Fix: Blue screen after Windows 10 rollback
Since Windows 10 is available as a free upgrade, users can rollback to the previous version in the first month after upgrade. Unfortunately many users reported blue screen after reverting to the previous version of Windows. This can be a big problem, therefore today we’re going to show you how to fix it.
How to fix blue screen after Windows 10 rollback?
Solution 1 – Remove your antivirus software
Blue screens are often caused by certain software, most commonly your antivirus, so if you’re having this problem after rolling back from Windows 10 we suggest that you remove all third-party antivirus programs from your PC.
If you cannot access Windows at all due to blue screen error, we advise that you remove the antivirus programs from Safe Mode. To access Safe Mode do the following:
- Restart your computer few times during the boot to start Automatic Repair.
- Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced options > System Startup and click the Restart button.
- When your computer restarts again you’ll see a list of options. Press 5 or F5 to choose Safe Mode with Networking.
If you’re using Windows 7 you can enter Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key during the boot sequence and choose Safe Mode with Networking option.
When Safe Mode starts you need to find and remove your antivirus software. Users reported that Avira antivirus and Kaspersky antivirus caused this problem to appear, but bear in mind that almost any third-party antivirus can cause this error. In addition to uninstalling the antivirus software, many users are suggest to use dedicated removal tools. These tools are designed to remove all files associated with your antivirus software, so be sure to download and use one of these tools. Most antivirus companies have these tools available for download, and we strongly suggest that you use them.

- Uncheck Enable Windows ReadyBoot and Enable Windows ReadyDrive.
In addition to disabling Intel Turbo Memory some users are also advising to remove Intel Turbo Memory module from the system as well.
Solution 3 – Change your hard drive mode in BIOS
Some users claim that this problem is caused by your hard drive mode, and in order to fix this problem you need to change it. To do that press Del or F2 while your computer boots to enter BIOS. Once you enter BIOS locate hard drive mode setting and switch between UEFI, Legacy, Raid On and AHCI modes until you find the one that works for you. For detailed instructions on how to enter BIOS and how to change your hard drive mode we strongly suggest that you check your motherboard manual.
Solution 4 – Uninstall the problematic drivers
According to users, this issue can sometimes occur due to your drivers, and in order to fix this issue you need to find and remove the problematic driver. Users reported that touchpad or display driver can cause this problem to occur, therefore you might want to remove them. To do that follow these steps:
- Press Windows Key + X to open Power User Menu and select Device Manager from the list.
- Find the driver that you want to uninstall, right click it and choose Uninstall from the menu.
- If available, check Delete the driver software for this device and click OK.
After you remove the driver restart your PC. When your PC restarts Windows will install the default driver instead of deleted driver. If the default driver works well you can continue using it, but if there are any problems you might have to update it.
