Unhappy Stop message!

Hi, I have been recieving a blue stop message just after windows xp begins to load and cannot read it because the computer restarts to quickly for me to get a look at it.

I know you can disable auto restart in windows control panel but I cannot gain access to windows to be able to turn this feature off.

Is there anyway I can pause the stop message using a certain key on the keyboard?

Hope you can help, Tobi

boot to safe mode, right click my computer, click properties, click advanced, under start and and recovery click settings, uncheck auto restart after sys failure, ok, ok, yes to reboot

Unhappy

Will I loose all my data saved under that last OS installed! Shall I go about this using the XP CD and boot to it and then choose to install from scratch over the same partition or repair last OS. Thanks for the help, Tobi

No luck, it does it's job then restarts to load up and then the stop message appears again and then it goes back into the restart cycle
