If your computer keeps restarting before you can do anything, press F8 repeatedly until you get a menu. Choose the option that says "Disable automatic restart on system failure". Now, instead of restarting, your computer will display a blue screen of death (BSOD) with error details. Post your error or Google the stop code (0x0000008e or similar)
