Blue screen while updating ati drivers

Drivers can be simple or complex, and like any software, drivers can have bugs.

One of the first signs of an overheating computer is the unexplained crash, which often manifests as a blue screen.

As I said, though, everything from memory When discussing computers, memoryspecifically refers to a computer’s RAM, or Random Access Memory.

Check Windows Update, specifically for “Optional” updates, as driver A driver, short for “device driver”, is software installed into Windows (or any operating system) that handles the operating details for using a particular hardware device.

For example, a mouse can be connected to your computer any of several ways: via a wired PS2 connector, a wired USB connector, a wireless USB connector, or a Bluetooth.

It presents a single screen full of information about a serious failure, and halts the computer completely – hence “death”.

The information happens to be displayed as white text on a blue background – hence “blue screen”.

Unfortunately, it could be just about any hardware component of your system at fault.

One of the most common is a blocked, stuck, or broken ventilation fan, which is now allowing your computer to overheat.

If you’ve just installed new hardware, then it’s likely to be related to the problem.

Make sure you’re running the latest drivers for that device.

Each for each different interface translates that hardware-specific information into generic information, like “the right mouse button is pressed”, that Windows then uses.
