I have Windows Vista Ultimate with SP1 and all the latest updates installed.

I normally turn off the option to automatically reboot my computer in case of a blue screen so that I can read the error message and take any needed notes.

However, there are times my computer will experience a blue screen when I am accessing it remotely. As a result, my computer won't reboot until I am physically in front of it. If I change the option so my computer will, in fact, automatically reboot in case a blue screen occurs, is there somewhere inside of Windows I can look for a blue screen error message once Windows starts back up after the blue screen occurred?

thanks,
mike.

Yes, as long as the appropriate services are running.
Also, as long as the BSOD is one that will generate a crash dump file.

You can check in Event Viewer, in the Reliability Monitor, and in the Problem and Reports section of Control Panel.
You can also look for the memory dump files - either in C:\Windows\Minidump (it may be hidden), or for a file named "memory.dmp" in the C:\Windows directory.
