Perform BSOD Repair to Restore Your Computer
BSOD stands for Blue Screen of Death and is related to Microsoft’s line of operating systems. Also known as a “Stop Error” this screen is bright blue and freezes computer operations or decreases functionality and can lead to loss of data or a computer crash. By taking the right steps, you can perform a BSOD Repair to get your system running again.
What Leads to the Need for a BSOD Repair?
The BSOD typically appears when there is a malfunction in the hardware or software, or there are multiple programs running at the same time. However, it can also result from a virus, poorly written drivers or corrupt drivers.
Because BSOD is the result of a critical error, the computer takes the “safe” action of rebooting the computer, which means data can be lost.
