    I just now went to My Comp > Properties > Advanced > Settings under Start up & Recovery and turned off automatically restart on System failure. When the comp restarted it went to the Blue Screen and some gave the message (dunno if its off help)

    A kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didn’t catch. These are nearly always hardware compability issues (which sometimes means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).
