    Not 100%, but a guess would to be to OC your processor to an unreasonable number or your RAM in the BIOS. But then again, just a few guesses, I don't know.

    BSOD in XP? Easy: unplug the hard drive while it's running. XP may not die immediately, but die it will.

    I tried it on Windows 7 once though and while it went a bit funny, I couldn't make it crash. I kept it like this for a good 10 minutes or so. I didn't think this was possible, so I was really amazed by this crash-proof performance.

    Why do you want to to do this, anyway?
