4 tips on how to deal with this issue
1. Work with drivers
The "thread stuck in device driver" error most often occurs due to outdated or erroneous drivers. Therefore, eliminating the "blue screen of death" error is possible by updating the drivers. In addition, you need to make sure that your drivers are fully compatible with Windows 10.

Now, in Device Manager, find the driver you want and right-click it. Next, select "Update driver software" and click Search automatically for updated driver software. Next, wait for Windows 10 to load the appropriate driver and repeat these steps for all the drivers you want to update.
If you want to be sure that you are installing the latest driver, Device Manager is not enough. In this case, it is recommended that you download the drivers manually.
To do this, you just need to visit the hardware manufacturer's website. So download and install the latest drivers for the required device.
Alternatively, you can update the drivers automatically. To do this, you should use a specialized third-party tool. By choosing a good automatic driver update tool, you will get rid of a long search for drivers manually, and your personal time will belong only to you. This way, you can keep your system up to date.
