Step 2. Check that there's enough free space left on the drive, Windows is installed on. Blue Screen of Death and other serious issues like data corruption, can occur if enough free space is not there on your primary partition used for the Windows operating system.
Step 3. Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death, especially the ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
Step 4. Apply all available Windows service packs and other updates. Microsoft regularly releases patches and service packs for their operating systems that may contain fixes for the cause of your BSOD.
Step 5. Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screen of Death are hardware or driver related, so updated drivers can fix the cause of the STOP error.
Step 6. Check the System and Application logs in Event Viewer for errors or warnings that may provide more clues about the cause of BSOD.
Step 7. Reset hardware settings to ‘default’ in the Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so, the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set to default. Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause Blue Screen of Death.
Step 8. Return BIOS settings to their default levels. Overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
Step 11. Update your BIOS. In some situations, outdated BIOS could cause a Blue Screen of Death due to certain incompatibilities.
Step 12. Start your PC with essential hardware only. A useful troubleshooting step in many situations, including BSOD issues is to start your computer with minimum hardware necessary to run the operating system. If your computer starts successfully, it proves that one of the removed hardware devices was the cause of the STOP message.
