Fix Blue Screen of Death Error in Windows Vista

Windows users often experience a blue screen error with white text on it after installing new hardware/program or due to faulty driver issue. The blue screen, also called as Blue Screen of Death, is a STOP error screen that appears when Windows finds that there is a fatal error it cannot recover from and starts rebooting, causing data loss or system crash etc.
With the launch of Windows Vista, a successor to Windows XP, many users might have paid their last tribute (despite the fact that they were sick to bones whenever the problem occurred) to BSOD error thinking they would never face it again. But it seems like Microsoft has not had a chance to work out the operating system error well other than the fact that it has been improved slightly. Now BSOD error is mostly caused by software slagheap in Windows Vista but still there is no escape from system crash problem.

Common reasons of BSOD error:-

The BSOD error can occur due to several reasons including running multiple programs at a time; Windows registry errors; wrong/inappropriate installation of hardware/software; faulty RAM stick; virus infection; and faulty/poorly- written driver(s) among other miscellaneous problems.

Note:- Before following the steps below, I do not recommend you doing this unless you are comfortable editing the Windows Settings. I will not responsible for any damage that may be caused to your PC after editing the settings by following the steps below. You proceed at your own risk or may take help from Microsoft Certified Technician

Procedure to Fix Blue Screen of Death Error:-

Reboot the PC; it is the simplest method to fix the problem unless there is a severe issue.
If you lately installed a new hardware (such as audio/video driver, printer etc.), remove it and then reboot the PC. For new software, reboot PC in ‘Safe Mode’ and uninstall it. To access ‘Safe Mode’, you need to start and continuously tap the ‘F8’ key on the keyboard while the Windows is rebooting (start tapping the key before the Windows logo appears).

If your PC has low RAM, then open fewer programs at a time or add more RAM to your PC.

Replace the faulty/dead RAM with a new one.

Windows registry is a database that stores all the data related to hardware/software configurations. If your registry has a problem, you might don’t know if it actually has a problem, run registry repair tool to scan and fix registry error problems. Whenever, you uninstall any program from your PC, do remember to clean its registry entries from the registry editor.

Replace the faulty driver, and always install latest and compatible drivers from your vendor or publisher’s website.

Update your antivirus, and run a full scan to check if your PC has not caught virus infection. If the scan brings up any malicious items, remove them. You don’t have to remove viruses manually because your antivirus program will automatically do that. You can look for the details of the deleted items in history or whatever the option is there.

Always check that you don’t have too many security programs running on your PC as it may result into software conflict and ultimately the BSOD error. For example, you have Microsoft Security Essentials as well as a firewall program like Zone Alarm from Check Point installed on your PC. You will have to remove either of the programs for smooth functioning of your PC.

Or click on ‘Start’ menu, click on ‘Run’, when the windows appears, type ‘compmgmt.msc’ (without quotes) in the ‘Run’ window, click on ‘OK’ or hit ‘Enter’ on the keyboard.

This open up the ‘Computer Management’ utility window, click ‘Event Viewer’ option in ‘System Tools’ and wait for the window to be populated with log entries.

Under ‘Summary of Administrative Events’ tab, click on ‘+” (the plus sign) to spread out the categories and search for the current/recent errors when the BSOD occurred. There would be to important categories to look for ‘Error’ and ‘Critical’.

Check the entries and double click on them to find the related information about the errors and their solution.

The above mentioned instructions should help you get rid of BSOD problem at ease. However, if you face any problem, you can call online technical support service to help you fix this at the comfort of your home.

The vast majority of windows errors are caused by corrupted entries in Windows registry. These registry entries are responsible for how windows manages programs that are installed and all information stored on the computer. If the registry fails, so will the windows.
