Windows update is blocked on some Intel PCs by blue screen error – APK Games

Since the version 22H2 of Windows 11 was released, everything seemed to be going well — that is, if it weren’t for a few occasional problems. Because, a few days ago, users reported that the update would be locking their devices with the blue screen of death, rendering them unusable. THE Microsoft already identified the problem and blocked the new version of the system on some devices.

according to the company, the failure is caused by an incompatibility of Intel’s audio drivers, Smart Sound Technology (SST), and operating system. However, the problem only affects devices equipped with 11th generation Intel Core processors and running driver versions or

The company recognized the failure last Thursday (22) and suspended the updates 22H2 and 9:21 pm Windows 11 for devices with affected hardware configurations. This suspension, it is worth mentioning, does not depend on the version of OS users are on — that is, it also affects those who run Windows 10.

Both Microsoft and Intel have yet to speak publicly about what they are doing to fix this issue. For now, the only solution is, before updating the systeminstall a newer version of the audio drivers.

To do this, just check the manufacturer’s website for available updates or check Windows Update. By installing the latest version of the drivers, your device will be able to receive the latest Windows 11 update.

Still, Microsoft recommends not updating devices to version 22H2 until the flaw is properly resolved.

Nvidia GPUs were slower on Windows 11

Just yesterday, the technoblog reported that some devices with Nvidia GPUs were stuttering after getting Windows 11 version 22H2.

“I’ve been experiencing insane sluggishness in games. My gaming CPU usage has dropped significantly, in some from 80% to 5%,” said one user on a Reddit forum.

Other users took to the Microsoft forum to complain: “I received the 22H2 update for Windows 11 this morning and my games immediately started to slow down,” wrote one.

Fortunately, after many complaints, Nvidia identified the flaw. On its Twitter, the company announced the release of the beta build of Nvidia GeForce Experience 3.26, which promises to fix system performance issues.
