Yellow/Orange Screen of Death on Windows 10! (VERY RARE)

I was playing GTA 5 on my Laptop and I made a manually BSOD (Ctrl + Scroll Lock), but then,
It’s suddenly showing Orange Screen of Death that was very rare.

(not modified at all)

it’s not very rare, but a bit Rare:

I got this by:
playing GTA 5 with low end mods on ThinkPad T430, using Windows 10 LTSC 2019.

But when i not playing GTA 5 or do something other, it’s showing BSOD normally.


i guess gta changes some system values when running? this is really weird.

Seems to suggest something related to the GPU, but it’s a manual crash, so, i’m not sure what is going on.

I did it manual, so it’s think that i got GPU error.

Edit: I was able to get it again for second time, so it’s not too rare, It’s was possible because I play GTA 5 in 800x600 on ThinkPad and i got it again.

an update to the kernel changes how screens of death work, it goes a little something like this

  • Blue: an issue occured with the kernel itself
  • Orange: a device (or its driver) malfunctioned and is unsafe to use
  • Green: kernel crash, just on windows insider builds


In a Chinese specially made version (because MS want Chinese government to use Windows 10), the BSOD is green (any BSOD)

the bsod is also green in the insider builds of windows 10 internationally

why does it say that, im kinda confused

He made a manual BSOD.

theres a registry hack(?) which allows a key combination to bsod the computer

He says that he did that.

it never worked for me no matter what
