What is the bluescreen of death on a computer

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

A few days ago, I have encountered a problem. Don't remember exactly what I was doing, but my laptop just went into the bluescreen of death as I have found out it is called. I just turned it on again, but after a while, the screen came back. This is the first time I have faced this issue, and I have absolutely no idea why this is happening. The laptop is an Acer and it has all driver up to date and everything. Can you please explain to me what is the bluescreen and how to get rid of it? Any method or help would be appreciated.

Hi Steve,

The blue screen of death also called a stop error, will appear when an issue is serious, this BSOD is usually a hardware driver related issue.

First analyze the problem of the blue screen, when the blue screen appears again just bowed down the following information from the display like error message or some numbers it will display.

Just enter the error in the Google and try to make the sense what’s the error is about and follow these steps which may make you out of the problem.

If Windows won’t start because of blue screen errors, try to boot into safe mode so that you can try to fix the problem. When the computer is rooting repeatedly hit F8 key until the Windows boot menu appears. Start safe mode with networking to boot into a stripped down version of Windows, this Carlos you to access device manager, Internet and other system tools.

Run a virus scan- sometimes viruses and malware are the root of a blue screen problem. Make sure that you have the latest antivirus software in your PC and perform a full system scan to find anything.

When you are in safe mode perform a spyware and Adware virus scan, this is the best time to these apps because any virus tried to disable the in normal mode will likely be disabled at that point, I suggest you to use Spybot’s spyware Search and Destroyer. This is one of the best spyware remover for home users.

Another very useful scan to run and check for any order registry entries or problems. An open source app that can check your registry for your known problems is little-registry-cleaner, it is highly recommended by most users.

And a last thing to do is go to boot menu screen by pressing continuously F8,at the restart point, and select last known good configuration. This will to retrieve to boot Windows create a successful boot took place, this will resolve’s the issue without any further troubleshooting.

Basically, the blue screen error is not the kind of error that will appear out of nowhere. It appears because a fault in the system was encountered that caused the system to fatally crash. By default, Microsoft Windows has a feature that automatically restarts the computer in the event that the system suddenly stopped.

You can access this feature by right-clicking “My Computer” and selecting “Properties” then selecting the “Advanced” tab and then clicking “Settings” in “Startup and Recovery” section.

The feature is listed under “System failure” section the box named “Automatically restart.”

Automatic restart feature

Now, when this option is disabled or unchecked and your computer suddenly crashed, instead of automatically restarting the system it will go to the blue screen error similar to the screen you saw. This type of blue screen error is not serious and can be fixed by simply restarting the computer.

But if this doesn’t fix the problem, remember the last thing you did before the error happened like were you installing a program or you added a new hardware on your motherboard, things like that. If you performed either a software or hardware installation, try removing it and then restart the computer.

But if you can’t remember what you were doing, I guess you should try the “System Restore” and restore your computer to a previous state or restore point.
