There are many reasons why the Blue screen of death happens or the screen freezes/crashes...Often it can be attributed to software or programs that we downloaded over the internet or installed through a cd, which caused a conflict with exisiting programs.
Check for a software conflict:
1. If an older program suddenly stops working properly after you install a new program, try reinstalling the older program, which may have had some of its files overwritten by the new one.
2. If your computer crashes after you install a new program, when both it and an older program are running, check with the publishers of the programs to see if there are updates that address the conflict.
3. If you've installed a new program and start getting crashes that don't seem to be related to running any other program, try uninstalling the new program. (See How to Remove a Windows Program.) If crashes continue, reinstall the operating system.
4. The Lazy Mans Way
The lazy way is to get a good registry cleaner because software conflicts results in errors in our registry, which contains all the drivers, information about our computer, printer drivers, softwares, video card drivers etc. An up to date registry cleaner quickly and easily fixes software errors
