To my experience of Windows7 over the past few months (about 17 months by now), I had never seen a Blue Screen in Windows 7 (Ultimate and Professional versions) which I have been using unless this morning. To my surprise, Win7 proved that still it retains some flaws of Win Vista.
Though there were no any hardware or software changes to my custom made HP Pavilion CTO machine, Windows 7 suddenly crashed and showed Blue Screen. I was not able to capture the blue screen since it was a short lived. Just a flash of blue screen came and disappeared.
Windows 7 retains Blue Screen problem I knew then. The screenshot taken after the Windows recovered from that unexpected shutdown is shown with error codes below.
Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown. Windows can check online for a solution to the problem the next time you go online. (No wonder the machine was connected to internet.)

I am not confident is this blue screen death screen was showing 0x0000008 only or 1000008e error. However, Microsoft has dedicated an entire section to solve blue screen issues on their pages. Visit Official Windows 7 Bluescreen pages Now.
If there are other options for solving this blue screen error in Windows 7, I shall prompt to this blog post.
