Know About Window Blue Screen of Death- How to Resolve from this Error
Blue Screen of Death  (BSOD) is another name for Windows general protection fault error. This hard drive error is generated by the operating system and is generally followed by a system reboot. A BSOD indicates that one of your system processes crashed or terminated abruptly. It is divided into four parts, i.e. error name, troubleshooting advice, memory dump, and STOP code. The STOP code (displayed in hexadecimal form) helps to identify the cause of the error. The instructions above the STOP code (troubleshooting advice) are recommended. These recommended actions can determine and fix the problem.

How to Fix Blue Screen Of Death?

When you encounter BSOD, the operating system creates a memory dump. This is a file saved on your hard drive that contains information about the modules which were about to load before the crash. The memory dump is an important file for debugging purposes.
 
As a part of troubleshooting the problem, you should first recall the changes that you did to the system prior to receiving the STOP error. It is very likely that this change triggered the error. In this case, you need to undo those changes and then restart the system. You can undo the changes manually or use the ‘System Restore’ feature. In addition to this, check the available space on your Windows partition. If this partition contains insufficient free space, a range of problems can occur, including data corruption.
 
You can check for hardware failures by performing hardware diagnostics tests. Also, make sure that the drivers for the hardware are up-to-date. To fix hardware failures, replace the damaged hardware component and update the firmware. If you find that the problem occurred due to a software issue, you should reinstall the program. If you have no luck here and the error pops up again; boot the system using the ‘Last Known Good Configuration’ option. This will help you automatically undo all changes done since the last time the system rebooted adequately.
 
If your PC restarts immediately after the occurrence of a BSOD disable the automatic restart on system failure option in the ‘Startup and Recovery’ section after double-clicking ‘System’ in Control Panel.  If the above tips and recommended fixes fail, you should contact Microsoft Support.
