MANUALLY_INITIATED_CRASH error usually happens due to the user’s intention to initiate a crash dump from either the keyboard or the kernel debugger.

Common Causes of This BSOD Error

MANUALLY_INITIATED_CRASH error in Windows sometimes occurs due to a recent upgrade of Windows 10, damaged files, and issues with data storage. Not to mention the malfunction of devices that are connected using USB ports and connection of mouse and keyboard in the old format that can also cause the crash and BSOD error.

The usual cause of these crashes is the lack of space on the hard disk. In this case, the error occurs because the system needs free space to operate smoothly. 

For example, Windows 10 requires 2-10 GB of free space for its update. Other common issues that trigger any errors are Compatibility issues and Driver issues.

Another cause that we can think of, and add to that long list is the issue of damaged Windows Registry which on the other hand can be caused by Malware that then can lead to Blue Screen errors.
