MSI Motherboards Face Blue Screen of Death After Windows 11 Update

A recent Windows 11 update has been causing blue screen of death (BSOD) errors on computers with MSI motherboards. The update, KB5010386, was released on March 8, 2023.

The BSOD errors are caused by a problem with the way Windows 11 interacts with MSI’s Dragon Center software. Dragon Center is a popular software suite that allows users to control various aspects of their MSI motherboard, such as fan speed and RGB lighting.

When Windows 11 is updated to KB5010386, it can cause Dragon Center to crash. This can lead to BSOD errors, such as the “Critical Process Died” error.

MSI has released a fix for the problem. The fix is available as a beta version of Dragon Center. To install the fix, users need to download the beta version of Dragon Center from MSI’s website.

In addition to installing the beta version of Dragon Center, users can also try the following steps to prevent BSOD errors:

Disable Dragon Center. This can be done by going to the Windows “Services” app and disabling the “Dragon Center Service.”

Rollback the Windows 11 update. This can be done by going to the Windows “Settings” app and selecting “Update & Security.” Under “Windows Update,” select “View update history.” Then, select “Uninstall updates” and select the KB5010386 update.

Wait for Microsoft to release a fix for the problem. Microsoft is aware of the problem and is working on a fix. The fix is expected to be released in a future Windows 11 update.

If you are experiencing BSOD errors after installing KB5010386, I recommend trying the steps above. If you are still experiencing problems, you can contact MSI support for further assistance.

Here are some additional tips for preventing BSOD errors:

Keep your drivers up to date. Outdated drivers can sometimes cause BSOD errors. You can check for driver updates in the Windows “Device Manager.”

Avoid installing beta software. Beta software is not always stable and can sometimes cause BSOD errors.
Be careful about what you download from the internet. Malicious software can sometimes cause BSOD errors. You should only download software from trusted sources.

Back up your data regularly. If you experience a BSOD error, it can sometimes damage your data. By backing up your data regularly, you can minimize the impact of a BSOD error.
By following these tips, you can help to prevent BSOD errors on your computer.
