Getting Blue Screen Error ?

The notorious Blue Screen of Death is a common term used by computer users to describe the error page that comes up every so often in Microsoft Windows. Though the screen rarely means "death" for the computer, it can be an annoyance, and -- if it begins to show up frequently -- it can be a sign that the computer is suffering from a serious problem. The screen typically appears when the computer has a system error and must shut down.

Software Errors
o Errors with software running on the computer are common causes of the Blue Screen of Death. When drivers are incorrectly installed (or not installed at all), Windows may encounter a system error and be unable to continue running the software. The solution usually lies in installing the correct drivers for the software or upgrading the computer so that it meets the minimum requirements of the software.

Hardware Errors
o Hardware errors, such as errors from ancillary products (an external CD drive, a flash drive, or even a printer) can cause the Blue Screen. This can be due to the hardware malfunctioning, or even be correlated to the user unplugging the hardware in the middle of an operation. Because of this, newer versions of Windows let the user know when it is safe to remove a piece of hardware.

Installation Errors
o The Blue Screen of Death commonly shows up during the installation process of a new piece of software. Indeed, installing Windows itself (such as to a freshly built computer or a re-install) can be a very critical time for errors. This can happen when the computer's hardware is incorrectly configured.

o If a computer is infected with a virus or too much spyware, the Blue Screen can appear upon startup. These malicious programs make changes to the registry in order to collect information on the user. Sometimes these changes make it impossible for Windows to boot correctly.

Random Errors
o Because they don't seem to follow any type of predictable pattern, random appearances of the Blue Screen of Death can be the most frustrating. The causes for these intermittent errors can be anything from low memory to a processor overheating. Unfortunately, these seemingly random errors are usually the surest signs of serious computer trouble. The best defense is to begin moving important files off the hard drive and consider getting a new computer.

How to get rid of it?

Once the blue screen error persist on your computer, it will not go away unless you fix it. The most common reason for the problem is errors in the computer registry. It contains all the instructions that instruct your program applications to run correctly.

Another possible reason for the blue screen error is due to bad sections in the RAM. Your CPU is regularly making calls to your Random Access Memory, and having bad sections inside can cause the computer to stop processing and show the blue screen.

1. How To Repair The Registry?
The blue screen problem can be easily fixed by using a registry cleaner, if your errors are caused by errors in the registry. This was exactly what I did to cure my computer. It does not only get rid of the blue screen, but you should also find that your computer performance will improve if you have never maintained your registry before.
To clean your registry, you will need to download a cleaner software and run a free scan to find all the errors. To download the top rated software that I used, you can visit my website link at the end of this article to learn more.

2. How To Fix The RAM?
If unfortunately, your computer problems are coming from the RAM, you will have to replace the faulty RAM stick. You can also test your current RAM stick by changing it with another working one, and see if the blue screen error returns. If the error still persists, it would mean that there is no problem with the RAM stick, and vice versa.

Common Blue Screen Error Codes

Blue Screen Error Code #1 – STOP 0x000000D1 or DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_OR_EQUAL
This error is the most commonly encountered blue screen error code by Windows users. It is thrown when one of the drivers on your computer attempts to access a memory location while the OS is using the same location. The normal troubleshooting method for this error code is to identify new software or hardware that has been installed or upgraded on your computer and remove it or regress to a previous version of the driver.

Blue Screen Error Code #2 – STOP 0x0000000A or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
This error occurs when a process of the OS kernel or a driver tries to access a memory location and does not have the correct permission-levels to do so. The device that creates the error is normally listed in the message and can give specific information on what to do to troubleshoot the problem. Many times a system service, new virus scanner, or backup program can be the result of the error.

Blue Screen Error Code #3 – STOP 0×00000050 or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
This error results from a system service or hardware driver that attempts to access data not resident in the computer memory. Many times antivirus software or remote control software can be the cause in addition to the installation of a new device driver on the computer.

Blue Screen Error Code #4 – STOP 0x000000C2 or BAD_POOL_CALLER
Normally occurs from a bug in a new software program or a device driver. It can also be triggered by failed hardware devices.

Blue Screen Error Code #5 – STOP OX000000ED or UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME
If Windows is not able to access the hard drive volume that contains the OS boot files this error will be thrown. It has been seen occasionally when updating the Vista OS when not using the appropriate IDE cable for the computer’s hard drive.

Blue Screen Error Code #6 – STOP 0x0000001E or KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
This error is thrown when the OS kernel finds an unknown or illegal process instruction that can be caused by a corrupt driver or hardware device. The error code will identify the device that causes the error.

Blue Screen Error Code #7 – STOP 0×00000024 or NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
The most common cause of this error is a failure of the hardware disk or disk controller. Many times it is thrown if the connection to the hard disk has become loose.

Blue Screen Error Code #8 – STOP 0x0000002E or DATA_BUS_ERROR
The physical memory of the computer has failed or become buggy. In recent years, this has been thrown by the memory in your computer’s video adapter. It can also be thrown if the motherboard has become damaged or the hard disk has been corrupted.

Blue Screen Error Code #9 – STOP 0x0000003F or NO_MORE_SYSTEM_PTES
This error occurs less frequently, but is commonly caused by a faulty computer data back-up program or faulty device driver.

Blue Screen Error Code #10 – STOP 0×00000077 or KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR
Your computer’s OS has tried to load or read kernel information from the computer’s virtual memory and could not find it at the expected address or location. It can be challenging to troubleshoot since it can be caused by a faulty hard drive, corrupted data, malware infection, or a disk controller that is not configured properly.
