I'm on an old Gateway laptop that's around 4 years old. I've been randomly getting the blue screen, and I had just reformatted the whole laptop a week ago. It doesn't happen at any set time, it just happens randomly. I've looked for some help and I have come across some good troubleshooting guides, but my only problem is I can't read it when it flashes by and I'm not ready for it when it does.
I have found in a few places that you should right click My Computer and go into Properties and go on from there, but my version of My Computer doesn't have the selections. I'm supposed to go into startup and recovery settings to stop the computer from automatically shutting down but I just do not have that option. Are there any other choices here?
Here is a screenshot of my My Computer selections.
