        So I recently updated my computer to the latest drivers. I've had previous issues with updating my drivers, because after not using my computer for some time, I updated my drivers, I figured, "ooh, it's just an AMD update." But every time I'd multitask, I'd get the blue screen "Thread Stuck In Device Driver." I tried literally everything, from uninstalling my drivers (TWICE!) to checking to fix the update. Nothing worked. Then, about 2 weeks ago, I got the blue screen on startup, and my computer wouldn't boot. I had to format my ENTIRE SYSTEM. I didn't previously create a backup, so I just formatted my system, and lo and behold, it worked. I never got the error again. I could multitask freely! But, I did lose a lot of important files, and Lenovo isn't the best computer brand, sooo... never buying a Lenovo product again after this. But, King Bluescreen came back after me updating my drivers to the latest, and I can't even run Minecraft without crashing on startup. I've just uninstalled the latest drivers, but should I just format my system again if it doesn't work? I really don't have anything to lose after this besides a few files that really aren't the most important. However, I don't think formatting my system again would be the best option... need help!


Specs for my PC:

AMD A10-7800 Radeon R7, 12 Compute Cores 4C+8G  3.50GHz

(can't find AMD Settings in my PC so I'd probably have to reinstall it )
