  1. BSOD when switching user accounts


    I get a BSOD stating dxgmms2.sys failed when switching from one user account to another if I try to play a video. This occurs when the video starts in many apps, including Netflix, Hulu, Edge, etc.

    This only happens if another user is signed in and we switch users. It does not happen if one user logs out then the other logs in.


    I have a GTX 1070 with the newest drivers installed.

    :)

    I think the simplest way to address this is to make my account an administrator again.
    If it can be done, I'm going to need a step by step on how to do it.
    Let me know what you all think...Thanks...
