MultiColor Screen of Death


Time for Some fun ?? Ok ?? What is the thing which scares even the most hardcore Windows users. It tends to appear at the worst possible times, and whats worse is that, the explanation for its appearance is so obscure that i’m sure that even the people at Microsoft do not know what’s going on. That’s right, a windows users worst fear, i’m talking about … the Blue Screen of Death (commonly known as BSOD).

True, that appearance of BSOD has so much as minimised in Windows 7 but it still does happen. In this tutorial, I’m not going to teach you how to avoid it but turn your BSoD into a RSOD, GSoD, YSoD or pretty much any SoD you wish. Yes, any color you wish.

Why? Just for fun.

To get started, go here and download their program called Notmyfault (Direct Link).

Important Note : Before doing anything with it at all, save everything that you are doing. You will be creating a genuine BSoD instance while modifying the colors, so your computer will behave just as it does when the screen appears on its own accord.

After clicking on the link and saving the file, you will have a zip file containing both 32 and 64 bit versions of the application – unzip the package and continue. Open the correct version of the file (32-bit or 64-bit, as applicable to you).

It should bring up a small window that looks as shown above. Historically, The program was originally created as a way to automatically create BSoD instances for presentation purposes!!!  As such, there are various settings you can choose to edit, including exactly what kind of a crash you would like to create. Make your selections and then click the BSOD Colors button. Select the colors you would like to see – pressing select with FG depressed will transfer the color to the text, while BG applies it to the background. When finished, click ok. Now,Prepare yourself emotionally, and click on Do Bug.

There you are! Have a little fun with the Blue (or maybe orange) Screen of Death instead of being terrified by it for once. I bet you’ll have fun generating ones of a color you pick and showing them off to your techy friends.

Note :  The screen will not stay in the new color, and the next time it appears it will be as blue So are suitable for demonstrations, not for general bluescreen customization.
