    Windows 10

    Fall Creators Upgrade, ATI PowerPlay, BSOD

    fresh install to fall creators update, installed legacy drivers as usual (v10.2).

    this time, if i try to change powerplay settings windows gives me a BSOD.

    does anyone know if it is possible to set/change something in the .inf file to reduce power consumption?!

    unfortunally the system crashes anyway in 1-2 minutes max even without changing powerplay settings. so, this is a bug or driver compatibility issue in fall creators update... going to report, hoping they didn't decide to kill old pcs/notebook.

    Try clean boot or safe mode:

    This is clean boot using administrative command prompt:

    1) msconfig (in the pop up system configuration > move the dot from normal startup to selective startup > uncheck load startup items > click service tab > in left lower corner check hide all Microsoft services > in the lower right side click disable all > click apply or ok > do not reboot)

    2) taskmgr (in the pop up task manager > click on the start up tab > click on status so that the column sorts with enable rising to the top > right click on each row with enable and change to disable)

    3) shutdown /r (you will reboot the computer so that it is in clean boot)

    These are methods to use clean boot without administrative command prompt:

    To open safe mode it can be done through msconfig or from a computer power off and on:
    left click the windows icon > left click the power icon > left click restart after holding down the shift > opens windows advanced troubleshooting menu > click startup options (not startup repair) > select restart and then safe mode (safe mode, safe mode with networking or safe mode with command prompt)

    When in clean boot run the DM log collector:

    If you are in safe mode you can try to run the DM log collector. I don't remember whether it will or won't work when in safe mode but you should have a more stable computer environment.6) shutdown /r (you will reboot the computer so that it is in clean boot)
