Blue Screen of Death Repair

The dreaded blue screen of death is something that computer users never want to see. Seeing a blue screen upon the booting of your system typically leads to a few unfortunate assumptions that you can make about your computer. You can likely go ahead and infer that there is a problem or two with your hardware, whenever you encounter a blue screen. Low-level software which is running in the Windows kernel may also play a factor when experiencing a blue screen. A blue screen ultimately occurs when Windows is facing a “STOP Error.” This is often a painfully excruciating blow to your Operating System, which causes your system to crash and stop working.

Facing repetitive blue screen errors are some of the most frustrating situations that a user can experience. Especially while you’re in the midst of working on an important project, and the blue screen of death strikes again – you can almost go crazy as a result of this occurrence.

Restoring your system through the use of System Restore is sometimes an effective solution. This should bring your system to a good previous state, when your computer potentially worked flawlessly. You just have to select the date which you last remember your system working perfectly, without ever displaying a blue screen error.
