I've never gotten it while playing SRB2. In fact, I've never gotten it on this computer. I did get it sometimes on my last two computers though, especially the very last one. Your problem might stem from your graphics card getting overtaxed or something.

XP and beyond shouldn't even display it anymore. Normally, they just reboot when they crash.

Well, yeah, but I would see the BSOD for a second or two before the computer rebooted.

I've gotten it sometimes. It never did kill any of the computers I've used.

Oddly enough, I believe I've gotten it on my Windows Vista laptop a couple of times. Hrm...

XP and beyond don't have the traditional BSOD, but it's sure as hell still there. Usually driver related, or due to dodgy hardware.

Yes I have had it, multiple times.

I've had it many times. If Gunz the Duel is open and I try to plug in my USB mouse I get BSOD 100% of the time.

If you get a BSOD that says

Address: 00x00000000

You sir, are fucked, good day, time to upgrade.

Once upon a time...

There was a kid who had a computer that had a blue screen once a week. He searched and searched for a solution to his fatal problem, but alas! There was none. Until one day he found this cool little thing call Linux... ...and he never had another blue screen of death.

Yes, when I used to use Windows, I had blue screens every once in a while. But thanks to Linux, I haven't had one for a year now, and I'm not gonna get one!

This topic has a lot of misinformation.

Let's start with the basics...

The Blue Screen of Death is Windows' Kernel Panic (effective within the NT family, which includes Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, and others...). A kernel panic happens when the operating system kernel encounters an unrecoverable error. Examples of such errors include memory management corruption (from faulty RAM sticks), or some other hardware defect or a driver error (on Linux, kernel panics from faulty hardware/drivers are much less common due to the nature of sound servers and the X.org Server. If a video driver fails, X.org Server may crash or freeze, but you won't get a kernel panic).

Also: Do note that the Windows 95 family (which included 98 and ME) handled the BSoD differently. Here, it did not serve explicitly as a kernel panic but also showed up for non-fatal errors (such as unresponsible programs).

Uhh... "overtax"? How the heck do you "overtax" a graphics card? It's the same as "overtaxing" a CPU. It'll just take longer to carry out the desired operations. You can't crash a system by "overtaxing". Please. That's ridiculous. If anything, it's a buggy driver.

They still display it. It's just that by default Windows has the retarded behavior of restarting the system after the memory dump is complete, instead of allowing users to actually read what the error says. This results in confusion. Turning off the automatic restart is easy enough. Right-click Computer, go to Properties, and under Vista/7 you must also navigate to Advanced system settings. Look under Startup and Recovery.

This is the improper reaction to any kind of kernel panic. A BSoD does not mean, "throw me out," it means, "I'm running into issues. Please fix them."

Hastily jumping to conclusions, are we?

That's because... Linux doesn't use the BSoD for its kernel panic. And as described above, just because you may have better protection from kernel panics, doesn't mean you aren't going to experience crashes or lockups.

To the original poster: Please at least update your graphics drivers. And if you're on integrated graphics, I highly suggest you look into purchasing discrete graphics, as they are much, much better than integrated in almost every way.

No, you can just find the faulty driver and remove it. Anything messing with the address null is probably a faulty driver since the NT kernel itself is too well programmed to encounter these errors most of the time. Faulty drivers can be found via the Interactive Startup (or whatever it's called) option and seeing which driver causes the error by stepping through one at a time.

I see one about every week at work(Computer service shop) and it's always driver related.

Overtaxing no, Fawful I think you mean 'overclocking'?

This would be an issue regarding your computer, not SRB2. Probably a funky driver issue. Try updating your graphic drivers and see what happens.

...And what the hell do antivirus programs have to do with BSoD? BSoD is a system error generally caused by hardware/driver issues and is NOT caused (at least, not directly) by malware.
