Windows 11 update causing Blue Screen of Death – how to fix it

Windows 11 update 22H2 was released on September 20 and it’s already causing serious problems for some Windows 11 users. And when we say serious, we mean Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) serious. Thankfully, there’s a fix that should hopefully prevent you from ever experiencing this annoyance first-hand.

As sister site TechRadar (opens in new tab)reports (via Laptop Mag (opens in new tab)), systems with 11th gen Intel Core “Rocket Lake” processors are the ones being affected. Additionally, some users with Nvidia GPUs who also have a Rocket Lake CPU are reportedly experiencing dropped frame rates thanks to 22H2. This echoes how the Windows 11 TPM requirement caused headaches for users with AMD CPUs. Apparently, folks in the Windows Insider Program told Microsoft about the dropped frames, but the Redmond-based tech giant failed to address the issue.

However, dropped frames in the best PC games isn’t as big of an issue as a system crash. So what’s causing the BSoD for some people? It turns out it’s an incompatibility issue Windows 11 22H2 has with certain Intel Smart Sound Technology (SST) drivers on Rocket Lake CPUs. To be more specific, it’s driver IntcAudioBus.sys with a file version of or, according to a report from Microsoft (opens in new tab).
