Gone before I could take a look at it


Well-Known Member

Today only a few minutes ago while I was watching a movie and not doing any specific thing at the time, at all, my computer suddenly had a BSOD but the real problem is that the screen was gone before I even could take a look at it so I have no clue at what might have caused it... Are the screens somehow stored somewhere on the pc and is there a easy guide somewhere to explain it all?

Thanks in advance,


Edit: Now with diagnostic tool info attached, if more information is required please let me know.

You could use these instructions: http://windows7forums.com/blue-screen-death-bsod/38837-how-ask-help-bsod-problem.html
to post a BSOD report.


Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System > Advanced Settings > Startup and Recovery

Then uncheck the box "automatically restart".

Then when the BSOD happens again, record the message displayed, STOP Code and what it labels as the problem.

To stop the pc rebooting beofre you can see the bsod:

Goto control panel, system, system protection, advanced tab, start-up and recovery settings, uncheck the "automatically restart" box.
