The Win2k.sys crash is commonly associated with the "Blue Screen Of Death" caused by a bad driver or a bad piece of hardware on your computer. This typically occurs after a new piece of hardware has been installed. If the hardware is not compatible with the computer, the Blue Screen Of Death will appear. If you haven't installed any new hardware, this could be attributed to bad software. The easiest way to combat the BSOD is to perform a Windows Update per the Microsoft guidelines.

    Remove any recently installed hardware and make sure it is compatible with your computer. Restart the computer to see if this fixes your system.

  3. 3

    Click "Start" and go to the "Control Panel" option. Click on the "Windows Update" icon from the menu.

    Click "Check for updates."

  5. 5
