Blue Screen of Death also known as the BSoD, the blue screen of death appears when windows crashes or locks up. It's actually a Windows stop screen, and is designed to do two things: tell you the reason for the error, and how to go about doing it. The color blue was also chosen for a reason because of its relaxing effect on people. Though Blue Screens are difficult to decipher, all the information you need to figure out what caused the BSoD initially is right in front of you in blue and white, and that's where this report is useful to explain to you how to go about understanding the blue screen error details, so you can cause the error that's causing them. .
This research paper consists of four parts.
1. History of (BS0D).
2. What causes (BSoD) Blue Screen of Death.
3. Steps taken to resolve blue screen of Death.
The first section gives a brief run through on the history of the BSoD, where it was first encountered, who encountered it, who went about naming it and so forth. The second section goes in detail to explain what causes the BSoD to occur, when does it occur, and why does it happen. The third and final section will explain to the reader how to go about fixing the BSoD and how to prevent it from happening again and tips on how to even stop it before it even happens. The term 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. .
During reviews of progress and feedback to IBM Austin, the developers described the stop screen as the Blue Screen of Death to denote the screen and the finality of the experience. BSoDs have been present in all Windows-based operating systems since Windows 3.1. 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.
