Found interesting use for video recorder in my phone for troubleshooting

A 'blue screen of death' was popping up on one of my old notebooks that the kids use. Problem was that the message flashed for only milliseconds and then the system would reboot. I went through this about a half dozen times and just could not read what the error was.

I broke out my iPhone and video taped this sequence. Then played it back and was able to find the frame where the error message displayed and was able to read what the error was. Take a look at the clip. If you stop it at the correct frame you will see that it looks like sad news about the hard drive.
