    I thought i was crazy it happened in a few perfectly fine working computers, diagnosed the hell of them and never found a real cause, then migrated them to windows 10, boom no more bsod o_O

    Are you sure isn't hardware related BSODs?

    I OC one particular system that has been rock solid until the last couple updates. Had to clock it back a few notches. If anyone is OCing, might try dropping a MHz or so.

    Me thinks paranoia is at work here folks. I'm running 5 Win 7 desktops & 3 laptops all with latest updates (minus Win 10) NO BSOD's ever!!!

    Running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate on a Home theater PC and a gaming machine (dual boot with 10)....both ROCK SOLID, no problems...

    In fact I think on my gaming machine, Windows 7 runs better and faster than Windows 10...but, to each their own :)

    My Windows 7 is rock solid. I turned updates off completely and I use the Simplix pack.

    @gorski: Is it a specific machine or has it been a few machines that are giving you BSODs?

    And Please...as much info as you can provide. It helps us to help you. :)

    Yeah, thanx to all of you!

    As you can see, I am asking (first)...

    In the meantime, I read more and more and found lots of people with similar problems, throughout the net, sadly... Even here!

    And it's a laptop, really nicely put together by PC Specialists.co.uk, which worked brilliantly for quite a while... Until this W10 palaver started...

    I spoke to some developers and they confirmed my fears, that it is not just by chance, as it were... We are being pushed to W10!

    I have everything done afresh and the latest drivers etc. I do not have the knowledge to check the HW for causes of this...

    But it looks quite unlikely even if a lay person says it - it's not old, quite good, really...

    The age or specs of the hardware has nothing to do with anything, faults can occur with anything, if it's 1 day old and cost £10,000, or 20 years old and cost £5

    Check your event logs, and bluescreen viewer, see what the cause is instead of guessing

    Yeah, very clever, as if that is some feat...

    But if that log is cagey, to say the least and when you check it on the internet and it still is written in gibberish, saying nothing concrete (as if this is strange, coming from M$) - then what?

    How come Linux doesn't suffer from anything of the sort?!?

    HW? Yeah, right...

    Just another thought...were all these drivers on your fresh install the same ones as your previous system before the Win 10 crap problems?
    A recent experience I had with a clean install;
    I reinstalled all the same driver versions as previous, fully updated WU, then a few days later with new WU I noticed there was a brand new Intel graphics driver update in 'optional updates'.
    So I installed it along with the several important updates...within a couple days I had 3 bsods...
    Reverted the Intel graphics driver back to previous, and it's back to rock solid for months.
    Updating ALL your drivers to 'latest and greatest' versions isn't always the best option, especially when your Windows 7 was rock solid last year.
    You may have already used your previous drivers to troubleshoot this issue, but thought I'd put it out there anyway.
    :)

    Thanx!

    I have had a BSOD on this install before I updated (I did manage to update the drivers, though). I struggled, as I said, to get the WU and finally succeeded - a day work, as it were... So far, knock on wood, no BSODs...

    And you are right, albeit in reverse: I think I saw Intel's new driver in the last update, as "optional"...

    Uhhh, we'll see.... It's a struggle for no reason, as it were...

    Cheers!

    If you can't determine the cause of a BSOD using event logs, bluescreeen viewer and google, you shouldn't own a computer, give it to someone with a brain

    (OP)
    Brain is something you are missing. Anyone who thinks of others as if they have to be the same as him is close to autism, if I am nice. If I am not nice, than you are utterly unintelligent.

    I suppose you own a TV, car, microwave, fridge and so on. Perhaps you have never sent anything to a professional for repair. You repair EVERYTHING you own by yourself?

    Yeah, well, in that case, you should go back to caves. I think you may well belong there, with such "manners"....

    Yep... because that made loads of sense...

    And yes, I repair everything myself, you know why? Because I can.
