Blue Screen Repair for Every Computer Owner
Blue screen repair is something almost every computer owner will face at one time or another. While known by some as the blue screen of death, repairing a blue screen error is often much easier than it seems.
What is Blue Screen Repair?
Blue screen repair is needed if you encounter errors that shut down your Microsoft Windows operating system or cause it to restart without notice. These are also referred to as STOP errors. Essentially you have a bright blue screen with the disconcerting message “beginning of physical memory dump.”
What Causes You To Need Blue Screen Repair?
Blue screen errors occur when there is a software or hardware problem that is unrecoverable. Essentially the system shuts down in order to avoid your computer being damaged. Typically the issue is one to do with memory, such as a memory allocation error, DLL error, COM error or RAM problems. However, there are a variety of things that can actually cause blue screen errors.
How to Do Blue Screen Repair?
Blue screen repairs always start with the screen itself. The blue screen that you see is providing you with information you need. What you see are printed there are diagnostic messages.
- When you encounter the scary blue screen, immediately shut down your computer and wait a few minutes before turning it back on. This will minimize memory loss.
- Once you restart the computer, begin by reading the diagnostic messages on the screen. Look for the code you see on the blue screen on a list of Windows bugcheck codes.

- If you are still encountering blue screen errors, analyze any recent changes you have made in the settings of your computer. They are likely the cause. Click on the Start button on the bottom left of the screen.
- Choose Settings.
- Select Control Panel.
- Click on Add or Remove Programs.
- At that window, undo anything you have recently done to test for the cause of your blue screen error.
- Following any adding or removing Windows components or programs, always shut down and restart your computer.
- If the problem persists, remove any external hardware devices and attempt regular use of your computer to see if incompatible hardware is causing the problem.
If you have used these remedies to do your blue screen repair but the problem is not solved, your issue is likely a hardware problem that requires a professional computer technician. Good luck with your blue screen repairs.
