A blue screen of death (BSoD), officially known as a stop error or blue screen error, is an error screen that the Windows operating system displays in the event of a fatal system error. It indicates a system crash, in which the operating system has reached a critical condition where it can no longer operate safely, e.g., hardware failure or an unexpected termination of a crucial process.
We all know that. A blue screen error, known as a STOP error or a blue screen of death can be a frustrating experience. The error message usually never exactly writes what is wrong, and in addition, it often seems that blue death occurs by chance. In this article, we will describe how to detect the error and how to resolve the blue screen of death problem.
Remember if you have changed anything recently. The most common cause of blue death is a recent change in your computer's settings or hardware. This often causes new drivers to be installed or existing drivers to be updated. Drivers are software that allows hardware to communicate with Windows. If you regularly create a restore point, try resetting your computer to the last restore point, when everything still worked correctly. It may or may not help.
Check your computer hardware. This is because blue death is sometimes caused by bad or faulty connections inside the computer. Open the computer case and make sure that all cables are securely connected and that all cards are firmly inserted in their slots.
Check the computer temperature. Hardware failure can also cause overheating. One of the most common parts of a computer that overheats is the graphics card. The second most common culprit is the processor (CPU).
Test RAM. A common culprit for system failure is a bad RAM module. You can easily recognize a RAM failure, the system is very unstable. You can test your computer's RAM with a program called "memtest86". It is available for free on the Internet. But to run it, you must first burn it to a bootable CD.
Test the hard drive. Run the “chkdsk” function, which will look for errors or potential problems on the hard disk. Damaged files can also cause hard disk failure and subsequent blue death. To start the chkdsk (check disk) function, open My Computer and right-click on the disk you want to scan.
Disconnect all possible components. One way to narrow down your search for what is causing your system to fail is to remove everything you don't need to start your computer. This is how you will know that if the problem disappears, it is caused by one of the disconnected components.
