A blue screen of death (BSOD) is one of the most feared Windows errors. It can occur in most of Microsoft’s operating systems. Experiencing this problem for the first time could be terrifying because users are usually clueless about what has happened and what steps to take to fix it. If you encounter this error, do not panic because we are here to guide you through this issue. Usually, the computer restarts immediately after the BSOD to protect the system from further damage. This is also troublesome because it prevents you from reading the message of the error. Therefore, you can’t diagnose and fix the issue. I will show you how to disable the automatic restart in the following steps below:

  • Right-click on My Computer.
