Just another “Oh,Snap” moment I experienced,exactly a week ago ! My PC snapped! For the very first time in my 12 years of windows usage..!! <clap clap> 😛
Is there any way to get rid of the BSOD.Oh yeah.I was googling & found the perfect solution,that some creative genius discovered.Well..All discussed below..
For those rarest of individuals unfamiliar with the Windows Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), its formal Microsoft title is the Stop Error screen. In the Windows 95 and Windows 98 operating systems, the BSOD was the result of either a faulty device driver or a dynamic link library (DLL) conflict — otherwise known as DLL Hell (Sorry, If I’m putting you thru’ hell.:P ). In other incarnations of the Windows OS family, the BSOD indicates an illegal operation from which the OS kernel can’t recover.
There are almost as many “death screens” as there are operating systems, though some are more colorful than others.
Apple Macintosh OS –Sad Mac frowning icon screen or the Mac Bomb error page.
Mac OS X endures a UNIX-derived kernel panic screen, which is gray.
MS-DOS,Previous Windows,OS/2 – Black Screen of Death
Indeed Microsoft has created screens of death in many colors, with early Vista beta releases displaying a Red Screen of Death for certain errors, and Xbox firmware throwing up a Green Screen of Death for its serious malfunctions.
Some things are a technological tradition — and deathly fun Geek Trivia. Below, are some handpicked trivia on death screens.. Read on! 😀
Which operating system’s version of the contemporary Windows Blue Screen of Death was instead a Guru Meditation — perhaps the most whimsical fatal error notification ever employed by a major OS?
The answer is none other than the earlier versions of the venerable AmigaOS, which powered the Amiga line of computers back in the 1980s.
- Blue Screen Of Death was originally derived from the old term Black Screen Of Death. No one is given credit for making up the name but the Black Screen Of Death was inspired by the Floating Head of Death in a famous “Far Side” cartoon
- Microsoft employees occasionally use the term, but I don’t remember any official documenation referring to it as anything other than a “Stop Error” or a “Blue Screen.” Some of their publications, like MSDN stuff, will use “BSOD” from time to time.
- The Blue Screen of Death, sometimes decorated with hex error codes, is what you get when this happens. (Commonly abbreviated BSOD.) This event is sufficiently common to have inspired the following haiku from Alan Tuplin:
Your system which soared
So freely on gliding wings
now hangs, frozen and blue
- The following entry from the Salon Haiku Contest, seems to have predated popular use of the term (and may indeed have inspired it):
Windows NT crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death
No one hears your screams.
- Games that used the BSoD : Vampire, Eternal Darkness, Halo 2, Halo 3, Half Life 2
- About that..creative solution to a NO BSod. 😉 Well you can say good-bye blue screen and hello to green screen, or purple screen, or black screen of death! Just download this simple little utility called BSOD Properties and select your favorite color! 😀
Well that’s all folks.Time to Chiggy Wiggy.Ciao~
P.S: Much ado about SoD’s has been made in this post.Opensource freaks,spare me! 😛
