Getting Blue Screen Of Death (BOSD): Crash PC

Crash PC: You may be surprised to know that Windows has a built-in self-crashing mechanism (no pun intended). Though it is quite easy to crash a Windows box whenever

you doesn’t want it to crash, it may be quite difficult to reproduce the scenario, when you desperately want your box crashed. So here we give you two methods to

Crash PC:

crash your Windows box.
Method 1: Windows Built-in Self Crasher
This method produces the ‘awesome’ BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) that you are no doubt familiar with. The PC gets locked up and the only way to recover is to

reboot it. Just follow these steps:

Run Regedit (Start -> Run -> regedit)
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters
Create a new DWORD value with name CrashOnCtrlScroll and give it a value 1
Reboot the PC

Now whenever you want to see the cute blue screen (and crash your system), press and hold the Ctrl key on the right side of the keyboard and hit the Scroll Lock key
