RSOD (Red Screen of Death) is a rare, but damaging error which appears on XP and Vista Operating Systems. Unlike the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) it is a really serious error that can render your computer unusable. The reason why this happens is, because it's a critical error of the system itself or an attempt by a malicious program to modify the critical system files. This can also happen when the boot loader becomes corrupted which means that you cannot boot into Windows. Nowadays the RSOD is replaced by different variations of Blue Screens of Deaths. In the older days of Windows 98 this screen also appeared too and in software consoles like the Playstation also showed the red screen and a kindle fire icon indicating it was bricked. Other game consoles like the Xbox One had their own versions of the Screen of Death and IOS Devices including the Ipod Touch also had White Screens of Death.
