Have your ever contemplated what is the exact technical issue behind the message- "Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer?"
Commonly referred to as the Blue Screen of Death (also known as a blue screen or BSoD) or STOP error, all of us have often encountered this error pop up while using the computer system.
BSoD gets displayed on a Windows computer system after a fatal system error or system crash. This happens when the operating system reaches a condition where it can no longer operate safely.
Microsoft reported that no security update was causing the issue, and it may be tied to malware. In other cases, the black screen was replaced with the Blue Screen of Death. The Black Screen of Death may also be caused by overheating of certain components of a computer, or if a serious technical problem causes Windows to shut down or restart unexpectedly.
When Windows senses that something can cause real harm to its operating system, it automatically switches to shutting down everything resulting in the BSoD. A BSoD can be a symptom of a hardware problem. In that case, it might look as if the error itself caused the problem. Although a BSoD won't damage your hardware, it can cause undue distress by disrupting your work flow or messing up your important schedule.
In Windows era, BSoD can also be caused by bugs and virus that are lurking in the operating system and gradually prepare for a fatal attack. BSoDs can be caused by poorly written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware, such as faulty memory, power supply issues, overheating of components, or hardware running beyond its specification limits.
Typically, BSoD is caused by hardware failure or a low-level software. The computer crashes and switches to a restart mode immediately when a BSoD occurs.
