An error message that appears in blue and white on windows 95/98/2000/me/nt/xp/2003 boxes every time you: read a cd-rom/plug in a usb device/install new hardware/read e-mail/play solitaire/look for porn/listen to mp3's/click on start/change the background/chat over IRC/install any kind of new software/make 'backups' of windows Cd's to share with your friends/type word documents/try to get you fscking soundcard to work/calibrate your joystick/open 3rd party browsers like firefox/compile cpp files/keep your pc on for more than two minutes ect.

The problem is rarely caused by bad memory. the main cause is bad programming, whereby a program (usualy explorer.exe, but other virii are also known) ignores memory boundries and writes data to memory locations allocated to other programs, causing them to abort.
Windows caused a page-fault in module winsux.dll at 0x442298765, 0x656758958, 0x2234323434

An access voilation occured while trying to reference memory at 0x444567358

Unspecified error. Abort, Retry, Fail?

the blue message screen that comes up when an error occurs while using Microsoft Windows
Not the blue screen of death again. This is the third time in a week it's come up.

Contrary to popular belief, the Blue screen of death is actually a program designed to stop you computer and prevent harm being done by maybe a mis-read line of code or an invalid argument. And for all of those who complain bout losing their essays, get OpenOffice, it has document recovery, dumb asses.
P1 - Oh no I just got the Blue Screen of death!
Tech Guy - Oh no, that is not a crash, you computer is just shutting down to prevent a fatal system error

A screen that appears on all versions of Windows when the system has an error so bad it has to shut down. The error text is displayed as DOS text on a blue background, hence the name. Versions before XP were notorious for giving this screen VERY frequently, though later versions were progressively more stable. XP and Vista users generally don't get this unless:
1. They fuck with software in ways they're really not supposed to.
2.They build their computer themselves and install vital parts wrong.
3. They use bad drivers, especially with their video cards or motherboards.
I started up Windows 95 and got the Blue Screen of Death before I even logged in!

Something that happens after every half hour on a Microsoft Windows 98 or lower. Get an XP, dorks!
That's my 129th BSOD today and counting...
by TheBurninator December 09, 2003
something that happens when you run windows vista for no longer then 10 minutes. usually when your doing something very important or just beating your meat.
last night i was beating my meat to female/female/donkey action and i got a blue screen of death. so i picked up my computer and threw it out the fucking windows and smoked a cig after.

n. common
Due to the extreme fragility and bugginess of Microsoft Windows,
misbehaving applications can readily crash the OS
(and the OS sometimes crashes itself spontaneously).
The Blue Screen of Death, sometimes decorated with hex error codes,
is what you get when this happens. (Commonly abbreviated BSOD.)
It is often impossible to recover cleanly from a BSOD. The blue screen of death can strike anywhere.
At the Comdex trade show, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates
encountered the Blue Screen of Death during a demonstration of Windows 98.
(He had a spare computer standing by).
