BSOD: How to replace blue screen error with a blank screen for system errors

A stop error or exception error, commonly called the blue screen of death (BSoD) or blue screen, is an error screen displayed on Windows computers following a fatal system error. It indicates a system crash, in which the operating system has reached a condition where it can no longer operate safely.

So when this occurs in Windows, the operating system stops and the resulting diagnostic information is displayed as white text on a blue screen. Blue screen errors occur in the following situations.

  1. Windows has an error that cannot be fixed without data loss.
  2. Windows determines that a hardware failure has occurred that cannot be restored
  3. Windows determines that critical operating system data has been corrupted

Here are the steps to replace a blue screen Error (BSoD) with a blank screen for OS errors: This is necessary to let the user know currently there are issues with the device, instead of leaving them with a blank screen with no information.

– Navigate to the following path HKLM
– SYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCrashControl
– Create a registry key as DWORD(32-bit) Value named “DisplayDisabled”

– Add the type with a value of 1

That is all that needs to be configured 🙂 I hope you found this blog post helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comment session.
