    Cause of failure varies - need help to rescue - thx in advance-

    - free upgrade from Windows 8
    - no USB key as boot insurance
    - completely unstable. Won't stay up for more than 10 minutes before freeze or crash
    - multiple blue screen messages including the following:

    - driver IRQL not less or equal
    - kernel error
    - KMode exception not handled
    - system service exception
    - bad pool caller. (Honest I didn't call windows a bad pool

    above are are all blue screen but I also had windows trying to correct itself. Messages included

    - need correct BIOS startup media
    - windows\system32\config\system
    - error code 0Xc000098 (may not have been 98 as pic died before I could record it)

    i also got got close when windows asked me if I wanted to Save Files and rebuild Windows. I said sure and it started percent countdown. But then instability killed this and it never finished

    i can get to my desktop but usually only for a minute before crash. Read on a forum about maybe disabling IRST Intel rapid start technology but I could not find this in my control panel. Maybe I have to intercept the bios during startup? Sometimes I am given access to the bios screen and I can navigate with my arrows safely

    HELP HELP it is horrible to be so unstable after I trusted Microsoft with this upgrade. I much prefer 10 to 8 but need it stable. Can you help me please?

    Additional info

    Sorry forgot to mention. I have done some tests to help diagnose
    - windows memory test 2 passes. (I know you prefer 8 passes of me test but I'm too unstable for long tests)
    - device manager shows no yellow question mark devices. So perhaps not a driver conflict error
    - also ran windows disk check and it came out fine
    - fully updated AVG free with unlikely due to virus or malware
    hope this helps
