    If you are running XP or 2000, and you could somehow manage to boot into safe mode you could then right click on the My Computer icon and select Properties. Then in the System Properties window, select the Advanced tab. On that tab you will see Start up and Recovery. Click the button next to that.
    A Start up and Recovery window will open. Mid way down you will see a section titled System Failure. UN-CHECK Automatically Restart.

    Now if the crash occurs again you can read the stop error and then attempt to recover the system.

    Or you could slave the hard drive to another Computer and recover the data, then reformat the drive and reinstall Windows.

    Yeah the first thing I did was turn off his wireless, and unplug his ethernet cord =)

    I will try to restore it if I can get past the "blue screen of death" by turning off the restart on failure IO... I cant wait to see what it says!

    thanks to everyone for their help and I will let you know how it goes.

    If you can get into safe mode you might also use the Event Viewer to see if there are any clues in the logs.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
