Does typing "wininit" into powershell damage your computer?

I am looking to create a manual BSOD from the command line (as I have no Right control nor scroll lock key to trigger "INITIATED_MANUAL_CRASH"). I was curious whether the "wininit" + powershell solution will harm or corrupt my computer in any way. What actually happens when I type wininit to generate the crash? Will it have any lasting effects on my computer?

Hello @MattiaCandotti-3654

You can achieve it with the next steps:

  1. Type in "Regedit" in the Windows 10 search bar

  2. Once you see the "Registry Editor" app pop up, click run as administrator.

  4. Right-click on the right panel, select New, and select "DWORD (32-bit) Value."

Hi @LimitlessTechnology-2700
Thank you for you suggestion, but as I said in my original post, I do not have a Right Control Key nor a Scroll Lock key so this solution will not work for me.
But thank you for your time!
