You can stop the autorestart feature in XP so you can read the blue screen

Open System Properties via Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System
[ System Properties may also be opened using the WinKey+Pause key combination ]
Select the Advanced tab and then click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section
In System Failure section, clear the checkbox next to Automatically Restart
Click OK and OK to exit.

You may get am error using the control panel method if you have your pagefile running from a different drive other than the "C" drive.


0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

You need to think back and see if you remember if you may have changed a driver, added a new program, or some other kind of event that may be causing this to happen. If your system is getting hot it may cause this problem also. Download speedfan and see what your temps usually run at. I have even had this problem caused by low 12 volt line voltage. Speedfan also shows what your system voltages are.
