How to fix Blue Screen of Death errors on Windows 11

How to fix blue screen Windows 11.It would’ve been way better if these stop error screens laid out in plain words what was the issue that led to the crash. However, until Microsoft brings such changes to the error screen, we have to make do with the fixes that could potentially weed out the problem so you’re not visited by the ghost of your computer’s past. 

On Windows 11, Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) refers to the error on the screen when the system cannot handle a specific operation that causes the device to crash without warning.

Usually, you will see a "blue screen" (also referred to as "stop error," "system crash," or "bug check") during an upgrade, starting up the system, or "out of the blue" when you're actively working with applications. Furthermore, you will only see a blue background with a sad kaomoji with insufficient information to determine the reason for the problem.

However, the issue can usually be narrowed to a buggy update, device driver, compatibility issues with a specific app, or a piece of hardware that needs replacing.
