Blue Screen

 

This type of crash is most common with Windows computers. You will know you have crashed into a blue screen as the screen will turn a shade of blue and you will receive an error code with some information. The error code and information given is key to the cause of the problem.

Depending on the settings of the Windows installation, the error code will stay on the screen until the computer has restarted or it will restart after a time that the crash dump is collected.

 

Screen Frozen

 

You will know the screen has frozen when the mouse may have disappeared or wont move while your using your computer, you might hear a constant stuck sound as well. Your keyboard also wont work and you wont be able to do anything which means your will have to hard reboot your computer by powering off at the mains and turning back on or holding the power button for 10 seconds to force reboot.

If the issue consistently persists it may be a problem that needs to be looked at.

 

 

Black Screen
