While watching vidio in full screen a blue screen pops up with a warning witch goes away to soon to read it . The only way to get it back is to shut down the power and restart has anyone seen this before Thanks :thumbsup:

In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. An alternative is to turn off the automatic reboot feature so you can actually see the error code/STOP Message (which is also known as the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD)).

To change the recovery settings and Disable Automatic Rebooting, right-click on My Computer and select Properties > Advanced tab. Under "Startup and Recovery", click on the "Settings" button and go to "System failure". Make sure that "Write an event to the system log" is checked and that "Automatically restart" is unchecked. Click "OK" and reboot for the changes to take effect.

This will not cure your problem but instead of crashing and restarting you will get a blue diagnostic screen with information displayed that will allow you to better trace your problem. Next time your computer crashes copy down the entire error message (including all the numbers) and post it back here.

This person had a problem with full screen. Here's what solved their problem FYI

"Thanks for your help. I found the solution.

A while back I installed a program called 'Driver Magician" It's suppose to check PC for out dated drivers. Long story short, it installed a utility called SIS VGA utility. I was just going backwards trying to undo anything I may have done, and came upon that. I went to uninstall it, and got an error message that it couldn't uninstall for some reason. When I restarted PC, The resolution had changed. After resetting it to the correct resolution everything seemed to be fine. Go figure! Thanks for your help"

I had the BSOD many times before, but now it doesn't appear as often. Can you give us some more information of your computer.

I've got to ask. Are you sure it's the correct memory? SDRAM, PC133
If possible, go to Device Manager and expand all of the +'s. Look for any yellow exclamation points. That will indicate a problem device. Also look in the Event Viewer and look for errors that happened around the same time as your problem

How old is the Thinkpad and what OS was originally on it. I had one with 2000 on it and to install XP I had to update the BIOS

Stop 0x0D1 errors are most typically caused is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile. Some things you can try:

Check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). Look for any "!", "?" or "X" symbols.

Test you RAM using memtest86.

Reset your pagefile. Go to Start...Run...and type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Performance Settings button
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Virtual Memory Change button
Write down all of the settings so that you can restore them later.
Click on each volume (drive) and then click "No paging file" for each one.
Then click on OK to exit the dialogs
Then reboot - it'll be gone then.

To restore it - go back in and re-enter the settings that you removed.
