My laptop gets the blue screen of death about five times a day. It comes up and shuts down my computer to fast for me to read what it says so I haven't a clue what the error message is, the only word I have been able to catch before it disapears is 'dumping'

Is there a log somewhere on my computer system that I can pull up the error message or does someone here know what I'm referring to by that one word? (long shot I know, not alot of information to go on and Im sorry...)

does it restart or shutdown

if restart

goto
control panel>
system>
advanced tab>
startup and recovery - settings>
under the title - system failure
untick - automatically restart

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;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.

also theres a log file you may want to look at
start >
control panel>
administrative tools>
event viewer>

Ok, the event viewer says "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000050 (0xfd277028, 0x00000000, 0xee42a002, 0x00000000). Microsoft Windows 2000 [v15.2195]. A dump was saved in: C:\WINNT\Minidump\Mini012607-02.dmp."

It happened again and this time, thanks to the settings change, I was able to see it. It says:
EE42A002 base at EE427000 - trid3d.dll date stamp
Beginning dump of physical memory.
Physical dumping completed.

Yes, it is a compaq presario 1200

Is reloading the video driver as simple as going to add/remove hardware?
