How does the "Blue Screen of Death" work? (Post as answer, not comment.)

When ever anything that works closely with the kernel or other vital parts of windows fails, windows throws up a BSOD which is basically like a error report that the user can use to research what went wrong.
Each time you get a BSOD, Steve Ballmer throws a party at Microsoft.

The Blue Screen Of Death (along with BSoD or bluescreen) is a colloquialism used for the error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error that can cause the system to shut down to prevent irreversible damage to its integrity. It serves to present information for diagnostic purposes that was collected as the operating system issued a bug check.

Data in memory would then be lost but in some circumstances it could be retrievable from the dump file, a process that must be carried out by a trained PC technician.

Well if you ask me the blue screen of death is cause by a lot of things, and it is hardware or software related but like people say "its related to the kernel" which as far as I know the Kernel links software to hardware and hardware to software (communicating with one another)

Basically, if you don't know how to use a computer it will pop up and then your in trouble.
There is plenty of tutorials teaching you how to properly use your computer for next time.
Have a nice day pal.
