Blue Screen of Death




<humour> (BSOD) The infamous white-on-blue text screen which appears when Microsoft Windows crashes.

BSOD is mostly seen on the 16-bit systems such as Windows 3.1, but also on Windows 95 and apparently even under Windows NT 4.

It is most likely to be caused by a GPF, although Windows 95 can do it if you've removed a required CD-ROM from the drive. It is often impossible to recover cleanly from a BSOD.

The acronym BSOD is sometimes used as a verb, e.g. "Windoze just keeps BSODing on me today".
