Are you tierd of waiting BSoD to show up? Take back control of your system and BSoD! Get BSod at any time you want in 4 easy steps:

Ofcourse remeber to turn off automatic restart, to enjoy the beauty! ;)

1) open regedit
2) in registry key[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters] add value "CrashOnCtrlScroll"=dword:00000001
3) reboot
4) press RIGHT CTRL + SCROLL LOCK + SCROLL LOCK

Or in IE type about:mozilla (may not work on SP2).

Hope this was interesanting!
Anyone know more of this tricks?

Now why on earth is there a registry key to enable a manual BSOD? For debugging the BSOD itself, I guess... but still it seems a slightly odd thing to leave in RTM code.

Yes, it's for debugging. During blue screen, system dumps memory to harddisk (in windows folder), so it could be useful dor debugging, or stealing information :)

Thanks. :) But I think one of us (possibly me) is misunderstanding the other. I know what a BSOD is - it just seemed an odd thing to want to cause the computer to crash - unless, of course, you wanted to debug the error reporting system (as I said). In the case that it was for debugging, why leave it in the release-to-market code?

I've got an ISA card dump switch, it came from an old NCR server, I thought it was just for NCR's UNIX that was installed. Has AT&T copywrite printed on the board.

It would be a really useful thing for OS developing I think.
