Also abbreviated as BSOD, the Blue Screen of Death is:

1. The most terrifying thing even to appear on the monitor of your PC unbidden. Happens quite frequently when one's GPU is on the fritz.

2. The reason the color blue makes me uneasy.
1. Hmm, a new Java game. Looks interes- wait, why did my screen turn black suddenly... OH SHIT IT'S A BSOD! AGH! HELP! HELP!

2. I don't like that shirt. It's the same shade as a Blue Screen of Death. Please don't wear it again, or at least sit a little farther away. And stop laughing at me, it's not funny. It's not funny!

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!

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!

When your computer is really messed up, the Blue Screen of Death tells you.

On the BSoD it shows the reason why your computer stopped, generally, you have no idea what it means.

Some BSoD reasons include:

Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area (whatever that means)
Mult_IRP_Complete_Requests (???)
Memory_Management (that sounds bad...)
also some .exe files cause the BSoD

your computer could be ok, or it could be dead, good luck
the default background for windows is blue for a reason, dam blue screen of death
