A quick question for all you gods of Tech

I have a question for all of you who happen to be much smarter than I am.

Ok so,

Every now and then when I boot my PC right after the Windows XP loading Screen I get a Blue screen error and the computer reboots. The problem is that the blue screen disappears before I have a chance to write down the error code so that I can track down the problem. Any suggestions?

Interesting aside, if the error happens, i boot the machine in to safe mode then restart and it boots up normally... weird.

    Try checking your event log to see if the error was trapped there. Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Event Viewer.

    It sounds like a driver issue to me.

    Error code =

    Error code 1000000a, parameter1 f0002640, parameter2 0000001c, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 805029e0.

    anybody know a good site that lists the meaning of error codes?

    Google.

    But that information probably isn't enough.

    I'd run a memtest first.

    Download the software at www dot memtest dot org

    Run that and see if it finds errors.

    The devil's website is also useful for getting this information. I had the luxury of getting a screenshot of my last BSOD cause I was running windows in VMWare on my Ubuntu Laptop.

    Regardless, the first item, the error code, is the most important, It classifies the kind of failure your going through. I had a 0x000000 error that was related to virtual hardware not liking my install of winxp... Anyhow try Microsoft and Google and Good Luck!
