    It is related to the video driver, nvlddmkm.sys and in many cases seems to involve the DPC watchdog. The occur just by clicking on the Start Button, or the Notifications icon and having a window open at the time may be involved. I also get many messages about how the video driver has stopped responding and recovered. If it doesn't recover, probably a Bluescreen results.

    On my other system I get dxgkrnl errors. On that system also, the Bluetooth seems to be a large problem. If I install drivers from ASUS, I end up with a system which will only boot to the lock screen. I have not found a way to get past it and the CTRL-ALT-Delete or Winkey+Power button do not help. What is strange, I notice my USB mouse is not powered in that condition, so clicking the lock screen probably has no effect. For all I know, the keyboard may not be powered either.

    The bottom line for me is this build is not really usable. Hopefully the one on Wednesday will be better.

    Agreed. I think there is quite a few folk hoping for a more stable release on Wednesday. A weird issue I was getting with Windows 10 was that the router was forever losing signal something to do with DNS. On almost a daily basis I would have to reboot the router to get it working again.

    Since going back to 8.1.1 not had an issue...

    I finally went back to 8.1. Spent most of the day with 10066 and couldn't get nothing to work. Start button, icons nothing was working. It would not even let me shut down or restart. Did another clean install only to have it act up again. I think I will wait for the final version before trying 10 again.

    Hopefully Sonny we might see a new build on Wednesday or thereabouts anyway. Depending on functionality I might give it a try. Trouble is I just upgraded hardware and I don't fancy installing an os where half of it might stop working.

    Same here kemical. I said I gave up on it but not really. Just so frustrated that I wasted a whole day trying to get it to work. For some reason some guy from Microsoft just called me and was asking me about how 10 was working. I told him I went back to 8.1 for now and why. He said that when new updates came out he would let me know. Going back to 8.1 made me realize how much faster 10 is.

    Look at Kemical's post and use the OSBetaArchive link in the quote or just go to his link and then go to the other link.

    I guess the third time is a charm. Got 10074 downloaded and installed. Will wait a couple of days before commenting on it.

    Damn! Left it downloading as I was too tired to wait up and the install ESD is borked. It might be that the GB or UK version has problems so am now downloading US version... I'm already starting to regret this.....

    I've tried 3 times now and every ESD file is borked. Could be my router which is on it's way out (new one arriving soon).. I'll give it one last go..

    Hoping this one works for you kemical. I did the iso file even though had to use 7zip to extract them.
