Right from the Windows NT 3.1 this error called BSoDs has surfaced and infected even to the latest Windows. This Blue screen error has another name, and that is stop error.
The screen problem can cause your PC to shut down or sometimes restart against your will. During the process, the start menu and taskbar would be not visible or appear blurred. All that you will see is a message telling you that an unexpected error crept into your window system and a restart is called for.
This error is also popularly known as BSOD (Blue Screen of Death); this fatal error causes a total system crash. The safety of the operating system (OS) is at stake as well. The reasons for the Blue:
Screen error can be due to manifold reasons like:
- Poorly configured device drivers
- Malfunctioning hardware,
- Insufficient memory,
- Erratic power sources
- Components overheating
- Over loaded hardware.
- Critical boot loader error,
- Coprocessor Error Fault
- Alignment Check Fault
- Hardware incompatibilities
- Damaged hardware
While Window 7 is still having the menace of Blue Screen, Window 8 onwards, the occurrence of the problem has come down drastically, On Window 10 (which uses cerulean background) the problem is almost nil. Window 10 is featuring a green error screen.
Whenever there is a fault occurs windows will create a memory dump file. Debugging of the dump file can be debugged at a later stage. The RAM or physical memory capacity will be deciding factor in debugging with a kernel debugger running on a different computer.
Analysing the contents of memory can find out the source from where the problem did crop up. The critical boot loader error will make the boot partition error faulty and generally the error will be shown as STOP 0x0000007B (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE.)
Since no memory dump is saved, to resolve the problem the repair tools found on the Windows installation disc will be required, once in a reinstallation of Window as well. There is separate identity given to specific errors.
Identifying or diagnosing the problem is critical in isolating the culprit. The BSoD in Windows 8 is a sad emoticon whereas Windows 10 Build 14393 added a QR code for quick troubleshooting.
The annoying blue screen syndrome slowly wipes off if it does not appear in less frequency in the latest Window version. The Red Screen of Death in Windows Vista is a classic example.
A few tips to solve the blue screen problem are as follows.
- The blue screen problem emanating from improperly installed software, hardware, or settings can be fixed by re-installation of the Windows.
- In case if you have installed any new patch up or other third party software, try to remove them.
- If there is abnormal heating takes place, give the system a few hours rest.
- Also, remove all unnecessary hardware.
- Try a virus scan and removal.
- Run the Blue Screen of Death trouble-shooter (Settings > Update and Security > Troubleshoot and choose Blue Screen under Find and Fix Other Problems). If the virus scan sends software settings suggestions (e.g., battery life) to you during the scan, try implementing them. A flawed setting may cause the BSOD to appear.
- Try to restart in safe mode
