  • Uploaded on

If you have a computer, you must have encountered the problem of blue screen of death. If not, then either you are fortunate or you are running MAC or LINUX as this is the only other way to avoid blue screen of death. BSOD is generally caused due to the bad drivers and the softwares that have to do with the hardware you are plugging in your computer.

Presentation Transcript


  • A Blue Screen occurs when Windows encounters a “STOP Error.” This critical failure causes Windows to crash and stop working. The only thing Windows can do is stop the computer and restart it. This can lead to data loss, as programmers don’t have a chance to save their open data. Generally, it is recommended to continuously save data, as it makes sure blue screen of death or any other type of error don’t results in data loss.There are some steps to fix BSOD:-

  • Step 1. Undo the changes you made and test again for the STOP Error. Depending on what changes you made, some solutions may include:

  • Startup using Last Known Good Configuration to undo recent registry and driver changes.

  • Using System Restore to undo recent system changes.

  • Rolling back device driver to the version prior to your driver update.

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 9. Make sure all internal cables, cards, and other components are installed and seated properly. Hardware that's not firmly in place can cause Blue Screen of Death. Try reseating the following and then test for the STOP message again:

  • Reseat all internal data and power cables

  • Reseat the memory modules

  • Reseat any expansion cards

  • Step 10. Perform diagnostic tests on all hardware you're able to test. It's highly likely that the root cause of any given Blue Screen of Death is a failing piece of hardware:

  • Test your system memory

  • Test your hard disk drive

  • If a test fails, replace the memory or the hard drive as soon as possible.

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.
