Lessons learned - BSOD Windows XP

For all of you who run servers on their Windows XP machine and get a blue screen of death every once in a while - this maybe something to check out:

In order to optimzie the setup of my server, I went to the control panel, system settings and under performance, change the option for optimizing system performance from applications to services.

Nothing happened for a couple of days. Then more often, my machine cold crashed with a blue screen of death (BSOD), blaiming videopro.sys for it.

So I started researching and updating drivers and the likes. but nothing fixed the problem.

Just for laugh and giggles, I switched back the performance setting to applications instead of services.. and voila .. no BSODs anymore !

Hope this helps,
