How to Troubleshoot Windows 10 Crashing With a Blue Screen?
The BSOD is an error screen display which can occur within Windows 10 for a variety of reasons.
Types of BSODs
These are the top-level reasons for a BSOD:
- Driver Conflicts — Driver conflicts occur when two or more drivers (software meant to use and control hardware) cannot work with one another properly. This can also occur when multiple drivers are installed for the same device without uninstalling a previous version.
- Hardware Conflicts — Hardware tweaks can lead to BSODs. Unsafely overclocking a PC, for example, can immediately create a BSOD. However, BSODs can also occur if your RAM sticks are improperly placed or if a piece of hardware is beginning to fail.
- Operating System (OS) Errors — From time to time, user error or malware can chip away at the vital files of your OS. This can also occur when using an Insider Preview of Windows. Crucial missing files may lead to a detrimental error, causing your PC to enter a BSOD loop wherein you receive a blue screen every time your computer turns on.
