View Full Version : Automatic Reboot on Error - BLOWS
01-13-04, 08:20 AM
So like all the sudden my XP machine is blue screening.
I would like to be able to take a look at the error mssg so I can go look it up, but it automaticly reboots I have about 1/100th of a second to try to read the error and that just aint happening.
Does anyone know how I can turn off the automatic reboot from recovery console?

Right click My Computer > Properties
Click the Settings button under 'Startup and Recovery'
Uncheck 'Automatically restart'

Yeah but it is a little to late for that. I am already blue screening and cannot get into any part of the OS.

Workshop bound, I'm sure, but this may help me troubleshoot a problem I've been having where my XP machine reboots spontaneously without an error message, usually only when playing EQ. (Back In Black)

Got the same sort of error last night but happened trying to view something in realplayer.
Try disabling the auto reboot from Safe Mode. I don't believe offhand that it can be done from Recovery Console.
However, when in doubt, Recovery Console > "chkdsk /r", and go watch a movie. Amadan :: Child of the Phoenix ::

buy a mac? Install AOL and have it automatically fix your machine? ? (I just assume knoppix fixes all problems.)

Lol, has anybody ever taken a look at what that automatic fix can/does actually do?

I should have read the article first. I don't think it's going to help. Edited by: Mithrilhall at: 1/13/04 1:06 pm

I'm not sure any of these will help but it's worth a shot:

oh the second one might just do what I am looking for

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
That should let you make the registry file to change the setting, and import it from the commandline. -------------------------

I think I might actually be having a more serious problem than what this can fix because the stupid PC rebooted yesterday while in BIOS setup screen, and then wouldn't POST for a good 5 minutes of me pressing the power & reset buttons.
Tonight I'm ripping my machine apart, checking for any funny looking scorches or oily spots, cleaning connections, and making sure all wires are nice and snug.
Good luck Biggwin

Thanks for the good links, while it was looking grim yesterday about finding a way to turn off the autoreboot I said %@!# it and did a reload on top of the current load.
It fixed everything and I quickly turned off that stupid little check mark
