Regular Blue Screen Crashes

The infamous BSOD, or "Blue Screen of Death" is a serious issue, also known as a "Stop error." When your computer encounters a serious problem, Windows will stop working to prevent any damage to your computer, operating system or other software. The majority of blue screen crashes are caused by faulty drivers or hardware. Although there are numerous possible reasons for a blue screen crash overall, carrying out the following tasks will get rid of many of them.

1 - Use System Restore
The most effective way to deal with most system failures is to consider what happened between when the computer was working perfectly and when it started to crash. Did you install an update driver, a new hardware device or a Windows Update? If you made a significant change such as either of these, then it is most likely that this caused the problem.
Using system restore will restore your computer to an earlier point in time. Type "System Restore" into the start menu search box and press Enter. Restore your computer to the most recent time when it was running without issues.
Alternatively, you can start up your computer using the last known good configuration. This option will typically appear on the boot screen when you attempt to start Windows after a crash.

2 - Boot Up into Safe Mode to Fix Problems
Starting up Windows in safe mode prevents any non-essential drivers or services from starting up, allowing you to solve problems through trial and error. Restart your computer and press F8 on your keyboard before the Windows boot screen appears. From the advanced startup menu, choose "Safe Mode with Networking." Windows should start up in safe mode with the Internet still enabled.
In safe mode, thoroughly scan your computer for malware using an up-to-date antivirus program. When you've done this, run Windows Update and install all critical and recommended updates.
Finally, open your start menu and click "Computer." Right-click on your primary hard drive (the one Windows is installed on) and click "Properties." Click the "Tools" tab and, under the "Error-checking" section, click "Check now." Windows will scan your hard disk for errors when you restart the computer.

3 - Change BIOS Settings Back to Default
If you have made any changes in the system BIOS, this may be a cause of the blue screen crashes. If you have done anything like change memory timings, overclocked the processor or changed any other advanced system settings, then revert your BIOS back to default factory settings. If you can't remember how to access the BIOS, it is usually accessible by pressing "del" or "F2" on your keyboard before Windows starts to load.
