Default Logs Of bootup crashes

where does windows keep logs of bootup crashes, like blue screens of death. so that i can analyze them and find out why my computer crashes once or twice during bootup.

If that is happening I strongly recommend you use your OS disc and run a repair on it.

No you should be able to do the reapair no risk all it does is replace the system files of the OS (system32/windows folder defualts) to the origanal files. All your personal files and folders will not be touched.


This may make you lose some OS mods you have done but I doubt you've made any and this is generally a easy way to fix blue screen of death errors.
