Blue screen error in windows 10 system.


That’s the BSOD screen you have, the one they called Blue Screen of Death. It normally appears after installing a program or adding hardware to your machine. The problem is usually with the drivers installed. The only difference is the message in your blue screen because in earlier versions of Microsoft Windows, you don’t get that few information.

Normally in earlier versions, the blue screen contains an entire screen of very complex details mentioning the system file where the error was triggered and other information. They probably trimmed it down on Windows 10 because only advanced users can understand that information and confuse average users.

Normally when you have a BSOD screen, the first thing you should do is to remember the last thing you did before it happened. If you installed a program before the BSOD screen hits you, you need to uninstall that program. If you installed a hardware on your motherboard before the BSOD screen appears, you need to remove it.

Once you remembered what you did prior to the occurrence of the problem, the next thing you should do is to restart your computer. Normally, after the blue screen appears, you can restart the machine. If your CPU has a reset button, press it to restart the CPU. Now, to boot your computer safely, when you restart your computer press F8 on your keyboard before the Windows logo appears.

When the Advanced Options Menu screen appears, select “Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)”.

Hit Enter twice to start your computer with that option. Once you successfully booted the machine, uninstall the program you last installed. Click Start, Control Panel, and then “Add or Remove Programs”. Scroll down on the list then select the program you last installed. Click Remove or Uninstall then restart your computer.

In case you installed a hardware on your motherboard, uninstall the driver from the Control Panel by doing the same steps. That should fix your problem with BSoD or the Blue Screen of Death.
