While burning a cd yesterday computer locked up and got a blank blue screen,
wouldn't reboot. Came to find out stick of ram went bad. Replaced the ram and
now windows tries to reboot but part way through a blue screen shows up but I
don't have enough time to read it before computer reboots itself. Anyway to
stop it so I can see what it says. I can't even get into windows using safe
mode. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Disable automatic restart on system failure (on SP2): Press F8 on restart, and see the menu item to disable auto restart. Restart,
and when the STOP message appears, record information needed for further troubleshooting.
