BSOD crashes

Hi,
If I set the bios options for CPU speed to auto (11x), it boots ok, but when XP loads, the BSOD appears, and it reboots. BSOD flashes on screen, so no time to search for any clues as to problem. Taking the speed down to 10.5 makes it stable again. Even a new install of XP (with SP2) fails to cure problem.

I have applied latest drivers for sound/graphics/lan. Memory test seems ok.
PSU is 350w.

Is there any way, when the BSOD appears to freeze the screen to allow me to look for the problem, before the re-boot takes place?

Thanks,
Miln. :tazz:

Hi,
Thanks for the responce. unfortunately the BOSD flashes on the screen, so I don't get the chance to view things. No core dump is done ether, just a re-boot.
Is there any way top freeze the screen (I did try hitting the break key, but I guess i was just not fast enough!!)
