Blue screens can happen for many reasons. If you get a malfunction in your Windows 10 device, it may indicate a bad driver, incompatible hardware, or in some cases improper power settings.
Fortunately, fixing this error is relatively simple. We have put together 6 solutions below that you can try to fix the error. You may not have to try them all. Simply work your way down the list until you find the one that works for you.
- Remove external hardware
- Uninstall the problematic driver
- Update device drivers
- Refresh your Windows 10 PC
Solution 1: Remove external hardware:
External hardware connected to your computer, if not working properly, can create computer problems like this. To find out, try disconnecting the peripheral device (speaker, printer, scanner, USB drive, etc.) and restarting the computer.
If your computer is running right after removing the external hardware, it means that one of your hardware is causing the problem. You should put all devices back in your computer and test it every time. Then you will find the device that is causing the problem. Install / update your device driver once you have identified it.
Solution 2: Uninstall the problematic driver:
Windows will display the status of your device in Device Manager. If your device does not work properly - say the driver is missing or damaged, you will see a yellow exclamation mark at the top of the device icon. In this case, fix the issue if you removed the driver.
Follow the instructions below:
- Put your computer in safe mode if it does not start properly.
- Press the Windows and R logo keys on the keyboard at the same time to bring up the Run box.
- Enter devmgmt.msc and click OK.
Solution 3: Update device drivers
One of the most common causes of this problem is obsolete drivers. Whether you choose to manually update your device drivers, use Windows Update, or use a reliable third-party product, you need to always have the latest correct drivers for your operating system.
If you do not like playing with device drivers, we recommend using Driver Booster Pro Crack. Driver Iobit Pro c will automatically identify your system and find the correct drivers for it. You do not have to know exactly what system your computer is running, you do not have to worry about the wrong driver being downloaded and you do not have to worry about making a mistake while installing it.
You can update your drivers automatically with the FREE version or the Pro version of Driver Booster Pro Crack. But with the Pro version, it only takes 2 steps (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):
- Start your computer in Safe Mode.
- Easy driver download and installation.
- Run Iobit Driver and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and diagnose any troubleshooting drivers.
- Click the update button next to the driver you want to download the correct version of the driver and install it manually one by one (you can do this with the FREE version).
- Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of any missing or outdated drivers on your system (this requires the Pro version - it is recommended that you update when you click Update All).
- Restart your computer and check if driver power failure is resolved.
If the problem persists, proceed with the next solution.
