Bluescreenview [free]

Recommended Posts

I hope this won't happen ever to anyone here, but in case you face a BSoD (Blue Screen of Death), BlueScreenView can help you find culprits.

 

 

BlueScreenView Features

• Automatically scans your current minidump folder and displays the list of all crash dumps, including crash dump date/time and crash details.

• Allows you to view a blue screen which is very similar to the one that Windows displayed during the crash.

• BlueScreenView enumerates the memory addresses inside the stack of the crash, and find all drivers/modules that might be involved in the crash.

• BlueScreenView also allows you to work with another instance of Windows, simply by choosing the right minidump folder (In Advanced Options).

• BlueScreenView automatically locate the drivers appeared in the crash dump, and extract their version resource information, including product name, file version, company, and file description

 

 

System Requirements

• BlueScreenView works with Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows 7, as long as Windows is configured to save minidump files during BSOD crashes. If your system doesn't create MiniDump files on a blue screen crash, try to configure it according to the following article: How to configure Windows to create MiniDump files on BSOD

• BlueScreenView can read the MiniDump files of both 32-bit and x64 systems.

What it says it does mostly is report a lot of info about the BSoD. Being not able to boot up is such a worst case scenario that asks for some recovering resources like discs or thumb drives with apps like UBCD4Win and stuff.

 

After you regain access to your system, you can use the info provided by Bluescreenview to fix things that might have caused the BSoD.

 

If you refer to "BlueScreenView also allows you to work with another instance of Windows, simply by choosing the right minidump folder (In Advanced Options).", well I can't say anything about it, I happily have never had a BSoD since Windows 95... lucky me! Posted Image

What a coincidence, I actually just had a BSoD about 20 minutes ago. This gives nice detail, and much simpler than having to search all over the place just to find out what caused the crash!

Now talk about coincidence!

Hope this helped you fix it.
