UPDATE: Latest Windows 10 Update Causes Some Users to Appear Blue Screen of Death
As usual, Microsoft recently released its Patch Tuesday, a security update released every second Tuesday of the month. The December edition fixed no less than 22 significant security vulnerabilities discovered in Microsoft operating systems. Unfortunately, for some users, the update resulted in an annoying issue.
The concern is manifested by the appearance of the famous blue screen of death (BSOD) which forces the user to restart their machine. However, in this present case, this solution would not always be sufficient. Several computers affected by the blue screen BSOD problem simply do not want to restart. You will therefore have to go through Windows 10 safe mode to try to correct the problem.
Few affected users
The good news is that only a small number of users seem to be affected by this bug. The problem seems to affect only machines under version 2004 / 20H2 of Windows 10 on which an SSD check has been launched via the “checkdisk” command.
The Redmond firm has confirmed the existence of a bug following its last corrective patch and confirms that it only concerns a small number of users. Microsoft has indicated that a patch had already been developed and that it would be deployed very soon on all the machines concerned.
The American company still shares a solution if the problem persists despite the fix. You will have to go to the advanced options – option offered following the appearance of the famous blue screen -, then in the command prompt. You will then have to type “chkdsk / f”, wait for the process to complete and finally press exit. Windows 10 should then restart normally.
