Unbelievable!!! I thought Microsoft would have this problem solved with Windows 10. Now, I can see why Windows 10 was continues with bugs from previous OS's.

Quite a lot of blue screens are caused by hardware failures or drivers written by other companies than Microsoft.

What's the BSOD you're getting now and what is the cause? Until you show that it's a 100% Microsoft issue, already present in Windows 8.1, your rant is unjustified.

We are collecting the information and will reboot your computer when it is done.

There was no mentioning of hardware failures of drivers written by other companies.

It is the same BSOD as in Windows 8.1

A BSOD has a number like 0x0000007A on the BSOD screen. tells how to show that.

Indeed, it doesn't tell the cause, it just reports there is a fatal condition, the error code and in what module it occurs. If, for example, that module starts with nv, it might be related to your nvidia video card or its driver. Then you can blame nvidia for making hardware that fails or drivers that contain bugs.
Anyway, It's up to you to find out what's wrong with your machine.

So please tell all details next time it happens. That gives an indication on where (what part of the PC) to look for the solution.

":( Errors have occur...We are collecting the information and will reboot your computer when it is done. "

That is all it said in the message. Unfortunately, it is not possible to do a screenshot when the BSOD comes on.

The link I gave tells how to disable the auto PC restart option so you can write down all details from the BSOD screen: it links to which in turn links to the Microsoft Knowledge Base article KB2929742.

Unfortunately, Microsoft made it rather difficult compared with earlier versions of Windows. It could well be they made it easier again in Windows 10. I didn't check for that. Anyway, it's indispensible information if you want to resolve your issue in another way then by buying a new PC.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
