If the problem occurred after installing Windows or Microsoft updates, then undo them. You can do so either by uninstalling the updates or restoring your computer to an earlier date or time. This will slip back the changes and save your computer from crippling. Remember doing this will undo all the changes including the installation of a new program or add-on etc. or the addition of a document or a new song to the video or audio library etc. When done, update drivers of your hardware devices. Besides, reinstall latest Windows updates after a short while.
Download and install a registry repair tool on your computer. Before you start running the tool, you must back up your registry. When done, run the registry cleanerrepair tool and fix the empty and/or damaged registry entries and keys. This should fix the BSOD problem without any fail if there was no other severe issue your computer had. If the problem persists, move on to next step.
Viruses, Trojan horses, spyware, or other such malicious infections are a major cause of the BSOD error. Since Windows tries to prevent an infection from entering its kernel system, it shows the BSOD error. Thus, you must run a full virus scan from your anti-virus program. Cleanse the infected files that were brought in the scan result by the antivirus program. Afterwards, you must also run an online virus scan to double make sure that no virus infection remains in your computer. Certain virus or malware infections are too powerful that they can easily dodge your antivirus software and continue their destructive action. You can run a free online virus scan from a trusted website like Trend Micro.
If you cannot access above mentioned programs or utilities on your computer, try to bring up Task Manager by pressing the Alt, Ctrl, and Delete keys together on the keyboard. When the Task Manager window opens up, highlight the Processes tab and look for explorer.exe in the currently running processes. Click on the explorer.exe process and hit the End Process button to end it. Start a new task and then check whether you can access your Desktop or other applications or not.
If you cannot access Task Manager or anything at all on your computer screen and continues to see only a black screen, try this. Grab your original Windows 7 setup disk and insert it into the drive of your computer. Choose to repair Windows 7 using the built-in Windows diagnostic and repair tool.
