Blue Screen of Death
Jump to user comments
humour (BSOD) The infamous white-on-blue text screen which
appears when Microsoft Windows crashes. BSOD is mostly seen
on the 16-bit systems such as Windows 3.1, but also on
Windows 95 and apparently even under Windows NT 4. It is
most likely to be caused by a GPF, although Windows 95 can
do it if you've removed a required CD-ROM from the drive.
It is often impossible to recover cleanly from a BSOD.
