A blue screen suddenly appears and a message is displayed:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
It takes around 60 seconds for the message to be displayed before i can write down the whole error message.

Is there any other way to view the errors. Plz help

Click Start.
Click Control Panel.
Click Performance and Maintenance.
Click System.
Click the Advanced tab.
In the Startup and Recovery box, click the Settings button.
In the System Failure box, uncheck Automatically restart.
Put a check in Write an event to the system log, and Send an administrative alert.
Click OK.

Next time, it should give you an error message (BSOD) instead of restarting.
Write it down, word for word, and post it here.
