Exclamation Blue Screen - possible to prevent?
Hi everyone,

I am using my computer for not so long. One week ago I got a Blue Screen. As an any newbie I was shocked and didn't know what to do. I reinstalled entire Windows, lost some useful files and spent 6 hours on configuring my system! It was terrible.
I have a question does anyone know if there is some software that could save XP from Blue Screen?
I believe that it could save much time and nerves spent on Windows reinstall.

Any advices are appreciated!
Thank you in advance!

re: Blue Screen error
Hi kathyPol,

I had the same problem as you not so long ago. I was too tired to reinstall my XP for the 6th time.
I found System Optimizer suite from Digeus.
it is now 4 monthes my PC is working stable without Windows reinstalling, so I quess that suite helped me.

it depends on what the blue screen said
sometimes its a very simple fix of re-installing a device driver

to stop the blue screen flashing past
goto
control panel>
system>
advanced tab>
startup and recovery - settings>
under the title - system failure
untick - automatically restart

http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;320299

now when it crashes - it willnot restart and the blue screen should stay on the screen
post the info on the screen
it will give the errorcodes and a filename, if caused by a driver.

Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
Click the Application category.

Look For Recent Errors > Double Click on them > Another Windows Will open > On the Right Side use the Double Notepad icon to copy the error paste them here
