Analyse Blue Screen of Death minidump files

If you have been working on your system for some time now then you must have seen Blue Screen error screen also known as Blue Screen of Death. While the blue screen error screen is a result of some software or hardware malfunction, it contains some information in hex code.

With the help of a utility called BlueScreenView, you can analyse the minidump files that are created after the Blue Screen crashes.

BlueScreenView scans all your minidump files created during ‘blue screen of death’ crashes, and displays the information about all crashes in one table. For each crash, BlueScreenView displays the minidump filename, the date/time of the crash, the basic crash information displayed in the blue screen (Bug Check Code and 4 parameters), and the details of the driver or module that possibly caused the crash (filename, product name, file description, and file version).

For each crash displayed in the upper pane, you can view the details of the device drivers loaded during the crash in the lower pane. BlueScreenView also mark the drivers that their addresses found in the crash stack, so you can easily locate the suspected drivers that possibly caused the crash.

The tool works on all versions of Windows both 32 and 64 bits, and as long as Windows is configured to save the minidump files after BSOD crashes.
