Blue Screen of Death

By: Sherman Choo

The Blue Screen Of Death occurs suddenly. Your PC screen transforms into a blue screen that asks if you have seen the screen before and that you can reboot your computer to see if the message goes away. This is as simple as pressing the reset button.

The Blue Screen of Death is a cause of one or many factors. Trying to locate the cause of the error isn't the easiest. From my experience, the Blue Screen death occurs because of the below.

1. Faulty Random Access Memory

Random Access Memory is also called as RAM. RAM is in the form of 1 Gigabyte or 512 MB. The more RAM you have, the quicker your applications will load. Data and functions are stored in the RAM, allowing quick recall of data by the CPU. When some modules of the RAM are non-functioning and the CPU tries to access those areas, the blue screen death will pop up.

2. Corrupt Registry

A corrupt registry happens over time when we install many different types of software in our computer. This will include printer drivers, monitor drivers, camera devices, scanners. The registry keeps track of everything that's within our computer. When this part of the computer turns corrupt, the blue screen of death appears, randomly, even while the computer is at rest, or worse when you're in the midst of typing a word document.

3. Faulty Power Supply

This is the power supply of your computer. If this is not working well, it needs to be replaced.

In most cases, just installing a registry cleaner does the trick for me. Not only that, it speeds up the computer as well. After running the registry cleaner, you'll want to run defrag as well to speed up your harddisk. Running a registry cleaner and defragmentation will get your computer running quickly.
