    Default How to force a Blue Screen of Death and initiate a system crash in Windows

    At times you may need to intentionally force a Blue Screen of Death and initiate a system crash in Windows for some testing purposes. The default Stop error you see could be MANUALLY_INITIATED_CRASH.

    This MSDN link will show you how you can force a system crash using a keyboard. You need to create a CrashOnCtrlScroll registry setting for that.

    StartBlueScreen is a free tool from Nirsoft that allows you to crash the Windows operating system by initiating a Blue Screen of Death according to 5 parameters that you specify from command-line. It loads a very small device driver named NirSoftBlueScreenDriver.sys that calls the crash API function of Windows Kernel (KeBugCheckEx).
