A Guide to the BUGCODE PSS CRASH DONE Blue Screen of Death Error

The BUGCODE_PSS_CRASH_DONE BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error may appear during the initialization process for Windows. It means that the physical memory dump is complete and the emergency shutdown of the computer to prevent data loss from unsaved work.


The physical memory dump error means that the files and programs that are running during that period are transferred to a hidden folder for analysis later. This error usually occurs due to the presence of damaged or corrupted driver software in the registry, and when there are too many programs running at the same time. Other contributing factors are overclocking, overheating, and an underpowered system.

This BSOD error is also known as “BUGCODE_PSS_CRASH_DONE” and “STOP 0x4000008D“. Some users of Windows have reported this error, which normally appears on the screen during the initialization of the system

You can resolve the BUGCODE PSS CRASH DONE BSOD error by employing the Last Known Good configuration feature of Windows. This operating system utility allows you to restore the computer to the latest settings that allowed the computer to function smoothly. To do this, you have to restart the computer and then click F8 when the character-mode menu that presents the operating system choices is displayed on the screen. Click on the Advanced Options Menu, use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press Enter.

Alternatively you can use Driver Reviver to update your computer drivers. If an out of date driver is the cause of the problem then this will fix the problem.

If the error is caused by the overclocking of the CPU, you can resolve the issue by returning the CPU to the default clock speed settings. It is also advisable to check the adequacy of the power supply, clean the PC of accumulated dust, and check the efficiency of the installed fans in the CPU and the power source to prevent overheating.
