When you receive a STOP error, Windows displays the STOP on a Blue screen, hence the name BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death).
If you prefer a Red screen with White text, or any other color combination that is easier for you to see:
1. Open %SystemRoot%\SYSTEM.INI in Notepad.exe.
2. Locate the \[386enh\] section.
3. If the MessageBackColor= and MessageTextColor= entries are present, change them. Otherwise, add them to the end of the section. To have a Red screen with White text, use:
MessageBackColor=4 MessageTextColor=FUsing the following codes (case is important):
0 = black 1 = blue 2 = green 3 = cyan 4 = red 5 = magenta 6 = brown 7 = white 8 = gray 9 = bright blue A = bright green B = bright cyan C = bright red D = bright magenta E = bright yellow F = bright white4. Save the changes to the %SystemRoot%\SYSTEM.INI file.
5. Shutdown and restart your computer.
