How To Fix Blue Screen of Death in Windows 7 ?

Computer errors have become an irritation for so many people now. One of the most common asked questions is how to fix windows 7 blue screen of death (BSOD).


The problem happens when the computer screen becomes blue. All the working computer programs are stopped in between. This error is such a huge problem for people because all the programs stop working. On top of it, any unsaved work is lost forever. Therefore, the users have to do their best to get rid of such blue screen errors.

Compared to Windows XP & Vista, BSOD aka blue screen of death annoyance is very less with Windows 7 but that does not mean Windows 7 is full proof to BSOD error. Recently Microsoft has noted Windows 7 may crash with blue screen of death error for no apparent reason followed by error message “STOP: 0×0000000A.”


Computer running Windows 7 occasionally crashes after it runs for some time. You receive a Stop error message with blue screen. The Stop error message resembles the following: STOP: 0×0000000A (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4) IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUA

The biggest flaw in Windows 7 in my opinion was the frequency of Blue Screen Of Death when a USB device was unplugged without ejecting it from Windows. It was like if someone using Windows XP would come to the person using Windows 7 and plugged in his USB drive and then he would hurriedly unplug his USB drive without knowing that it would crash the Windows 7.

The error codes on Blue Screen of Death are usually 0x0000007E and 0×00000050. Fortunately the hotfix for fixing this issue is available with Microsoft now. To see the details about this error message go to this Microsoft article KB979538.

Download the hotfix from the following location:

I just read your post it make some sense. But, you never ever said how to download the fix from a website for the Blue Screen problem on the same system.

If the computer that has the Blue screen is your only computer, then, how are you going to download the fix from the website if you can't boot into windows on your only system. Did I miss anything?

What I normally do in just install the same OS on the system and do a repair. This hopefully will allow me to back up all the important data from my computer/pictures/music/videos/favorites/bookmarks/outlook express etc.

Once I have all that back up then I will try to download the fix or I just ripe the entire hard drive and start fresh or if the Computer comes with a Partition then all I do is just re-install the system to the Factory Original. Let me know what you think.

when you get the bluescreen of death the only way around it is to reformat there is no other way and there should be an easier way this just takes up too much time.

Blue screen of death occurs when PC crashes and it needs to be stopped. Really very helpful solution. Use Mac Data Recovery Software to fix the issue.
