    By chance, is there any way to make Windows automatically reboot from these BSODs, like any other less "fatal" one?

    My server box at home is doing it occasionally and until I can pinpoint why, it's annoying to have to keep kicking it manually!


    Cheers

    Right click Computer in the start menu > Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery > untick Automatically Restart under the System Failure section. Or somthing like that, on me iPhone :)

    Yes I've done that, but it doesn't reboot automatically on the "Hardware malfunction" errors, unfortunately. :(

    I must have been very lucky over the years, as far as I knew there was only the one type of BSOD restart thingy, as in it bluescreens then restarts or does not? I'd that makes any sense.

    As said, probably dicky driver or RAM

    Just a thought, years ago I was using an old unidentified OEM motherboard in a file server that had bluescreen issues. CBA to find all the "proper" drivers so I just shoe-horned it together with best guess drivers. It worked but would fall over randomly, sometimes weeks apart. Tore my har out for ages changing RAM, disks, monitoring temps etc. Turned out to be the Realtek LAN driver. Ones reinstalled it was fine! That PC was on 24/7 for nearly 3 years as a file server, now it is in 24/7 use in my local as a jukebox :)
