BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH – MIAMI

BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH-MIAMI

The Blue Screen of Death originated during OS-2 pre-release development activities at Lattice Inc, the makers of an early Windows and OS/2 C compiler. During porting of Lattice’s other tools, developers encountered the stop screen when null pointers were dereferenced either in application code or when unexpectedly passed into system API calls. BSoDs have been present in all Windows based operating systems since Windows 3.1. The BSoDs can be caused by poorly written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware, such as faulty memory, power supply issues, overheating of components, or hardware running beyond its specification limits.

The most important Blue Screen of Death troubleshooting step you can take is to ask yourself what you just did, like did you just install a new program or a piece of hardware, update a driver, install an update. If so, there’s a very good chance that the change you made caused the BSOD, the solution is undo the change you made and test again for the STOP Error, remember the blue screens are generally caused by problems with your computer’s hardware or issues with its hardware driver software.

HERE IS A LIST OF HARDWARE FAILURE THAT CAUSE THE BSOD :

BAD MOTHERBOARD
BAD POWER SUPPLY
BAD MEMORY
VIRUS OR SPYWARE
OS IS CORRUPTED
COMPUTER IS OVERHEATING
BAD OR WRONG DRIVERS

A Blue Screen Error or STOP error, also known as the Blue Screen of Death, can be a frustrating experience, the error message almost never clearly states what is wrong, and they seem to strike at random and if the system has two RAM modules, take one out at a time and try to reproduce the error, if it works when one is in and not the other, you may simply need to replace that module and another common cause would be file changes, such as viruses, driver updates, etc. If an incorrect or faulty driver is installed, or a virus makes some bad system file changes, the blue screen of death will likely let you know about it. Use this Tool -BlueScreenView and the BlueScreenView scans all your minidump files created during blue screen of death crashes, and displays the information about all crashes in one table.

HERE IS STEPS TO FIX THE BSOD :

REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER
Sometimes, the problem is simple enough that the computer can fix itself while loading your OS
REBOOT-F8
Choose the last known good configuration
UNINSTALL ANY NEW SOFTWARE
Click-START menu, click-Control Panel, click on Add or Remove Programs. Find the new program you installed, click on it and click on Change/Remove. Follow the instructions on the Uninstall Wizard that pops up.

In recent years sightings of the BSOD have become less common in Windows operating systems, as Microsoft has stamped out some of the rogue code commonly responsible, drivers are the code that allow an operating system to control a hardware device, such as a video card, handling commands between the device and the core of an operating system, the kernel, drivers can be particularly difficult to debug, as their code will be written by different companies and is generally not open source, so is opaque to Microsoft, their interactions can also be rather complex, with drivers commonly interoperating with a stack of other drivers, however, as you’ve probably already found out, rebooting isn’t always the magic cure all. It can be a gut-wrenching feeling, staring at the incomprehensible blue screen with all its numbers and codes.
