Blue screen of death error

Hello,

 

I am running Quartus v18 on windows 10. I am able to run the software, write code, open files, etc. However, when i attempt to download/upload VHDL code from quartus onto the DE0-NANO board (Altera) i instantly get a blue screen error. I have attached a photo of the problem i get after attempting to upload the code. As far as everything else goes in regards to my computer, i have lost no files, no problems opening programs, etc. It seems that the only thing i can't do is this! Thanks in advance and let me know if there is any more details i can provide.

 

Kind regards,

 

Nima

Hi NFarb,

 

I assume that when you mentioned "attempt to download/upload VHDL code from quartus onto the DE0-NANO board" you are actually referring to programming the .sof file. Let me know if you are referring to something else than .sof file. Have you tested using another Win 10 machine or different Quartus version to program the .sof file? I have tried to program the .sof file into our Cylone IV GX dev kit successfully multiple times without any failure. Please try other Win 10 machine with the Quartus programmer to program the .sof file. If you are able to use another Win 10 machine with the Quartus programmer v18 to program the .sof file successful (without BSoD) then the issue is most likely lies with your Win 10 machine itself.
