Window Vista: Determining STOP Errors From Event Viewer

In Windows Vista/2008 or later, to determine which STOP (Blue Screen or BSOD) errors your system has experienced:

  1. Click Start , type eventvwr in the search box and press Enter.

  2. Click Continue if prompted by User Account Control.

  3. In the left-hand pane, expand Windows Logs, and left-click System.

  4. Right-click System and choose Filter Current Log:

  5. At Event Sources, type BugCheck.

  6. Click OK.

    The Event Viewer will display all the BugCheck events. Click on each to reveal the details, which are similar to the following:

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000050 (0xa99d1000, 0x00000000, 0x81ec2693, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP.

    The STOP error code is the first hexadecimal, in this case, 0x00000050, or just 50. Codes may also include letters, such as 0x0000001F.
