    To Nail the Culprit of Blue Screen of Death.

    Hi Windows XP & 7 Guru,

    Do you have any idea of the steps to nail the culprit of Blue Screen of Death i.e. BSoD in Windows XP & 7? What software tools do I need to conduct an analysis of the dump file created by the OS?


    Please enlighten and thank you.

    Please specify,
    Which OS is giving you the BSOD? (XP or 7)
    What are you doing when that happens?
    What are the error codes printed on the screen in the BSOD?

    If you're getting BSOD's in both XP and Win-7, then it's doubtful that the problem is actually
    in either of your OS's, but some hardware failure.

    It could be anything, from a bad power supply to dirty ram. Only a thorough inspection of
    that computer, (by an experienced technician) would find the problem.

    Good Luck, and Happy Holidays,

    First thing I would do is run a good stand alone virus scan in safe mode. Such as SuperAntiSpyware Standalone.
