    BSOD while installing a driver

    I was trying to install a driver to see if the performance would increase. It crashed my system. Also, a crash occurred yesterday and the day before yesterday.

    Since that driver is so old you should try and find the newest version online. 2009 is from Windows Vista era. If you cannot find any for Windows 10, drivers for Windows 8.1 should work (but not in all cases).

    It is not the only driver that caused crashes, other drivers are drivers provided by the laptop manufacturers but they can only be reinstalled as there are no updates for Windows 10.

    Since I don't have the option to go back to Windows 7, I have no other choice but to stick with Windows 10.

    It was a driver from the Acer website for my Laptop that supported Windows 8. Also, I am sorry about the System Specs. I have multiple devices running Windows 10 and that's why it isn't filled in correctly.

    I did that. Now what? Need help finding a driver if applicable. Also, what if I have a problem with my other computers and I need help. My system specs wont be accurate for the other computers.
