1: Check for Possible System File and Hard Drive Corruption

Corrupted system files or faulty hard drive is the most likely reason for a blue screen of death error. To check if your system files or hard drive is at fault: 

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and type cmd. Right-click Command Prompt and click Run as administrator

Click Yes to continue. 


2) Type chkdsk /f /r, then press Enter on your keyboard.  

3) Press Y on your keyboard. 

4) Restart your computer so Windows will perform a hard disk check. 

5) After the restart, press the Windows logo key and type cmd. Right-click Command Prompt and click Run as administrator

6) Type sfc /scannow and press the Enter key on your keyboard. 


Wait for a while with patience so Windows will help you detect if there is any faulty files in your system and help get rid of them. 

2: Update available Windows Updates

Outdated or faulty system patches is another big reason why you’re having a blue screen of error like this. You can upgrade your system patches to fix it. Here is how: 

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and I at the same time. Click Update & security

2) Click Check for updates

Other Work-arounds

1) Undo whatever changes you recently made to your system. For example, if you’ve recently added certain hardware to your PC, remove it. If you’ve installed some programs, uninstall them or get them upgraded to the latest versions available. 

3) If none of the above methods work, you might want to check your hardware to see if it’s the culprit. Check to see if your graphics card is at a good state. If it’s broken, get a new one.

Sometimes, there might be incompatibility problem between your system and certain hardware. You might want to remove such hardware to stop this problem from happening again. 

4) A refresh or reset on your Windows 10 is your last resort. For more information as to how to reset your Windows 10, please refer to this post here

    Hi there! On my side, I’ve tried everything you can imagine about the drivers, memory test, regedit changes, installing and uninstalling, modifying graphic card controls, re-installing Windows and more and more… What works for me was to make some changes to the overclocking frequency of my graphic card. Finally, everything seems to work fine now.

      Where did you change that. I can’t find a solution for this, I’ve tried everything

    • Lucas Bombal

      How? and what changes did you make?

    • Ethan Cobos

      Where????

  • John

    For the first fix, I also have an E:/ Drive which is where I save all my games to. Since I got this BSoD while playing a game and I have not recently installed anything new would there be any point to running chkdsk e: /f /r?

      Hi, John.

      You can try that as well.
