About This Issue

The orange screen of death, like any other screen of death, appears suddenly and looks frightening. OSD can be caused by an incompatible driver, faulty RAM card from the hardware side, etc.

However, it is not necessary to have advanced IT knowledge to remedy this situation. You can solve this problem by simply rebooting your Windows 10. If this does not help, try to locate Duet Display on your computer and simply uninstall it (one of its components, Ddkmd.sys, causes system crashes in Windows).

Alternatively, try disabling all unnecessary external equipment (printers, webcams, additional monitors, mice, etc.) and see if that solves the problem.

If that doesn't help, you can fix the “Windows 10 orange screen of death” using the following methods provided especially for you.

1. Delete softOSD.exe

Soft OSD software can cause orange screen issues in Windows 10. This can be done manually by opening the Settings app. In the Applications section, select soft OSD from the list and click the Uninstall button.

Alternatively, you can use a third-party app of your choice to permanently uninstall apps.

Then you will be sure that no temporary file remains on your system and will not cause the orange screen of death.

2. Work with Drivers

Try updating your graphics card drivers manually or automatically.

So, open Device Manager, right-click on your graphics card, then select Update Driver. After that, select the option Automatically search for updated driver software and wait for this process to complete.

If Windows cannot find the updates you want, go to the video card manufacturer's website and follow their instructions.

To make your life easier, just download a special tool that can automatically update and install drivers for all devices found on your computer.

3. Enter Bitlocker

If you are using Bitlocker or another encryption tool, enter the Bitlocker password and press Enter.

To do this, run Command Prompt as administrator (Windows + S, type cmd and select Run as administrator) and in the following command:

BCDEDIT / Install obsolete {default} bootmenupolicy policy, press Enter.

As a result, the BitLocker pre-boot screen switches to symbol mode. This will fix the orange screen problem.
