Windows 10: Regular BSOD after upgrading to windows 10

    Regular BSOD after upgrading to windows 10

    Hi everyone,

    I have recently upgrading to windows 10 on a fairly new machine, after doing so I have had regular BSOD (IRQL unexpected error), there doesn't seem to be much connection between them other than watching videos whilst online. When I got the first one I read a bug fix online which said to fix it either revert back to my previous OS (windows 8) or reinstall windows 10. I did the later thinking I could always revert back if that didn't work but alas it has now gotten rid of that option and the problem still persisted. I downloaded bluescreen view to work out that it was a problem with nwifi.sys driver, and so updated my wifi driver accordingly but the problem still persists. Any help would be appreciated, I hopefully have attached the associated info dump. Any help would be greatly appreciated, please let me know if you need more information.

    All the best,

    Hi AlexWendy,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    The TP-link driver is causing the crashes.
    It seems like the TP-Link driver hasn't been updated.

    Thanks axe0,

    I have reinstalled the driver I am hoping that will fix it (yn). I realised on the driver download site that it doesn't list Windows 10 as a compatible OS but that could be an over sight.

    Anyway thanks a lot,

    If reinstalling helps, the driver was corrupted.
    If reinstalling doesn't help, the driver is incompatible with Windows 10.

    If it is the 2nd, you could upload as many files as you want, but I don't think I could help you further if the same driver keeps causing you the problem.
