Blue Screen of Death Cause

The Blue Screen of Death (also known as a stop error, BSoD, bluescreen, or Blue Screen of Doom) is a colloquialism used for the error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error which can cause the system to shut down to prevent damage. Some stupid people think that its the inability of Windows to work properly or its some internal error which appears to just annoy the user. This is not the fact. It has a cause.

Bluescreens on NT-based Windows systems are usually caused by poorly-written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware. In the Win9x era, incompatible DLLs or bugs in the kernel of the operating system could also cause bluescreens. They can also be caused by physical faults such as faulty memory, power supplies, overheating of computer components, or hardware running beyond its specification limits. Bluescreens have been present in all Windows-based operating systems since Windows 3.1; earlier, OS/2 suffered the Black Screen of Death, and early builds of Windows Vista displayed the Red Screen of Death after a boot loader error.

Blue Screen of Death Solution

Do not use Windows. Use MAC or Linux. Another solution is to not use PC at all… hehe:D
For your information there is similar error screen for MAC and Linux as well.
Just read above the causes of BSOD for windows and fix if you find any of that.

Download Blue Screen of Death Screen Saver

Want to scare the hell out of your friend? Right! Take this file with you. Simply copy SysInternalsBluescreen.scr to the system32 directory if on Windows NT/2K, or WindowsSystem directory if on Windows 9x. Right click on the desktop to bring up the Display settings dialog and then select the “Screen Saver” tab. Use the pull down list to find “Sysinternals Bluescreen” and apply it as your new screen saver. Select the “Settings” button to enable fake disk activity, which adds an extra touch of realism or Blue Screen of Death! [source]

Sad MAC

sad-macA Sad Mac is an iconic symbol used by older-generation Apple Macintosh computers (hardware using the Old World ROM), starting with the original 128K Macintosh, to indicate a severe hardware or software problem that prevented startup from occurring successfully. Sad MAC is similar to Windows BSOD in MAC. One version of the Sad Mac icon is displayed here, indicating that an illegal instruction occurred.

Kernel Panic and Oops For Linux

A kernel panic is an action taken by an operating system upon detecting an internal fatal error from which it cannot safely recover; the term is largely specific to Unix and Unix-like systems. The equivalent in Microsoft Windows operating systems is the Blue Screen of Death. An oops is a deviation from correct behavior of the Linux kernel which produces a certain error log. The better-known kernel panic condition results from many kinds of oops, but others may allow continued operation with compromised reliability.

Following is Linux kernel panic caused by a hard disk hardware failure.

Following is the Linux kernel oops on SPARC.

XBox Red Ring of Death

Three red lights on the Xbox 360′s ring indicator representing “general hardware failure”.

Similarly there is a Purple Screen of Death (PSOD) for VMware when an ESX vmkernel experiences a critical failure. Okay so there is a Blue Screen of Death kind of error for every Operating system i.e. MAC, Linux. This error indicates that something has gone wrong. If in the above photos there would be MAC or Linux then there would be different Screens of Death. But there is Screen of Death for every OS.
