The dreaded Blue Screen of Death or BSOD occurs when Windows has a fatal system crash due to any number of reasons. It was very prominent in Windows (95, 98, 98SE, ME) and wasn't much of an issue when 2k Pro and XP came along due to better protection of DLL's not allowing them crash the kernel. Some people have still been able to BSOD an XP znd 2K Pro box though I have yet to see it myself.

Here is a pic, BSOD.
