SOLVED! Windows 10 Blue Screen of Death When Watching TV

I'm using MediaPortal for a few months watching TV, without any problems. After upgraded to Windows 10, MediaPortal continues to work without a problem for many weeks. But just recently, after watching TV for a while, Windows crashed with BSOD... with a message "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart..."

Interestingly, watching web-based TV (Adobe Flash) also crashed Windows...so it's NOT APP. Hard Disk check reported no error. It does not look like hardware failure. And, weird enough, when running Media Portal or web-based TV on my first monitor, Windows did not crash.

Ah....driver problem! My second monitor is with an updated NVIDIA driver.

Download a copy of the latest GeForce 210 driver from official website - http://www.geforce.com/hardware. Installed it... tested....

No BSOD, no crashing...when watching TV.... ;>

Why....it's not my first time heard of report of NVIDIA driver problem with Windows 10...
