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".

Blue Screen of Death

A crash in Windows that causes the computer to lock up, and the screen turns entirely blue. The solution is to reboot. See Black Screen of Death and Red Ring of Death.
