Disabling Automatic Restart on System Failure in Windows

As a safety feature and as a precaution Windows always restarts immediately when it encounters a serious/critical error (such as a blue screen stop error). This immediate restart prevents us to read/note the necessary error codes or the detailed error message that prompts on the screen to further troubleshoot to avoid similar errors in the future.

By following the below steps, one can disable the Automatic Restart to gain more time to read and note down the error messages and error codes.

  • Right click My Computer and select properties

  • Uncheck Automatic Restart and click Ok

The next time you receive a stop error you will have enough time to note down the error codes and the error messages which will help you to trouble shoot further
