    How to Run Blue Screen Error (BSOD) Troubleshooter in Windows 10

    information   Information
    A blue screen error (also called a stop error) can occur if a problem causes your PC to shut down or restart unexpectedly. When you experience this type of error, you won’t be able to see things like the Start menu or the taskbar on the screen when your PC is turned on. Instead you might see a blue screen with a message that your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart.

    This tutorial will show you how to run the Blue Screen (BSOD) troubleshooter to troubleshoot errors that cause Windows 10 to stop or restart unexpectedly.

    Note   Note
    The Blue Screen (BSOD) troubleshooter interprets the bugcheck codes, and tells you if the blue screen crash was caused by:
    • Faulty hardware
    • Failing disk drive
    • Malware
    • Memory failure
    • Services
    • Device drivers

    For more details about blue screen or stop errors, see:

    That's too bad, after forcing a BSOD I get the message that no issue was detected....
    I didn't expect much, because this is in the begin fase, but I did expect the troubleshooter to at least detect that a BSOD had occured.

    I guess you still have a job then @axe0

    What would be nice if it just gernerated a log with the information needed ,and automatically placed it in the downloads folder.
    I say downloads, because of users like me that hide their desktop icons, and wouldn't notice it was created.
    If it went to the downloads folder, it could then ask the user what he wants to do with it, save or save as...etc.
