When your computer blue screens, it has experienced an error that causes your computer to restart. A blue screen is very similar to a check engine light on a car, in that it tells you there is something wrong.

If you’re experiencing the dreaded blue screen of death, call us today to get your computer in working condition.

While Blue Screens are frustrating, they are important sources of information to let us know whether something is interfering with our operating system. Blue screens are not the sign of a virus, but the sign of something malfunctioning. Common causes of blue screens are failing hardware, video drivers conflicting with software, or core windows files crashing or becoming corrupt.
