a chance to review what the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) is telling you.

By default, Win2K is configured to automatically reboot on system failure (and aBSOD IS an indication of a system failure).

Go to Control Panel | Advanced tab | Startup and Recovery button. In the System Failure section, uncheck the box labeled "Automatically reboot."

Now when you have a failure, the BSOD will remain on the screen until you do a manual reset or hard reboot (cycle the power) (Ctrl-Alt-Del) will NOT work).

Once you get the BSOD, the critical information is the STOP error number and reference to any files. These two pieces of information will help tell you (or us) what might be causing your problem.

Hope this helps.

The best way to find out the problem will probably be found in the [%SystemRoot%\Minidump] or [\Windows\Minidump] folder in the memory contents at the time of the crash are recorded. Select the newest file and go throught the contents. Patientez, mon ami...
