Windows XP pro, kosher s/n etc
System reinstqlled about 6 months ago
I started my PC up as normal the other day, it went through the boot process until the logon screen no problems.
I couldn't type my password, as no cursor was showing; I assumed I had a keyboard error.
I turned off the PC, and restarted, got the usual "computer did not start " msg you get in these circumstances. I tried to boot it on last known good configuration.
It went through process, the a BSOD flashed for about half a second, and the machine restarted.
This is all it now does. I THINK I can read something about memory before the BSOD disappears, but that is all;
Is there any way of stopping the comp on the BSOD so I can read it? I think that once I can read it, I should be able to sort the problem. There is nothing in the error log except a couple of really old keyboard missing msgs.
I had done no hardware changes (or software changes as far as I know) except for swapping the RAM around since this has occurred - just in case.
Apologies for any typois - I am doing this on a French (azerty) keyboard at the library and it's doing my head in.
*edit*I should mention - no possibilty of virus, etc, as PC has not been online the past 6 months - I did install, downloaded updates, and that was the last time it was connected.
