Is bluescreening a common issue on Windows 10?

Hey, all. Despite being very much against upgrading to Windows 10, I bit the bullet and took to the future. I've had a number of issues that I've had to work around, including incompatibility and driver problems, and today it just bluescreened. No warning, no signs of problems, nothing. Then it just spontaneously bluescreened. It couldn't have been heating issues as nothing ever gets too hot in my case (other than my motherboard MOSFETS, but that couldn't be the issue). I've been talking with some friends on Discord, and some have mentioned having bluescreened after upgrading, too. I've never had these issues with Windows 7, so I think it might be the OS.

Update: Checked my drivers, and that was the issue. Problem solved. Thanks, everyone!

Did you do a clean install? Seems to solve most issues people run into.

I was really against upgrading to Win10 at first but honestly I have had no problems with the upgrade so far. I did a clean install though.

I have. Oddly, it only ever does this to me when I play Warframe. Other games, including Fallout 4, work perfectly. Might it be a driver issue, come to think of it. Oh, and the code was "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION" mentioning something about "win32k.sys". Not exactly the most informational error message I've ever read.

if its just one game, it may also be an issue with the install... try validating files if its in steam, otherwise, reinstall.
