Why is BSOD created?

Why is BSOD created?: This question just pops into my head since I was trying to cure my PC from BSOD and my brother asked me why did Microsoft create such a thing when it only does annoy to the user.

The main reason is to act as a warning that something is seriously wrong with your system, and requires your immediate attention..

The term Blue Screen of Death originated during development of the IBM OS/2 operating system at Lattice Inc, the makers of early Windows and OS/2 compilers. Developers encountered the error screen when bugs in the operating system's software (typically null pointers) slipped through the net during beta testing. In feedback to IBM, a company known informally as 'Big Blue', the developers humorously described the Stop screen as the 'Blue Screen of Death' in consequence of its color, of the association of that color with IBM, and of the finality of the error (which caused the computer to hang without any possibility of recovery, requiring a manual restart.

I don't think this thread should be continued in this forum. This is to get help with a BSOD, not to figure out the history behind it.

The .dmp file contains specific information, when analyzed with specialized software (windbg) that shows what was occurring at the time of the crash ... possible driver conflicts that may have caused the crash, etc..
