Joanne Corrigan Doyle’s six-month-old laptop reboots every few minutes. “Is there anything I can change…to fix this?”

Yes and maybe. There’s a setting you can change that will give you at least a hint of the problem. But the hard part starts after you get that hint.

So let’s get you to a point where your crashes contain some useful information.

  1. Go to the Search tool in your version of Windows, type sysdm.cpl, and select the program of the same name.
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. Click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery (as opposed to the dialog box’s other two Settings buttons).
  4. Uncheck Automatically restart.
  5. You might also want to check Write an event to the system log if it’s not already checked.
