Vista and 7 Tips and tricks: Turn off reboot on BSOD and UAC
« on: November 15, 2007, 09:38:38 AM »
Do you notice that at times, you get a screen full of blue text, and the computer reboots too fast for you to read it? This means you've just had a Blue Screen of Death and your machine is set to automatically reboot.
 
This step by step process describes how to turn off automatic reboot on blue screen of death in Windows Vista. The steps in windows XP are similar, and if you need those posted let me know.
 
Note, if you get UAC prompts, just click OK.
  • Click on Start, and type System into the search box. Normally, item #4 on the list, which just says System will be what you want. See attachment #1.
  • Click on Advanced System Settings. See attachment #2.
  • Click on Settings in the Startup and Recovery section. See attachment #3.
  • Make sure Automatically Restart is not checked.
  • Click OK in every dialog box until you are back to the desktop.
If there's something I've missed let me know!

Got Vista/7? Turn off User Account Control!
« Reply #1 on: December 12, 2007, 10:49:31 AM »
Many Vista problems with older games and programs are related to User Account Control (UAC), and how it restricts access to key system features. UAC is what pops up and asks for a confirmation every time you want to make a system change. If you game on Vista, you should turn UAC off!
 
 
There's several ways to do this, the first being from the User Account screen, however, here's the quickest way:
  • Make sure your account is an admin account first.
  • Hit START, and type in msconfig, and press enter, or click on the first entry in the list (See Attachment #1)
  • Click on the Tools tab, scroll down to "Disable UAC", click it, and click on Launch. (See Attachment #2)
  • Reboot, and UAC is now off!
If I missed anything let me know.
