    Hey everyone,
    Today, when I have been playing Warcraft III, randomly everything will freeze and I will get a blue screen of death error for a fraction of a second, then my laptop will restart.

    I am currently playing on a Macbook Pro with bootcamp for windows XP with service pack 2.

    any ideas why this is happening?

    first youll want to disable automatic restart after system error;

    1.

    Navigate to the Control Panel in Windows XP by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.
    2.

    In the Control Panel window, open System.

    Note: In Microsoft Windows XP, depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the System icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.
    3.

    In the System Properties window, click on the Advanced tab.
    4.

    Locate the Startup and Recovery area and click on the Settings button.
    5.

    In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.
    6.

    Click OK in the Startup and Recovery window.
    7.

    Click OK in the System Properties window.
    8.

    From now on, when a problem causes a BSOD or another major error that halts the system, the PC will not automatically reboot. Rebooting manually will be necessary.
