My computer keeps crashing and I end up getting a Blue Screen. How can I fix this?

A Blue Screen (or BSOD) can be caused by a whole host of hardware and software problems. In order to fix a Blue Screen problem, you must first diagnose the cause. Here are a few checks you can perform if you’re computer is experiencing a Blue Screen problem:

  • Analyse your “memory dump” or “.dmp” files to see if they give any indication as to what your problem is.

  • Run Checkdisk to see if it finds any disk errors.

  • Using command prompt, run the “sfc /scannow” command to check for any operating system file errors.

  • Check your Device Manager for any warning or yellow exclamation marks that might indicate hardware device failure.

  • Perform a System Restore to restore your systems registry back to a time when your computer was fully working.

  • Some Blue Screen problems will be caused by a failing graphics card or corrupt driver, so make sure that you’re using an up-to-date graphics card driver

  • Inspect your motherboard for any signs of physical damage.

  • Make sure that all internal cables, memory modules and expansion cards are all tightly secured.

  • In certain cases, your system’s PSU (power supply unit) will be distributing poor quality or insufficient wattage to your system’s components and this can cause a Blue Screen problem. (This is especially true if your PC has had a lot of upgrades). Try swapping your PSU for another more powerful unit. A replacement PSU will sometimes fix a Blue Screen problem.
