Troubleshooting STOP Errors with Windows XP

One of the most vague and frustrating errors any Windows user can encounter is a STOP error. Usually, users refer to this error not-so-affectionately as the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).

If your program starts, but triggers a crash that locks up your computer and displays a technical error message with white text on a blue background, then you've encountered the dreaded BSOD. The cause might be a problem with a program's files, with its interaction with other software or hardware on your system, or your memory or other hardware. With so many possible causes, BSOD errors can be extremely difficult to troubleshoot.
