The Windows 8 no longer produces the ominous Blue Screen of Death. Is it true? Well, yes and no. The Blue Screen of Death is still alive in name, but no longer the true threat that it once was. For one thing, it’s powerful and shocking deep blue color has been lightened to a less threatening light blue color that no longer exhibits a bunch of stop error codes that look very fatal, which you have no time to read before your computer crashes and restarts. You get more options than that now. Thank you, Micorsoft Windows for decreasing the spike in many people’s blood pressure.
Now the blue screen error comes with a smiley face and gives a simple error message “You PC ran into problem and needs to restart”. If the whole process still goes by too quickly for you, you can set your controls to not automatically restart your computer in the event of the system failure. But be warned that once you gather all of your information and saved that 20-page report that you were working on, it’s probably a good idea to restart anyway.
