Such as model number, OS age etc. Hard for members to guess without this info.

Open the Control Panel, then double click on "System". Once that opens, select "Advanced System Settings" on the left side, then click on the "Settings" button in the "Startup and Recovery" section. Once there, UNCHECK the box that says: "Automatic restart" in the "System Failure" section, then click on OK, etc.

Hope this helps.
