How do I pause or freeze the monitor screen in Win7-64, during a BSOD???

    Question

  • Greetings to Everyone here today....14 July, 2012

    Here is my situation:  Getting BSOD...New situation for my PC.  BSOD displays 5-6 MS error codes.  The monitor screen stays up only approx 4 secs B4 it >>>>all the data to the Crash Dump File.  Since I can not get past the POST, this does me no-good.  So, the first ? is, How do I pause or freeze the monitor screen during the BSOD, so I can share the error codes with folks like you all, who know much more about them than I do.  I have a detailed report ready to share, once we get this first obstacle cleared.

    Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to read and ponder my perdicamint.  

    Best regards,

  • If you can get into Windows (whether in Safe Mode or Normal), go to Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings (on the left). Click the Settings button in the Startup and Recovery section, and uncheck Automatically Restart under System Failure. This will prevent Windows from restarting on a BSOD, giving you time to jot down the information on the screen to help solve the problem.

  • When the computer boots up, be Quick and press F8, You will now get to Advanced Boot Options. Here you can choose "Disable automatic restart on system failure"
