    Who's seen the new BSOD screen?


    Just had my first BSOD when restarting (caused by attached external drive I think).


    It's pretty damn low res. Looked very blurry

    That's odd... mine seemed pretty hi res (720p). Heh.
    It was when I installed onto a new laptop today but didn't install the network driver properly... I have since learned to get my drivers from Windows Update...

    Odd. I could barely read the error on mine

    Hopefully I don't plan on seeing too many more for it to be an issue.

    Yeah, mine wasn't exactly very specific, but that was the first thing I did, so I clearly knew where I went wrong.
    And yes, let's hope we don't see many more. XD

    Hope they put more info on the blue screen in the beta.

    It would be nice - but sadly I doubt it.


    Bluescreens are destined to remain mysterious for quite some time yet

    Yes, and in hindsight, it's very difficult to report a sudden system crash... well, unless your operating system is sentient, but I don't think Windows 8 has got that far... yet.

    It's not easy to provide lot of information through the BSOD screen that's why they capture those in dump files but one thing I wonder is why does it make it so hard to troubleshoot for an average user. Maybe they might improve in future but I don' think it would happen anytime soon.

    Somewhere about win 12 they might come up with something more quantitative and easier for the average user to self diagnose. I am not holding my breath.

    Thankfully some (most?) BSOD'S dont need the reboot to write the DMP file.

    I am waiting for the symbol set to get fleshed out.
