About Windows 10 PC Green Screen
Everyone’s known about the blue screen of death (BSOD) that appears when your Windows PC crashes. But do you know Windows 10 has a green screen of death? The green screen of death only appears when you’re running an Insider Preview version of Windows 10. It’s the same as the blue screen of death, and it will show this error message:
The error message is similar to the blue screen's error. That means anything that triggers a blue screen of death on a normal version of Windows 10 will trigger a green screen of death on an Insider Preview version of Windows 10. The only difference is this screen says you’re using a "Windows Insider Build" and it has a green background instead of a blue one. Before you fix the Windows 10 green screen error, access your data and save them to another place first.
