Force Blue Screen In Windows | Force Users To Shutdown Windows

Take the Blue Screen of Death, a Windows mainstay for more than a decade. It’s still alive and well in Vista, but now it has a cousin: the Green Ribbon of Death. Read More on Blue Blue Screen Of Death And Green Ribbon of Death On Windows Follow This Link.

Often, you'd never ever want to see a blue screen. Even so, you can force one to happen at any time Windows is loaded. But sometimes, you want a blue screen, like when your sister  / or brother is listening to some songs (or what ever) on your PC and want it to stop. 

Here's How:

Warning: It is adviced to backup your registry before editing.
  1. Boot up your PC.
  2. Load windows in ADMINISTRATOR mode, a standard account (limited) will not work because you're modifying the system registry.
  3. Open the Registry Editor. To do this press Windows-R (hold down Windows and press R) and enter (without the quotes) "regedit" and click OK.
  4. In the left column in the Registry Editor, click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then Services, then i8042prt, then Parameters (for the geeks, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters).
  5. Click Edit -> New -> DWORD Value or DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  6. Call the new value (without the quotes) "CrashOnCtrlScroll".
  7. Change the value to 1 (0x00000001)
  8. Close the Registry Editor and restart your computer.
  9. Hold down the right Control key then press the Scroll Lock key twice, then a blue screen should pop up.

  • This will work even if the system's running very slow or you can move the cursor but nothing works.
  • Make sure you are editing the right path. Doing so may cause stability problems or even prevent you from booting in the first place.
  • Also, do not edit anything else or you risk ruining something if you don't know what you're doing.
  • You need to be running Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or 7 Beta or RC. Windows Me or earlier will NOT work.
