    I now disabled removing dump files. Stupid of me to realize this now... Anyway, I must've ran CCleaner after the last BSOD sometime and I haven't had any after those 3, as I said. Just freezing of different programs and keyboard/touchpad and other minor problems daily.

    First thing I would do is to make sure the drivers from the CPU, GPU, network card, chipset and all others are up to date.

    Thank you, that's what I probably should do. I checked Windows update, and I had no updates available. How should I check that the drivers are up to date? Should I just look at the manufacturers' websites or is using some program to find drivers recommended?

    With laptops, it is highly recommended to only install the drivers from the manufacturer which in your case is Lenovo.
    Lenovo should provide you the right drivers for everything.

    I can probably get the needed drivers from here Laptops and netbooks :: Yoga Series :: Yoga 13 Notebook IdeaPad - Lenovo Support (US) (the site is in Finnish there). When looking at drivers for Windows 10, there are 12 drivers. So how can I know which ones I need? Can I see the current driver versions I have on my computer somewhere? And should I get the newest drivers for everything?

    You can sort the drivers per part, simply install every driver that there is.

    In device manager you can see what driver version you have.

    You should keep your drivers up to date as you have a laptop.

    I installed the first 6 drivers, though not Lenovo power management since the setup wizard didn't start up. I figured I should restart, so I did and now it has just been saying "restarting" for 10 minutes. I guess I have to shut it down... Should I download all the other drivers after that? And are the old drivers removed automatically?

    Wait for it to finish, interrupting could make things worse

    I just had to shut it down after 30 minutes, I just thought nothing new would happen. It wasn't even saying "updating", just "restarting", so it hadn't shut down yet. But everything seems fine with the system. I suppose I will download the other drivers now and restart again. Is there some time limit, after which I should shut it down, if it seems to get stuck again? There can't be any other way to get out of that situation, I suppose.

    I downloaded a few more drivers and restarted, the system seems slightly faster now. I didn't update any CPU, GPU or network card drivers though, since they didn't have any there, the Intel VGA driver Lenovo had there was older than what my computer had according to my system, which is interesting... I could probably find the other drivers somewhere else, but I think I'll just wait and see if any more problems occur. Thank you so much for your help! :)
