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?

when windows running mashines die, they show the infamous blue screen of death... a blue screen with a bunch of crap writing on it that basically tells you that your dumb computer finally met its end for today, aka crashed (but what it means is go buy yourself a Mac while you at it because they're alot better anyways). This screen is a fairly common occurance among windows users.... poor deprived people...
Joe- OH MY GOD MY PC IS SHOWING THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH..... AGAIN!!!! and i was just about to save my huge report! *sob*
Jennifer- oh im sorry, heres a kleenex. why dont you use my brand new iMac G5 to finish your report? it never crashes

The error screen that pops up on Windows 2000 and lower, whenever a fatal error occurs. Windows XP has a similar error screen, but it rarely pops up. That doesn't mean that Windows XP is a good OS though.
I was about to finish my homework when the god damned Blue Screen of Death popped up on the screen. From now on, I'm writing up my homework.

Only happens when things get real serious. Like a system overload, or when you download a corrupted file. Not this 'click one button and it happens' crap, or this 'Hey I was just browsing for a few minutes and boom! It flashed up!' shit. You guys are so stupid.
Asshole: Hey you! Help! The blue screen of death just popped up.
Guy: That's not a blue screen, that's just your desktop.
Asshole: No, because I was just browsing and then it flashed up.
Guy: N00b.
Asshole: I AM NOT!
Guy: Then suggest a better system.
Asshole: Uh...Linux?
