The Black Screen of Death

We’ve all heard of the famous Blue Screen Of Death.  I remember my first <ahem> Dell.  It ran smoothly for a month or so, then I got the “illegal operation” message..and That Sound.  The sound associated with a Windows error.  It gave me a knot in my stomach.  And I recall saying, “What illegal operation?  I didn’t do anything wrong!”  That was 1997.  So now here’s a story on the Black Screen Of Death.  Must have something to do with this guy is all I can figure.darth-vader-face
