Title: How To Fix Blue Screen of Death -DigitalBulls

How To Fix Blue Screen Of Death
Method 1. Diagnosing the Problem
Step 1. Determine if you changed anything
recently. The most common cause of the Blue
Screen is a recent change in your computers
settings or hardware.
Step 2. Check your computers internal hardware.
Sometimes, a poor connection inside the computer
can cause a Blue Screen. Open your case and check
to make sure that all the cables are firmly
connected and that any cards are seated firmly in
their sockets.
Step 3. Check your Computer Temperature.
Overheating can lead to your hardware
malfunctioning. One of the most common components
to overheat is the graphics card. The second most
likely culprit is the CPU.
Step 4. Test Your RAM
A common culprit in system crashes is a bad stick
of RAM. When RAM fails, it causes the system to
become unstable. You can test your RAM by using a
program called memtest86. This program is
available for free online, and is run by burning
it to a bootable CD.
Step 5. Test Your Hard Drive.
Run the chkdsk on your hard drive to scan for
errors and fix potential problems. A failing hard
drive can cause Blue Screens due to corrupted
files. To run chkdsk, open Computer/My Computer
and right-click the disk that you want to scan.
Select Properties.
Step 6. Strip your computer down to the
One way to narrow down what is causing the
problem is to remove everything that is not
essential for the PC to run. This way, if the
error goes away, you know that it was one of the
pieces that you disconnected.
Method 2. Fixing the Problem
Boot into Safe Mode. If Windows wont start
because of Blue Screen errors, try booting into
Safe Mode try fixing the problem. As the computer
is booting, repeatedly hit the F8 key until the
Windows boot menu appears. Select Safe Mode with
Networking to boot into a stripped down version
of Windows. This will allow you to access your
Device Manager, the internet, and other system
Run a virus scan. Sometimes viruses and malware
are at the root of a Blue Screen problem. Make
sure that you have the latest antivirus software
installed, and perform a full system scan to find
anything that could be causing problems.
Perform a Repair Installation of Windows. This is
a quick alternative to completely reinstalling
Windows, as it only copies system files to your
computer. This is useful if an essential file has
become corrupt and is causing your computer to
Roll back your drivers. If the cause of the
problem is hardware, the first thing you should
try is rolling back drivers. This process will
install an older version of the driver software,
potentially getting rid of the conflict.
Roll back Windows updates. If rolling back the
driver did not fix the problem, consider
restoring to an older, working installation of
Windows. This will let you determine if the
Windows updates are responsible for your Blue
Clear up hard disk space. If Windows does not
have enough space on the disk it is installed on,
it can cause system failures. Remove unnecessary
files and programs if you have less than 15 of
your hard disk free.
Apply new updates and drivers. If rolling back
drivers and updates didnt work, installing the
newest versions and updates (if they werent
installed already) may fix your problem. Check
your Windows Update program to see if there are
any new system and hardware updates available.
Reinstall Windows. If you cannot track down the
error, you can try a full reinstallation of
Windows as a way to reset your computer. Make
sure that you have all of your important files
backed up before doing so, as your hard drive
will be formatted for the install process.
Replace faulty hardware. If driver and update
rollbacks do not solve your problem, you may need
to remove and replace your hardware. Replacing
anything other than the RAM or hard drive on a
laptop can be difficult and expensive.
