Computer crash and no blue screen? Try this!


Have you ever been working on your computer and suddenly the computer crashed and there was no blue screen? This type of event can be very annoying, especially if you weren’t saving what you were doing. Fortunately for some people, their computers fail to show a blue screen error message before crashing. If this sounds like your operating system, then read the following article that will help alleviate any fears that this is a serious problem.

What does a Blue Screen mean?

First things first: what does a blue screen mean? When a computer fails to complete the boot process successfully, errors are displayed on the monitor in the form of a small box with an error code and description as well as instructions on how to proceed from there. Sometimes these errors come up as text messages on your monitor accompanied by either beeping or the monitor turning off. These are all examples of blue screens that occur when some sort of hardware failure is occurring, or at least one not related to your hard drive.

Computer crash and no blue screen

But what about the computer crash without the blue screen? This does not necessarily mean there is no error at all; rather, there could be an issue with how Windows (or other OS) handles certain types of errors. When a program assigns incorrect values to memory locations allocated for specific purposes by your OS, it can cause these”computer crashes without blue screen” because Windows will not be able to load smoothly after this has occurred. The same happens if you install faulty drivers that do not allow your system to properly operate even though they cannot be read by your computer.

Determine if your devices still work

Determine if all your devices still work. If they do not, continue to diagnose each device’s functionality until you come across the faulty part that is causing the problem. Then, remove or replace that component and see if it solved your problem. Another solution would be to perform a system restore in order to revert back to an earlier date before this issue occurred. This will often solve problems caused by faulty drivers. It may also be helpful to upgrade systems with older hardware features using new versions of Windows’ driver software.

Driver issues

This usually happens when you upgrade the device drivers for hardware on your system without first uninstalling the previous version of these drivers. Removing these faulty drivers is not enough, however – it is necessary that all references to them are removed from Windows’ system files so that they will not attempt to reinstall themselves during startup. To be completely sure everything is back to normal, it might also be a good idea to check your physical memory for any faults with an error-checking utility before starting up Windows again.

Corrupt BIOS

If you have data/bios corrupt disk boot failure no blue screen windows cannot start up in normal mode or safe mode or some other problem while trying to disk boot failure no blue screen windows cannot start up in normal mode or safe mode you can read this carefully before solving disk boot failure no blue screen windows cannot start up in normal mode or safe mode.

Graphics card or PSU

If none of these suggestions separately seem likely to solve your problem, the chances are that there is a hardware issue involved. There are some rare occasions wherein video card problems can cause issues, but this is most likely to be due to power supply problems or failing memory.

How to fix such issues?

Reset BIOS

The first step if you believe it is a hardware problem would be to reset your BIOS settings back to factory defaults. For more information on how to do this please refer to the documentation for your motherboard – if you have misplaced these then you can usually find help online with just a quick search. After resetting the BIOS settings reboot your PC and see if that clears up any issues, if not move on to checking all of your components one by one until you find out what is causing the issue.


Removing faulty drivers

If one of the many devices installed on your computer is faulty, it could be causing you problems. One frequent cause of system crashes is a faulty hard disk controller driver. Fixing this will often mean getting hold of the correct replacement disk controller driver so that Windows can take control again. You may also have to upgrade your operating system to the latest version to enjoy support for all modern hardware features.

You can also remove faulty drivers by doing a system restore. If the system restore works, you can try reinstalling drivers one by one until you find out which driver is causing the issue.


Finally, contact the device manufacturer if none of these solutions have helped you. If this is a brand new computer that has never worked, it may be broken and you should ask for a refund or replacement under warranty . You can also take your computer to an expert technician for diagnostics and computer repair if all else fails.

If doing any of these things do not solve your problem, consult with family or friends who are more knowledgeable about computers than yourself to find out what they suggest as potential solutions. If they cannot find anything wrong, your only option may be to throw away your defective hardware (unless it was purchased at zero cost). However, if you must keep it due to no other choice but lack of funds for a replacement, your computer might become unusable.
