Why Does Windows Crash?

There are many reasons for Windows crashes, such as hardware conflict, hardware issues, file system corruption, virus attacks, and so on. When Windows crashes, we should detect if it is a hardware issue, such as whether a hardware has recently been replaced or a new hardware has been added. After we confirm that it is not a hardware issue, we can try using the Windows installation CD/DVD or third-party software to repair the Windows system. If Windows cannot be fixed, then we have to reinstall Windows. However, if the Windows operating system partition is encrypted by BitLocker, we will not be able to use the Windows installation CD/DVD or third-party software to repair windows, in which case we have to reinstall the Windows operating system.
