Specs: Windows XP Home SP3, 1 GB RAM
The BSOD keeps appearing during the splash screen at startup. I tried Safe Mode and all the other startup options, but none of them works.

This started happening after last night, when a power outage occurred while my computer was shutting down.

Also, I can't seem to find the option to disable automatic restart; hence I don't know the error code yet.

"I can't seem to find the option to disable automatic restart"

If you can't boot into Windows, you can't disable it.

Right click on My Computer, then click Properties. Click the Advanced tab, then the Settings button under Start & Recovery. Under System Failure, uncheck the box next to Automatically Restart, then click OK.

You could use a live bootable CD, such as the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows, to disable automatic restart without having to boot into Windows. You could also check for certain hardware problems as well, such as the hard drive health or the RAM(run memtest for that).

Incorrect in that you have to boot into windows to disable automatic restart. This option appears, as well, in the startup options along with safe mode etc. If I understand the original poster's message that option is missing from the startup options. If that is the case, use kx5m2g suggestion to disable automatic restart on system failure.
