Opera crashing Windows to blue screen

  • My computer, a high end MSI laptop running Windows 10 x64, has been crashing to blue screen a couple of times each week at least, and every single time it occurs when I am entering text into Opera. Whether in the address bar or a comment area makes no difference. As I am typing, the computer will suddenly drop to a blue screen that says "Oops, your computer encountered a problem and needs to restart..." There is no indication of the nature of the problem, nor is there any memory dump, even if memory dumps were readable outside of Redmond. It never happens outside of Opera. Any ideas? Thanks for your time.

  • Try switching the hardware acceleration setting.
