You need to stop Windows from rebooting when a STOP error is encountered.
Once the blue screen of death is shown, you can check the meaning of the STOP error code.
Blue screen errors, or blue screen of death (BSOD) errors, are the most severe errors Windows can encounter.
Since Windows can not recover from this kernel level error, a blue screen is displayed with the error details.
Together with the filename of the driver or module, this will give an indication of the error cause.
Another option to analyze the cause of the blue screen error is to look at the Windows system event log or to debug the memory dump (minidump) that Windows created when the error occurred.
The cause of a BSOD error can be a temperature problem, a timing error, a resource conflict, hardware failure, a corrupt registry, a virus or simply a device incompatibility or driver error.
The first thing to do to analyze a blue screen error is to check the meaning of the STOP error code.
Reading the minidump requires a bit more technical knowledge, but Microsoft has tools to read the minidump.
