Recovery SettingsOne of the things that is quite different\015\012about Windows XP compared to Windows 9x (9x is shorthand for Windows\015\01295, Windows 98, and Windows Me in all their various versions), is that\015\012one can control how it responds to certain critical errors—those that\015\012cause the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In Windows XP,\015\012the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a\015\012fatal error occurs. If that fatal error only occurs when you're\015\012shutting down, the system reboots automatically.
If you haven't\015\012changed any of the system failure settings, you should be able to see\015\012the error by looking in the Event Log. But a better long-term solution\015\012is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error\015\012when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let\015\012you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable\015\012automatic rebooting:
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\0121.
\015\012Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
\015\012\015\0122.
\015\012Click the Advanced tab.
\015\012\015\0123.
\015\012Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
\015\012\015\0124.
\015\012Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
\015\012\015\0125.
\015\012Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now\015\012when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see\015\012it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out\015\012what's causing the problem, but that gets us to the next section quite\015\012nicely.
