Windows 10 May 2020 Update Causing BSOD Errors on Some Machines

Microsoft has confirmed a BSOD problem with Windows 10 May 2020 Update that affects some drivers on incompatible PCs.


As we reported earlier today, has blocked the Windows 10 May 2020 Update for a large subset of users across numerous devices. It seems the new Windows 10 version has shipped with its fair share of issues. Another problem has been described today that is resulting in users getting Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) errors.

According to Microsoft, an incompatibility issue with display driver version 358.00 or older triggers BSOD errors in Windows 10 May 2020 Update. Furthermore, an audio driver issue may also cause BSODs. Additionally, plugging or unplugging the Thunderbolt dock may also result in the same problem.

All affected machines have been blocked from updating to Windows 10 May 2020 Update. However, users could still download the update manually although that is not advisable. Microsoft tells users to update drivers before installing version 2004.

Not updating affected drivers could result in the BSOD errors. Users who still want Windows 10 May 2020 Update can perform a clean install to ensure a problem-free experience.

Last week, we reported on a BSOD error that was shipped with the KB4556799 update patch.

Among the problems reported are FPS drops, audio problems, and dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) crashes. Others are pointing to network problems, user profile issues, and more. Microsoft has acknowledged the problems and says it is investigating. The company says fixes are coming.

“After installing this update on a Windows 10 device with a wireless wide area network (WWAN) LTE modem, reaching the internet might not be possible,” Microsoft said.
