Windows 7: Pause the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD)

   Posted June 8, 2011 by Lê Hoàng in Windows

The Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) is the nightmare of every Windows user. When it appears, many users may want to write down the error code to troubleshoot the problem. Unfortunately, the system will be restarted automatically in most cases, so you may have no idea what the error code is. Here is how to pause the screen when your computer has BSOD to make troubleshooting your system easier. This method works with other system failures as well.

1. Right click on Computer -> Properties.

2. In the System window, go to Advanced system settings.

3. When the System Properties window pops up, switch to Advanced tab -> Settings (under Startup and Recovery)

4. Uncheck Automatically restart (under System failure) and hit OK.
