  • Windows 10: How to figure out what the blue screen of death is caused by

    Posted on December 9th, 2016 By Andreas Stenhall + No comments

    Having deployed many thousands of Windows 10 machines over the last year I must say that I am surprised by the large number of blue screens that have occurred and still occur on Windows 10. As always, hardware issues surface when deploying a new OS, but the vast majority of blue screens that occur are actually caused by bad drivers.

    Things are shaping up and nowadays Windows 10 and its drivers are more stable then a year ago but still there are quite a few blue screens caused by primarily bad graphics drivers and not to mention WiFi drivers from the most prominent chipset maker in the business.

    Therefore I have made some updates to this popular guide – troubleshoot and analyze blue screens of death – how to figure out what the infamous blue screen of death is caused by.

    Updating drivers on an active basis is very much necessary in terms of deploying and managing Windows 10 if you want to keep blue screens away!
