The RSOD (Red Screen of Death) error is a rare but devastating error that occurs in Windows. As I said before, it is a rare error that usually does not occur. However, when it does occur, the system is not working properly and should be fixed as soon as possible.
This error usually occurs among iPhone 6, iPhone 5S and other smartphone users, as well as PC/laptop users. The user may see full screen mode in red with a few words about the error or sometimes no words on their system. The PC crashes, won’t allow changes to be made and no longer accepts keyboard or mouse commands.
Just like a blue screen of death or BSOD error, a red screen of death or RSOD is a Windows error. Well, it’s a rather unusual error that happens on very rare occasions. When it appears, there is nothing users can do and they have to manually restart their system.
There are many reasons that cause Windows RSOD error. Below are all the details about the red screen of death in Windows 10.
Remove overclocking settings.
Overclocking means changing the hardware clock frequency, multiplier or voltage so that the hardware performs at its best. Users often overclock the system processor or graphics processor. In addition to improving performance, it can also increase the heat output of the processor or graphics processor. Overheating can lead to instability in the computer’s CPU or GPU, and sometimes it can cause permanent damage to the system’s hardware.
So, it is clear that overclocking is not just for ordinary users, as it can damage your entire system. If you are suffering from red screen with death error in Windows 10, it is recommended to remove all overclocking settings as soon as possible.
Try BIOS / UEFI system update
BIOS / UEFI of an outdated system can cause Windows 10 red screen error. Therefore, it is recommended to update your system BIOS / UEFI as soon as possible to solve this problem.
How to update BIOS / UEFI?
Updating BIOS / UEFI is not an easy task. Updating BIOS is really difficult, especially for the average user. Because a small error can permanently damage your computer. First, you need to visit your motherboard manufacturer’s website and download the latest BIOS / UEFI version. Most motherboard manufacturers have instructions on how to update the BIOS on their websites. So please read these steps carefully.

Update the video card driver or go back to the default settings
Many users fix the red screen error by updating the video card driver. You can try this if the above solutions did not fix the problem. It’s also worth going back to your computer’s default video card reader.
To update the video card driver, you need to download the latest version of the video card driver from the manufacturer’s website or from the official Microsoft website.
Follow these steps to return to the default settings.
