What are the reasons for Blue screens in HP Mini 210 Vivienne HD Edition working on Windows® 7?
The reason for a Blue Screen can always be attributed to failure. It can be software or hardware failure and can sometimes even be related to viruses. If you install a new hardware component that is not compatible or has a malfunction a Blue Screen may be the result and that is the computers way of telling you that it won’t work. In the same manner, if the hardware is fine, but is still incompatible, when you install the software and drivers for that piece of hardware, it may be missing certain needed files for your current OS and that may also lead to a Blue Screen. Another reason could be the result of a virus that removed necessary files that are required for your OS or another application to work.
How do you find the cause for Blue Screen in HP Mini 210 Vivienne HD Edition working on Windows® 7?
Generally, a Blue Screen is accompanied by a system freeze and at this point in time, Windows is making a log of what happened. Your aim is to find and analyze that log in order to get the relevant information. You will follow the path of the “control panel/ system/ advanced settings/ startup and recovery”. Within this file, you will find the log file that you are looking for. Get to the kernel memory image which is stored default as “Default is% systemroot% Memory.dmp”. You will now have to get a debugging tool that is compatible with the Windows® version that you have, in this case, it is Windows® 7. The tools will have to be downloaded and installed onto your computer and you will go to “Open Crash dump”. This is of course where you lead it to the path of the Log or dump file and then enter “analyze” into the command prompt and then execute that command. This is where you will be given the data for the reasons that contributed to Blue Screen.
A simple restart of your computer will usually do the trick and the Blue Screen will often not re-appear. If it comes back, it is usually due to something that you have recently installed and your best bet would be to uninstall whatever it was. A recurring problem can also be due to the memory of your system rather than the new addition, if the memory is not enough or corrupted; you may also have Blue Screen issues. Try upgrading the memory to solve the issue. If the memory is not the problem, run a virus scan as some viruses will remove files and cause problems within your system, a registry cleanup may also help. Pay close attention to the error messages, they will often give you an insight about the problem and you will be better able to resolve it.
