Tip & How-To about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Sometimes, when you get a Blue screen of death, eventually, you don't get enough time to write the problem down. But now here's the chance.
Right-click on the Computer icon and choose Properties. Windows Vista users will be taken to the system properties screen, so click on Advanced system settings.
The Advanced tab should already be selected, so you'll want to click the Settings button under "Startup and Recovery".
Here we go… just uncheck the option for Automatically restart under the System failure section.
Next time you get a BSOD you'll be able to see it and able to write down the error message. You'll have to manually reboot the computer if this happens, of course (by holding the power button for 5 seconds.)
This tip made me start thinking… are there any horror movies based on the blue screen of death or kids who see this goes freakin out?
This tip applies to all computers, excluding apple computers!
