    You could try going into the control panel and under System > Advanced > Startup and Recovery "Settings" > and take the check mark out of "Automatically Restart" under the "System Failure" heading. This way when the error occurs the computer will not restart if it is a software issue, instead it will display the error. Then you can go from there....
