Force Windows Vista to Crash to Blue Screen

There is a registry hack that allows you to make Windows Vista crash to a blue screen of death whenever you want.

1. Hold down the Windows Key and press R. Type REGEDIT.

2. Click the plus sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
then CurrentControlSet
then Services

then i8042prt
then click Parameters

3. Double-click on CrashOnCtrlScroll and set the value to 1 to enable this feature.

Restart the computer. Now when you hold down the CTRL key and press the SCROLL LOCK key two times, Windows Vista will automatically crash to a BSOD.

An alternate way to make Vista crash would be to simply use Windows Vista. 😉
