Find out more about how to go about these suggestions.

Run the “Blue Screen Troubleshooter”

For users’ convenience, Microsoft has given a Blue Screen Troubleshooter in order to solve the specific issues directly in the Settings app on your Windows 10 PC. In the Settings page, you will need to select Blue Screen under the Find and Fix other problems option. After that, you merely have to apply the things that are recommended and then close the Troubleshooter.

Use the “Driver Verifier.”

Also, you can run the Driver Verifier program on your system. Doing so will help to troubleshoot, identify and fix common device driver errors/problems.  This program is built to detect the list of unsigned drivers in the system which causes the BSOD.

After doing this, the devices will be able to be troubleshot from the list by downloading a new version, deleting it from the system, and allowing Windows to fix it for you. Also, you can choose to Rollback, Update, Turn Off or Uninstall the specific Driver.

Run the “Online Blue Screen Troubleshooter” of Microsoft.

Directly go to the Microsoft site to run the online Blue Screen Troubleshooter. A simple wizard will appear from the front, through the process of troubleshooting Blue Screens.

Update the “SSD firmware.”

If an SSD has recently been installed in your PC and you now have started getting this issue, you are recommended to upgrading the SSD firmware. To do so, you can download the Intel Solid State Drive Toolbox by visiting its official website. Thus, it is compatible with Windows 7 and all the newer versions of Windows including Windows 10.

Update or Re-install the device driver of recently installed hardware

If you have newly installed new hardware, without updating the driver, you may have to either update its driver or uninstall and then reinstall its driver. You take the help of Device Manager. Or else, you can simply download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.

Disable the “Hardware Acceleration”

You can also try disabling the Hardware Acceleration system-wide or for a particular program like Chrome and check if that helps you fix the bug.

All the best!
