    Have any hardware oriented changes been made to the system since it
    worked? RAM, video card, storage (hard disks, USB devices), printers,
    network hardware drivers, device drivers?

    If Windows will load, disable Automatic restart on system error to
    stop the error on your screen so you can see it:

    Right click My Computer, Properties, Advanced, Startup and Recovery
    Settings.

    In the System failure section, untick the Automatically restart box,
    OK, OK.


    If you can only boot in Safe Mode and are seeing a BSOD, choose the
    option:

    Disable automatic restart on system failure

    Then you can see the BSOD when it happens again.

    Here are some BSOD blue screen of death examples showing information
    you need to provide:

    Send the information pointed to with the red arrows (3-4 lines
    total). Skip the boring text unless it looks important to you. We
    know what a BSOD looks like, we need to know the other information
    that is specific to your BSOD.

    If you do not have a genuine bootable XP installation CD, you should
    make a bootable XP Recovery Console CD. You are probably going to
    need one, so make it now.

    This is not the same as any Recovey or System CDs that may have come
    with a store bought system.

    You can create a bootable XP Recovery Console CD when no XP media is
    available with these instructions:

    Start the computer, tap the F8 key repeatedly until the startup menu
    appears and select "Last known good configuration".
