In the bad old days before XP
, this was a frequent occurence on computers which ran on a Windows OS
. In some of the worst cases, you only had to look at the computer in a funny manner for the temperamental bastard to give you the Blue Screen Of Death
! It usually tells you some shit like "a fatal error has occured
" and gives you some mathematical gibberish. Basically, it means the operating system is rather shite and can't be arsed doing what you wanted it to do...
I remember a few years ago on my section at work we had this computer that gave us the Blue Screen Of Death so fuckin' often on a daily basis that I ended up decorating the monitor with the chequered tape we normally use on files if someone is terminally ill!
Microsoft's most successful program
"At microsoft, we are running out of money, so we will now charge you for the blue screen of death"
Windows has been running for 2 minutes now. We can thusly expect a Blue Screen Of Death right about... now.
Blue screen that you're all too familiar with if you use an older version of windows. If you can't wait the ten minutes it takes to crash, just put a floppy disk or cd in and then take it out while trying to load something from it.
Last year at my school there was a slideshow with pictures of the seniors at an assembly. I laughed my ass off when the blue screen of death showed up halfway through their shitty powerpoint presentation.
An error message on a blue screen and uses the MS-DOS font. This happens when major or "fatal" errors occur. In some cases you can press any key "to continue," but sometimes pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL may be required, and in rare cases you will have to power off the computer due to the keyboard not responding or getting a "System halted._" message.
Windows ME sucks. I get blue screens of death 24/7.
a cruel joke played by bill gates. a blue colored screen that appears whilst using any of the windows operating systems, whether you have done something wrong with the computer or not. it prompts you to press any key to return to windows, or press ctrl alt del, but generally neither work. therefore your computer "dies" and it makes you want a mac even more every time you get the blue screen of death.
fuck you bill gates
windows is fucking gay
what the fuck, the blue screen of death sucks ass. what a great idea to have an operating system with so many holes in it that crashes your computer all the time.
A Windows Problem in which your RAM isn't capable of the program you are running. Happens most often in Windows 98 or Windows 98SE
Amazing, I haven't had the blue screen of death in 2 hours. Quick honey, call Ripleys Beleive it or not.
What you tend to see every 30 minutes when using Windows ME
Women love the Blue Screen of Death because, when stared at for hours on end, adds "gorgeous highlights" to their hair.
