Default Blue Screen Of Death

So I've been getting a BSOD just like the one seen here:

But the screen just stays up for less than 1 second and then the computer automatically reboots. Sometimes it will BSOD when Windows (XP) is loading, and sometimes after the computer has been on for 30+ minutes...

Dell XPS 420
Core 2 Quad Processor Q9300 (2.50GHz 1333FSB) with 6MB cache
4GB DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz
256MB Radeon ATI HD 2600 XT
Western Digital 7200 rpm 500GB SATA HDD w/ 16MB DataBurst Cache
Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer
Dell 2408wfp LCD
6X Blu-ray and 16X DVD+/-RW
Altec-Lansing THX certified 5.1 ADA995 Dolby Digital Speakers

Default Re: Blue Screen Of Death

Start>Right click on My COmputer>Properties>Click on Advanced Tab>Under the Startup and Recovery click Settings.

Now under the System Failure uncheck the Auto Restart.

This will allow you to get the BSOD.

This BSOD i smostly associated with bad drivers. So remove all the parts that you can and start ading them back one by one until you find the device that is causing th crash.

If you have updated any drivers recently that is the source of the issue.
I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher
