Fix Win7 Blue Screen Errors Today
July 13, 2010
This tutorial is going to show you how to fix 99% of blue screen errors that occur on Windows 7, by using the 3 steps below:
1) Restart Your PC In “Safe Mode” - Safe Mode is a special type of “mode” that Microsoft introduced for Windows, whereby you can load up your PC without any of the damaging drivers / software that often causes your system to run slower. Safe mode is a great way to test whether your PC is suffering from hardware or software problems as it will load up your PC without any software on it. Because many blue screen errors are caused by hardware problems, you should first start your PC in safe mode to see if the error shows without any software running. To do this, just restart your affected PC and then press F8 before it loads. This will bring up a “boot options” screen, where you should select “Safe Mode”. When that loads, let your computer run and if it crashes, you should see a technician because it’s likely a hardware error.
2) Reinstall Any Programs Causing An Error - If your PC doesn’t crash in safe mode, it suggests you have a software issue, and the initial way to fix this kind of problem would be to “reinstall” any programs causing an error. Programs often damage their system files / settings, leading your computer to run much less reliably as it has to take longer to read the files it needs. It’s often the case that the “resource intensive” applications, such as games & Photoshop, will cause the blue screen if they cannot read the files they need. If you see the error when using a particular program, the best advice is to reinstall that software.
3) Clean Out The Registry - If you see the error appearing randomly on your computer, then it’s likely going to be a problem caused by the “registry”. This is a big database that Windows uses to store vital information & settings for your computer, and is where the likes of your desktop wallpaper, Internet bookmarks and even your stored passwords are kept. The registry is used continuously by your computer to help it run as smoothly as possible, but this is also one of the biggest causes of problems - as the registry continually has a series of damaged settings inside, which cause Windows applications to become unable to read the settings they need to run. If you’re seeing random blue screens, the issue is likely caused by the registry having a lot of corrupt files inside… meaning that you should look to clean out this part of your computer. You can do this with a “registry cleaner” - a software tool that should stop the random blue screens on Windows 7.
