Blue Screen of Death
<humour> (BSOD) The infamous white-on-blue text screen which appears when
Microsoft Windows crashes. BSOD is mostly seen on the 16-bit systems such as
Windows 3.1, but also on Windows 95 and apparently even under Windows NT 4. It
is most likely to be caused by a GPF, although Windows 95 can do it if you've
removed a required CD-ROM from the drive. It is often impossible to recover
cleanly from a BSOD.
The acronym BSOD is sometimes used as a verb, e.g. "Windoze just keeps BSODing
on me today".
