I tend to put my rig in Sleep mode when I'm not using it. Just now, after waking it from sleep and inserting my wi-fi adapter into one of the front panel USB 2.0 ports, I got a BSOD; I've gotten them before (and usually had to turn off my PC) but this one barely lasted maybe 5 seconds before going to a black screen and then rebooting. I booted into normal mode of Windows, only to have it happen again. Same duration. On the second boot, everything booted up just fine. I know next to nothing about BSODs, but do know they aren't exactly good things for your PC. What exactly causes them and should I be worried?

Also, once I was able to boot into Windows after the 2nd BSOD, I got this Window popup about Windows having sucessfully recovered from an unexpected shutdown, and this whole list of details about the problem...but I don't understand any of it. Here it is if anyone wants to help:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 116
BCP1: FFFFFA800BE0A010
BCP2: FFFFF88004EB899C
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: 0000000000000002
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1

EDIT: Should have mentioned I'm running Windows 7 64 bit

EDIT 2: Apologies for not posting my system specs. Here they are:

CPU: Intel i3-4160 @ 3.6GHz
RAM: 8GB (2x4) Corsair Vengeance DDR3
MOBO: Gigabyte G1 Sniper Z5S
GPU: Sapphire R9 280X Tri-X
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 1TB 7200 rpm
WiFi: Linksys AE1200 USB adapter

EDIT 3: Renamed the topic

What it means is to look them up, get bluescreen view, or make windows 10 show old blue screen information.

Step 1: Disable automatic restarting on system error.
1. Search for/open/run "System"
2. On the left of the System screen, click on "Advanced system settings."
3. "Advanced" tab (should already be selected).
4. Under "Startup and Recovery," click "Settings"
5. Clear the check box next to "Automatically restart."
6. OK out of everything and close everything else back to the desktop.

Next time it BSODs, the BSOD will stay until power is lost or system is restarted. Note the STOP code (e.g. 0x0000000A) and the file the fault occurred in, if any (e.g. via.sys). Those two bits of information go a long way to finding the root cause of it.

Here is what BSOD codes mean... if that is what you are asking? Title alludes to an answer, not a question like in the first post though.

EDIT: What Cvrk said, lol

Also, no system specs? List them like everyone else, ma'am.

The issue is, your asking for help but the title looks like a BSOD answer sheet. Also you have over 200 posts and your asking for help, you should know by now we need you to fill out your system spec's as it helps us help you.

BSOD Means either a hardware problem or a software / Driver issue. Again your system specs would be most helpful

You can get explanations for most BSOD errors by typing the STOP error code in to your web search bar

You can see the error in the event log. Its just like a ODB II code. Ether its a bad signal or hard error. You can look it up online

Bad signal like a power code when the pcie slot is dirty

Go into Event Viewer, view System logs, look for BUGCHECK. Find the 0x BCCode, Google that. That's where I'd start. :)

By the way, aumha.org is a pretty good reference, it hasn't been updated though to cover 10 but most bsods that are there are also found in 10
It shows the name of the stop code rather than the number unless there isn't a name for it. For example, I've seen IRQL_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL.

Go into Event Viewer, view System logs, look for BUGCHECK. Find the 0x BCCode, Google that. That's where I'd start. :)
FYI, no event will be logged if the BSOD is in the storage subsystem. If it attempts to write it, it could end up overwriting important data, so it doesn't. It always displays something though if it was, in fact, a BSOD because there's no risk in permanent damage doing so.

On a general note, I surprisngly get zero BSODs these days (unlike Windows in previous years).. except when undervolting too much once. I'm surprised anyone gets it for much else.

On a general note, I surprisngly get zero BSODs these days (unlike Windows in previous years).. except when undervolting too much once. I'm surprised anyone gets it for much else.
Most recent one I got was because of a shoddy USB cable on my external DAC. Before that was a plethora of BSODs on an SSD that didn't support newer chipsets. They still happen if the conditions are right.

They happen for the same reasons on 10 as they do prior os's. For the most part, if you got a bsod for a reason in 10, youd get it on down. ;)

Bump. Edited first post to include my current system specs -- no need for some to get nasty about it.

Step 1: Disable automatic restarting on system error.
1. Search for/open/run "System"
2. On the left of the System screen, click on "Advanced system settings."
3. "Advanced" tab (should already be selected).
4. Under "Startup and Recovery," click "Settings"
5. Clear the check box next to "Automatically restart."
6. OK out of everything and close everything else back to the desktop.

Next time it BSODs, the BSOD will stay until power is lost or system is restarted. Note the STOP code (e.g. 0x0000000A) and the file the fault occurred in, if any (e.g. via.sys). Those two bits of information go a long way to finding the root cause of it.
Thank you sir. Did everything you listed. Thanks again.

i did not notice the exclamation mark.
i thought this is gonna be a huge in dept tutorial of all the bsod out there and what to do to prevent them.
@clickbait
No offense, but if you've got nothing of value to add to this discussion, kindly see yourself out rather than call this "clickbait".

Here is what BSOD codes mean... if that is what you are asking? Title alludes to an answer, not a question like in the first post though.

Also, no system specs? List them like everyone else, ma'am.
Updated first post to include them, Dog. And thank you for the link. I'll check that out.

The issue is, your asking for help but the title looks like a BSOD answer sheet.
Well I'm sorry to you and everyone else, I guess. I was merely asking about BSODs. Obviously I don't know anything about them, otherwise I wouldn't be asking about them in a thread, lol.
