    Windows 10 crashes after every new update installation


    I have migrated from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
    Since the movement to Windows 10 I am getting a system crash with BLUE screen every time a new Windows 10 update is installed on the system.
    I would like to know the reason behind this issue...
    Also is this being observed by other Windows 10 users too?

    Never happened to me once yet, on an upgrade from 7 SP1 or an upgrade from 8.1 Pro.

    Maybe do a reset to see if it fixes the issue.

    Will a reset take out all the data/settings?

    BSOD crashes again!

    Recently I have reset the Windows 10 installation on my laptop.
    Now there are not old software installation carried forward from the Windows 7 upgrade.

    With this clean installation too I faced 2 consecutive BSOD crashes today while playing youtube videos on latest version of Opera!

    Is there something to do with the flash player or something that is cause these crashes?

    One word: drivers.

    Update "HP Pavillion G6"* with Windows 10 specific drivers from HP. Do not let Windows find them for you, and do not let HP automatically find them for you. This way you can see if they even provide them for your computer (if not, that is a telltale sign that your computer isn't exactly Windows 10 supported).

    If that isn't the case, we can focus on repairing Windows itself. Something tells me it is, though.

    *From the HP website concerning your computer when I attempted to find the drivers based on your Computer Specs you're supposed to fill out:
    Results for "hp pavillion g6"

    More than 300 products contain the term "hp pavillion g6".

    Please search for your product again using the text box to the right, following the suggestions below.

    Include both the product name and number in your search.
    How to find my product name/number

    Search again

    In addition, we have BSOD Support located in a specific place that can more adequately detail just what is wrong, but you have to post your BSOD issue THERE: BSOD Crashes and Debugging - Windows 10 Forums

    The rules to follow before you post your issue can be found here: BSOD - Posting Instructions - Windows 10 Forums

    Quite possibly, they will be able to tell you what causes the crash specifically, and likely the cause is a driver or two, and perhaps some other things, who knows. Sometimes it can be a few things at once.

    So after you update your drivers, it is quite possible you will receive better help if you post in the right place. Best of luck.

    Well, probably Windows Update keeps installing new drivers for some device hence the BSOD. Look at this thread how to hide updates so they don't install automatically. I recommend hiding all driver updates and install any driver manually. For chipset you can go straight to Intel/AMD to get latest driver. For graphics, the same. Actually I prefer searching for latest drivers directly at device manufacturer first, and if I cannot find it, I resort to the notebook's support site. Frequently the support site has outdated drivers that may not work properly in Windows 10. And always remember backwards compatibility. If there is no Windows 10 driver available yet, don't panic! Try Windows 8 or 7, even Vista should work in worst case. Of course the newer the better.

    Just disable device installation settings.

    Not enough, I had done it too but my nVidia drivers were updating to latest version automatically. I need older drivers because CUDA (hardware acceleration in video editing) support has changed in Forceware 340.xx and later, so old applications cannot detect and use it. Let's hope that by hiding nVidia updates my drivers will finally stay the version I want... So hide driver updates as well to be extra sure!
