    Time: May. 13, 2020

    Method 1 – Tweaking Power Savings Options 


    Press the Windows key from your computer and type in Control Panel then press Enter.

     

     

     

     

    Now select Small icons from the top right corner view options.

     

     

     

     

    Now click on Power Options from there.

     

     

     

    Click on Change Plan settings while Balanced is selected.

     

     

     

     

    After that click Change Advanced Power Settings. 

     

     

     

     

    Expand Wireless Adapter Settings and under Power Saving Mode, select Maximum Performance.

     

     

     

     

    Now expand PCI Express by clicking the plus icon followed by Link state power management and then select

    Moderate power savings from the settings. Then click Apply and then OK.

    Now restart your computer and check if you still get the BSOD error. If yes then follow method 2 given below.

     

    Method 2 – Removing and Reinstalling Driver in Safe Mode


    At this point we will try to get rid of the problematic drivers that’s causing the BSOD error. After starting in either

    regular mode or “Safe mode” log onto Windows with administrators account (if you have more than one user account)

    ·Windows 7 users navigate to Start >> Control Panel and then click ‘Device Manager’ under icon view.

    ·Windows 8 and 10 users can open device manager by pressing ‘Windows Key + R’ and then type in devmgmt.msc in the Run box and hit Enter.

    ·On the “Device manager” window, expand the category of the device that has some issues (usually the ones with a yellow icon). Otherwise you

    have to kind of guess which device driver might be causing the issue here.

    ·Once a list of drivers have been expanded, right-click the driver of the problematic device that is to be uninstalled.

    ·Then click “Uninstall” to remove the selected driver.

    ·Make sure to select “confirm device uninstall”

    ·Once the affected driver has been uninstalled, the computer will then need to be restarted for the driver to be completely removed.
