Fatal Error Solutions
     
 
View information and solutions from fatal Windows issues often called Stop codes, Bug Checks or the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD). This category of errors is usually caused by hardware or device driver issues. These are often tricky to solve as the error only hints at the problem source rather than pinpointing what is wrong. For each issue, we've created a solution list of the best way to attack each issue and get it solved!  
sample bsod screens
 
 


You may encounter two types of fatal issues - the fatal blue screen or a "The system has recovered from a serious error" message, where you have to select "click here" to see the BCheck number (which is the same as the Stop code number). See Examples for more on how to read these screens.

If you don't see an item listed here, we'd like to know. We believe our list is the most comprehensive list that exists, with over 300 issues documented with solutions and fixes!

You can also check out our extensive Fatal Error BSoD Solution Guide for handling any BSoD issue and help for more assistance.
