    My first BSOD in 3 years


    Well I just had my first BSOD since April 2012.
    I haven't had one on Windows 7 since I stopped "experimenting with "optimizers and un necessary software---NOPE!
    I haven't had one since I started using Windows 8.1---NEVER!
    But just a few minutes ago I had one on Tech Preview. Being that it originally was a Win 7 laptop, I'm in the process of getting the Win 8 drivers from ASUS, and updating the HD 2000 (Generic) graphics driver, updating my software to the Win 8 versions, it's no wonder I got a Blue Screen...but it corrected itself and I've had no problems since, I think it was a USB hub that was the problem or I should've rebooted earlier.

    So the question is:
    Does this BSOD count(being an Alpha version of an OS) that I should update my signature?

    No. But you should realise that drivers are (almost always) 3rd party so your sig is fairly senseless anyway. You'd have to try quite hard to get a BSOD not caused by a driver.

    Oh it's easier than you think, and I'd win that bet...All I have to do is install IOBITs Advanced System Care and let it run in the background for a week or so. It would nuke my registry, constantly change all my system settings, and probably put more holes in my Firewall than Al Capone with his Tommy gun.

    When I upgraded my laptop to Windows 10, it BSOD as soon as I plug in the Ethernet cord, every time.
