If you get a BSOD, is it necessary to do a chkdsk? What would be the
consequence of not doing a chkdsk?

No...

What would be the consequence of not doing a chkdsk?
1) Your disk wouldn't get checked
2) If caught, you'll get 90 days in jail and a $500 fine.

Any errors your file system has may snowball over time until there are
serious errors and/or corruption occurs, so, for example the OS won't load,
or some program may crash consistently because one of it's DLL's is damaged.

You can run chkdsk from a command prompt and it will notify you if you have
any errors that need fixing. Typing chkdsk will run in read-only mode, so it
won't do any harm.

Running chkdsk after a crash isn't a bad idea, as some file/file system
corruption may occur as a result of the crash.

It would depend on the nature of the BSOD. What is the Stop Error
message?

Hope this helps.
