Prank blue screen of death (SO REALISTIC!!!)
Profile icon

You were playing your favorite video game (which your mom and dad told you specifically not to), when all of a sudden, oh noooes! A BSoD (blue screen of death) appears, you panic, not knowing big boi words. It restarts, then says get fooled! You've been gnomed!

Funny BSOD prank. I tried it out with my dad, he totally got fooled XD. Kinda hard to prank people since it's on a webpage (for the people who know nothing about computers, it may be easy), but nevertheless fun. Looks sooo authentic, I even put real errors in there (yes, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_GREATER_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO is an error)! Hope you like it (hint: works best in full screen) :)

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_GREATER_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO means that there is an issue in your driver software - this can be fixed by reinstalling, updating or uninstalling drivers. Usually this happens because the driver software requests a used memory address so the OS (windows) denies access to the driver which the hardware needs which causes a kernel panic (BSOD)

IRQL_NOT_GREATER_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO is the generic error code.

you can find more info here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/debugger/bug-check-0xa--irql-not-less-or-equal

you don't really get those types of bsods UNLESS windows is modifed via regedit.exe. usually you get something like this:

loading

It has actually happend to me with the code MEMORY_MANAGEMENT which is to do with the Random Access Memory.

But still, pretty good job :)

actually i think there was an error in windows. the camera worked fine when it ran Linux

yeah it is to do with the camera drivers. it is a type of nmi. (non maskable interrupt). Drivers tells Windows on how to use a device.
