    Interesting. The procedure I have described above replace the default W8-x BSOD message (with stupid smiley) with the W7-0 detailed one on the display.
    If you want to test the changed output on monitor, just hot-unplug the system drive. :)))

    Tks moderate, nah, I am no win tester and I am not that fanatic. :p

    .... btw, you might have a chance to test it on 982x, but first need to polish your Chinese (reminder: take it with a full truckload of salt). :D

    Since Windows XP, you can actually force a BSOD the non-brutal way (for debugging purposes).

    Prerequisites:
    Code:
    1. Open the registry editor
    2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters
    3. Create a new DWORD with the name CrashOnCtrlScroll and set its value to 1
    4. Close the registry editor and restart Windows
    After reboot, you can trigger a BSOD when you hold down the right CTRL key and press SCROLL-LOCK twice. Just zero CrashOnCtrlScroll or remove the value to disable this "feature" again.
