Hello! While working on PC today, I suddenly got a blue screen on the desktop and the operating system failed to respond further. I had to turn off the PC with the help of CPU. The blue screen had a line saying STOP and some code in front of it. I searched and found that it is BSOD error code. What does that mean?

Blue screen you got is generalized as BSOD i.e. ‘blue screen of death.’ It appears in systems working with Windows operating system. It appears on the desktop when the system experiences serious faults. They can be like system crash, kernel error reports or operating system failure. This screen is a sign indicating that the system has stopped due to some error.


The blue screen you got must be having something as shown in the above image. The information displayed contains a code which tells the type of error occurred. A memory dump file is created at the instant of an error in the system. The file contains a copy of RAM and other system related details. Depending on the OS version you were working in, the memory dump will be used to debug the error. You can debug the error if possible for you or can take help from a related person.

You’re right. The blue screen error you encountered is the BSOD or the blue screen of death. There are several reasons why a blue screen appears and one is hardware change. If you installed a new device on your computer, the possible cause of the blue screen is the driver you installed for the device. You need to uninstall it from your system to fix the problem.

If you need to install and use the new device, try looking for an updated driver that is compatible with your operating system. Another cause is an application you installed. If you installed a new program, the possible cause is compatibility. You need to uninstall the program to restore the system back to normal.

If you need to use the application, install the latest version that supports your operating system. On the other hand, if the one that gave the error is the latest version, try looking for an older version to install that works on your computer.
