Blue Screen of Death (BSoD), also called STOP message or STOP error, is the blue, full screen error indicating a rather serious system crash, causing your PC to shut down or reboot unusually. It sounds terrible and somehow sentences your Windows operating systems to death literally, especially for starters. However, it doesn't that serious. Here I would like to introduce you something about BSoD and a practical way to fix Windows 10 Blue Screen error. More on this below.

Windows 10 Blue Screen of Death Fix

The first thing to do in Blue Screen of Death troubleshooting is to identify what you've done just now. Usually a new program/hardware installation, a driver update would lead to BSoD. Commonly there are three situations when you get Blue Screen Crash, they are Windows 10 BSoD on startup/boot, Windows 10 BSoD while updating and Windows 10 BSoD after update.

Case1. Windows 10 BSoD after Update

In the case of Windows 10 BSoD after update, if you can get to the desktop and access "Start" menu, try uninstalling more than one update package if you cannot identify the root cause, by entering "View installed updates" >> select "View installed updates" >> select the update package >> click "Uninstall".

But what if you can't get to the desktop? After the computer restarted several times, it will enter automatic repair for you. After it, on the Choose an option screen, choose Troubleshoot >> Advanced options >> System Restore, which would bring you back to an earlier point in time named a system restore point, just choose the one before you go through the crash.

Case2. Windows 10 BSoD while Updating

In this case, problems can be solved easily as setup will go back to your previous version of Windows automatically for you. No need to worry.
