A review by Fernando Ortega

BlueScreenView is a simple and freeware application which gives Windows users some insight into what caused the infamous blue screen of death.

BlueScreenView will give you access to and display a human-readable version of the dump that is placed on your hard drive. This is perfect for giving both novice and intermediate users insight and ideas as to what caused the issue that so suddenly made your computer shut down with the BSOD.

Some issues are caused by hardware failure and some are simply things that certain software applications tried to do which was immediately halted by Windows or simply made your system crash.

Sometimes, the Blue Screen of Death is caused by outdated drivers and other times it is because your hardware is failing. This application will help you make that determination.
