Wow, been a while I guess since I've been on the forums, LOVE the new layout.

Now to my question. I know in windows 7 you can find the stop code/error code on a BSOD screen after the reboot. The only problem is I don't know how to do that on a desktop that runs XP. Does anyone know how to get the code after the fact on an XP machine?

Thanks

I'm not sure if there's a way to do it after the fact. I know you can set the computer up not to instantly restart on a BSOD though, so you can write down the error. I don't know how off hand, but if you check tweaktown.com, it should show you how to do it.
