Multiple ways to force windows bsod

Method 1, using Keyboard

Click on Start. In Windows XP, also click on Run.
In the search box (Windows 7 or Vista) or in the text box in the Run window (Windows XP), type regedit and click OK.

This will open the Registry Editor program.
Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder under My Computer and click on the (+) sign next the folder name to expand the folder.
Continue to expand folders until you reach the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt registry key.
Select the Parameters key under i8042prt.
From the menu, select Edit, then New and finally DWORD Value.
On the right-hand side of the screen, a new value will appear. Name this new value CrashOnCtrlScroll. The value must be named this exactly to function properly.
Double-click on the CrashOnCtrlScroll DWORD value you just created and set the Value data to 1.
Click OK and then close Registry Editor.
Restart your computer and log back in to Windows as you normally do.
To generate the BSOD, press and hold the Ctrl key on the right side of the keyboard while you press the Scroll Lock key twice in quick succession.

Warning: Your system will lock up and need to be restarted after causing the BSOD so make sure any work you are doing is saved and all programs are closed before initiating the keystrokes above.
The BSOD will appear on screen.

Method 2- Changing registry entry:
If your BIOS can switch your system's hard drive adapter between native SATA and legacy ATA mode (and possibly IRRT), switching to a different mode Windows was installed in will usually produce a BOOT_VOLUME_INACCESSIBLE error.
Change the registry entry [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\intelide] start value from 0 to 3  and reboot Windows.

Method 3- Powershell
Windows power shellcommand  

               get-process | stop-process –force

Method 4
Disabling ACPI (if possible on your BIOS) when Windows was installed with ACPI enabled will also result in a bluescreen on boot.
