Problems[edit]

Some security companies send viruses immatating BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) to trick you into buying the product. If this seems to be happening, please contact a professional for help. It may show a BSOD screen multiple times and alert you to install the anti-virus software.

You deleted my image!!![edit]

It was not nice to delete my image. I only put the image on Blue Screen of Death. But since you removed the image from the page, I used a new image with the file named BSoD in Windows 1.0.png. — Preceding unsigned comment added by William Pina (talkcontribs) 22:59, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

As I said in several places, what you are calling "your" image appears to be a copyright violation, the original being http://bsod.org/img/bsod545.gif. You need to address this over at Commons as I have placed a nomination for deletion on it there. Jeh (talk) 23:09, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

ARE YOU IN SAYING?!?!?!?![edit]

You also removed the link to http://bsod.org/faqen.php. Now I have to re-add the link to http://bsod.org/faqen.php, and now you're saying that the sentence, "Please use Linux, because crashing computers are no fun!!!" is INAPPROPRIATE?!?!?!?! NO WAY!!!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by William Pina (talkcontribs) 02:47, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

The word is "insane". And yes, it's grossly inappropriate for an encyclopedia. Please keep your own opinions on your own blog. As I explained above, the link itself isn't appropriate for an encyclopedia either, because the site it links to is both obsolete and of very low quality. Jeh (talk) 02:52, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Last month I got a BSoD when I play a DVD.[edit]

I got the error message detailing the STOP 0x0000008E KERNEL_MODE_EXEPTION_NOT_HANDLED message because the DVD was incompatible with Windows Vista because it was marked as "Not compatible with all devices."

What does this mean? — Preceding unsigned comment added by William Pina (talkcontribs) 02:00, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
