so you restart your computer you get the blue screen, push power button and turn it on it works? What does the message say? anything in event viewer? System information.

I am unsure

by Snuffy09 In reply to Blue Screen upon Restarti ...

if your problem is related to a hardware error or a software error. due to the lack of info i can only guess.

if it is a software error you can try this:
click start>run>(type)msconfig click the "services" tab then click disable all. Click the Startup tab then click disable all. Click apply and restart.

If you get no blue screens then you have to go back into msconfig and enable services 1 at a time to find the one with the issue.

A big hint will be in the text of the blue screen itself. maybe a driver issue.

Easy fix

Don't restart the System always Shutdown.

First thing to do is Update all of your Motherboard Device Drivers and see how it performs.

Click Start, right mouse click Computer and select Properties. Select Advanced System Properties, continue. Select Settings for Startup and Recovery. Untick Automatically Restart.

How to read the small memory dump files that Windows creates for debugging


To download and install the Windows debugging tools, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Open Windbg and select file, Symbol file path and brows to the Symbol folder that you have downloaded and installed Symbols to, select OK.

Close the workpage and save the Workspace information. This should lock in the Symbol path.

Open Windbg and select file and select Open Crash Dump then navigate to the minidump, highlight it and select Open.

There are two ways to use !analyze -v the easiest is to click on !analyze -v under Bugcheck Analysis.

When you have ran the initial dump if you look to the bottom of the screen you will see kd> to the right of that type in !analyze -v and press the Enter key.

Ctrl + a will let you copy the information and paste it into notepad.

Look to the bottom of the page for information like this. This was fixed by updating the Graphics Drivers.
