Default Win 10 BSOD

Since getting Windows 10 I've experienced two BSODs. Running Windows 7 for so long I had forgotten that such a thing exists. I must say, though, that MS has made these screens much more attractive.

Many years ago I posted a tutorial about how to change the color of the BSOD. So, for example, if one would prefer a GSOD or a RSOD this can be done. I used to change the color because I was tired of getting a BSOD, and wanted to spice things up. If Windows 10 keeps acting up, I might look into this again.

LOL!!! I never thought of changing the color! How clever of you...


I take it that the Win10's BSOD isn't the "Something's Wrong" screen--even looking at screen shots (never seen one in real life), that just pisses me off so much because it's so damned useless--on the order of the frowny face that I read a mac sometimes displays.


My guess is that you were able to recover from the BSOD?

Win 10 recovered from the two I got so far. It also told me where the problem was, and gathered information in case I wanted to use it. And I looked up on the Internet how to address the problem.

I've had one since switching to Win 10 a bit over a year ago.

Apparently caused by a media player on a website that crashed Firefox.

Wow! I'm impressed because in my experience, the BSOD screens are not very informative but of course, that is tempered by the fact that it BSOD'd in the first place...'-}}

That must have been some media player to cause a BSOD...

It is not an uncommon occurrence, it is caused by a GPU/device driver incompatibility.

Ahhhh...exacerbated (from what I've read) by Win10's (default) insistence on replacing drivers willy-nilly...'-}}
