If you are a Windows user for a sometime, possibly you might experience the Blue Screen of Death error. Are you wondering why it happens to my system often and What is the problem behind it?
Let me explain to you about this The BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). BSOD or Stop error or Dead Screen is the error screen will be shown to you when Windows OS encountering a critical error or non recoverable state. Obviously your computer will crash in that state. Normally the error screen is blue and so this problem got a name BSOD. Xbox users also got this problem “Green Screen of Death”. You Guessed right. Xbox error screen is green.
Generally the Windows will save all the error details in the file which is called “Dump file”. This file can be later used to assist the PC Technicians and troubleshooter to fix your system problem.
Why the Blue Screen of Death Occurs?
Blue screen errors are happened because of the poorly written Device Drivers. For example, If you have attached a Printer in your system, device driver software will control it from your computer. If any error happens in the printer Driver software, the Blue Screen of death occurs. Also, It may occur bugs in the software kernel, faulty RAM and Power Supplies, Fan Speed and Temperature.
If the problem occurs, all Windows operating system vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 display the Blue Screen of death error. However the Windows 8 operating system has a got a slight change in the error. Like Its predecessors, Windows 8 won’t display advanced technical information.
