How to fix blue screen errors on your Windows computers.
Blue Screen errors (also sometimes called black screen errors or STOP code errors) can occur if a serious problem causes Windows to shut down or restart unexpectedly. You might see a message that says, “Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.” These errors can be caused by both hardware and software problems. If you added new hardware to your PC before the Blue Screen error, shut down your PC, remove the hardware, and try restarting. If you’re having trouble restarting, you can start (boot) your PC in safe mode.
How to troubleshoot blue screen during an upgrade
A lot of times you’ll run into a BSOD as you try to upgrade to a new version of Windows 10. Typically, the reason could be a result of a third-party application, such as antivirus and security software, or incompatible hardware.
When you get the blue screen error, your system will automatically roll back any changes and restore the previous version of the OS.
You can troubleshoot this problem while trying to upgrade by doing the following.
“blue screen” (or “stop error”) could appear while upgrading to a new version of the OS, when starting your computer, or just “out of the blue” when using Windows 10.
The biggest issue with a blue screen is that it’s literally a screen with a blue background and a sad face with not enough information to tell you the problem.
You’ll usually (not always) see a message that reads: “Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We’re just collecting some error info, and then we’ll restart for you.” And a general error code (HAL_INITIALIZATION_FAID, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE_AREA, CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED or BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO, for example) that can give you a clue of the issue. But most of the time it’s not enough to fix the problem.
Fortunately, you can often narrow down the blue screen to a problem with an update for Windows or a bad driver, incompatible software, or hardware you recently configured.
