    Bluescreen while booting / Bad_System_config_message


    from time to time I get a bluescreen when trying to boot my system. Which driver is causing this? Here is my minidump:

  2. Constant bluescreens - still not fixed

    I don't think you understood my issue - my bluescreens are random, so I can't do a clean boot and provoke a bluescreen. I am not sure what the steps you suggested have anything to do with my problem and it is not clear how it will help. The PC does boot
    up normally, it just crashes randomly during the day.

    I am pretty sure the issue is related to a driver that could be incompatible with Win 10. Please check the older threads to further understand the issue.

    Thank you.

  4. Bluescreen while booting / Bad_System_config_message



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community.

    I understand that it can be frustrating for you when the computer shows bluescreen errors. Bluescreen errors are usually caused due to faulty hardware or drivers. We will try to narrow down the cause of the issue by performing a few steps.

    1. Do you get bluescreen errors randomly or while performing any specific actions such as playing a game or running any particular application?
    2. Do you see any error code along with the message “DRIVERS POWER STATE FAILURE”?
    3. Are there any external devices connected to your computer?

    The usual causes for bluescreen errors are Graphic card drivers and Network adapter drivers. We can go ahead and try to update the drivers.

    Refer the article Update drivers in Windows 10 on how to update Graphic card
    and Network drivers.

    You may also refer the article Troubleshoot blue screen errors
    for additional troubleshooting steps to fix the issue.

    You can reply to this post if you need further assistance

    Hope it helps.
