    How to fix the blue screen of death(BSOD)? Today seenumagar teaches you how to fix the blue screen of death (BSOD) on windows computer. The BSOD is typically a result of improperly installed software, hardware, or settings, meaning that it is usually fixable. In some cases, though, the BSOD appears due to a corrupt operating system or hardware inside of the computer, meaning that you'll either need to reinstall your operating system or take your computer into a tech department to have it fixed.

    • Using general fixes

    1. Consider your recent actions on the computer. Did you install a piece of software, plug in a new piece of hardware, download custom drivers, or change the settings? If so, the recent change you made is probably the reason for the Blue Screen of Death, so repairing it will depend on that change.
    2. See if your computer is unusually hot. If you've been running your computer on high-performance settings for several hours—especially if the computer doesn't have adequate circulation or if you live in a particularly warm environment—the Blue Screen of Death can appear. If so, turn off your computer the first chance that you get and leave it off for a few hours.
    3. Run the Blue Screen of Death troubleshooter. Go to Settings > Update and Security > Troubleshoot and choose Blue Screen under Find and Fix Other Problems. The troubleshooter should check what went wrong and give fixes for it.
    4. Remove any unnecessary hardware. Things like USB flash drives, Ethernet or HDMI cables, controllers, printer cables, SD cards, and so on can be removed from your computer without impacting the computer's performance. Furthermore, flaws in hardware items such as these can trigger a Blue Screen of Death and continue to trigger it until they are removed.
    5. Wait for your computer to restart. Once the Blue Screen of Death appears, Windows will diagnose the problem, attempt to fix whatever the issue is, and then restart. If your computer restarts like usual and doesn't run into a Blue Screen error again, you can make some changes right from your desktop.
    6. Run a virus scan. While rare, sometimes viruses can trick your computer into thinking that it's malfunctioning, which can in turn cause the BSOD crash.

    • Restarting in safe mode
