How to track BLUE SCREEN error on Windows

I have been victim of this problem number of times.Doing some important work and suddenly experiences following SURPRISE

A lot of times a blue screen happens very quickly which you can’t even see what are the error messages and your computer got restarted.The memory crash dump are usually saved in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump and C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP

So I came across a tool,BlueScreenView which scans all your mini dump files created during 'blue screen of death' crashes, and displays the information about all crashes in one table.

For each crash, BlueScreenView displays the mini dump filename, the date/time of the crash, the basic crash information displayed in the blue screen (Bug Check Code and 4 parameters), and the details of the driver or module that possibly caused the crash (filename, product name, file description, and file version).

# BlueScreenView Features

1. Automatically scans your current minidump folder and displays the list of all crash dumps, including crash dump date/time and crash details.

2.Allows you to view a blue screen which is very similar to the one that Windows displayed during the crash.

3.BlueScreenView enumerates the memory addresses inside the stack of the crash, and find all drivers/modules that might be involved in the crash.

BlueScreenView also provides options for command line so that this program can be triggered easily.
