Drivers on your CD might be outdated a bit, but they might work better than the default Windows 10 drivers.
1.2 Update drivers automatically
Searching for drivers on your own can be time-consuming. So, we advise you to use a tool that will do this for you automatically.
Using an automatic driver updater will certainly save you from the hassle of searching for drivers manually, and it will always keep your system up to date with the latest drivers.
The solution recommended below will help you update drivers automatically and prevent PC damage caused by installing the wrong driver versions.
After several tests, our team concluded that this is the best-automatized solution.
2. Run the BSoD troubleshooter
- Open the Settings app and go to Update & Security section.
- Select Troubleshoot from the menu on the left.
- Select BSoD from the right pane and click Run the troubleshooter.
- Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the troubleshooter.
If updating your drivers didn’t resolve the problem, we’re going to use Windows 10’s troubleshooting tools.
The first tool we’re going to use is the built-in troubleshooter that can be found in the Settings app.
You can use this tool to resolve all sorts of issues within the system, including BSoDs.
3. Run the SFC scan
- Right-click on the Start Menu button, and open Command Prompt (Admin).
- Enter the following line and press Enter: sfc/scannow
- Wait until the process is done (it may take a while).
- If the solution is found, it will automatically be applied.
- Now, close the Command Prompt and restart your computer.
The next troubleshooter we’re going to try is the SFC scan. This tool scans your system for potential issues and resolves them.
If the solution is possible, of course. The SFC scan can be helpful when resolving BSOD problems, as well.
4. Run DISM
4.1 Run DISM the standard way
- Type cmd in the search windows and click on Run as administrator to start Command Prompt with full privileges.
- Paste the following command and press Enter:
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
- Wait until the scan is finished.
- Restart your computer and try updating again.
4.2 Run DISM using the Windows installation media
- Insert your Windows installation media.
- Start Command Prompt as administrator as shown in the previous solution.
- In the command line, type the following commands and press Enter after each:
dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
- Now, type the following command and press Enter:
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:SourcesInstall.wim:1 /LimitAccess
- Make sure to change an X value with the letter of the mounted drive with Windows 10 installation.
- After the procedure is finished, restart your computer.
And the third troubleshooter we’re going to use is DISM. Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) is a powerful tool that reloads the system image.
So, it can also resolve potential BSOD errors. We offered you both standard and the procedure that utilizes the installation media above.
