Blue Screen

Hi:
I got only Blue Screen after turning on the computer this morning. I wait
hoping XP for about five minutes, but it did NOT show up, ... only blue
screen stuck, not any move at all.

Desperately I hit 'F12' and XP finally came to screen. This scenario started
to happen on and off from yesterday afternoon.

Just wonder what's wrong with the PC? I never changed nor new program to
install.

Any idea, ... first of all, what's going on the PC? And what action should
I take NOT to happen again?

Thanks for your help in advance.

PCs occasionally have issues like this. Sometimes it's an indication
of ongoing issues - other times it's not. A BSOD is basically a PC
going down a dead-end road, no return path - so it just halts. When
this happens the only thing to do is power off, wait a few seconds &
then reboot.

BSODs do display data that can be deciphered to determine what
type of event happened. You'll see a code displayed on the screen
that can be cross-referenced to find out what went wrong. BSODs
can be triggered by either software or hardware (drivers ) calls.

If the exceptions continue to happen you'll need to note the error
message displayed and research the codes.

Oh bullshit.

You should have done that _first_

these things happen all the time normally and there is nothing to
worry about
just use your system restore like suggested and you will fix it.

If it happens "all the time," it is not normal. You might want to think
about some troubleshooting steps to fix it before it gets to the point that
you can't get into system restore to fix it.
