Article by Maximum PC: Blue Screen Survival Guide
The article in the link above is a nice article, but not really geared towards the average computer user. Most people would just call a computer repair company as soon as they saw this dreaded blue screen, but most of the time you can just reboot your computer and continue on. It may be an underlying problem that does need to be fixed, but it’s not worth having someone come out, pay them $100 for them to “say” they fixed it, just to have it come back later. If the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) does continue to appear or you find that you’re computer isn’t acting like it usually does, then it’s probably time to get an expert to look into the problem.
