Describe your issue:

  • Provide a detailed description of the issue you are experiencing and the steps required to reproduce the issue.

So this evening I was curious as to how I could control my GPU fan speed as I already know how to control my case fans using SpeedFan. I installed AMD's Overdrive into my main 1TB mechanical harddrive and as soon it was installed I get the blue screen of death saying that system thread exception cannot be handled and aoddriver2.sys. My pc keeps restarting on an endless loop unless if I boot it into safe mode (which I did to try uninstall the graphics card driver but it did not work). I am now in CMD from the troubleshoot option in advanced boot options scanning for corrupt files.

  • Details about applications/games affected (including version number)

Logging in is an issue as I have to be extremely quick to log in before getting the BSOD. Even then, after logging in i'll get it anyway almost immediately.

  • Graphical settings used in the application/game (resolution and 3D settings)


  • If possible, include a screenshot or video link of the issue
