Does the error message appear on a blue screen? If so, right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under "Startup & Recovery", click Settings. Under "System Failure", uncheck the box in front of "Automatically restart". THe next time, you should have time to read the error message.

Please post the exact error message here.
