Latest Windows 10 Patch Fixes Crashing Issue on PCs with Thunderbolt Ports

After Microsoft rolled out its Windows 10 version 20H2 and Windows 10 version 2004 updates, some users reported having issues with their PCs crashing—specifically when plugging in an external Thunderbolt NVMe SSD. An incompatibility issue between those types of SSDs and the latest Windows versions was the culprit, causing some users to experience the dreaded Blue Screen of Death. But now there’s a patch to fix that.

TechRadar (via Windows Latest) reported that Microsoft recently released optional update KB4586853 for OS Builds 19041.662 and 19042.662, which is supposed to fix the problem. If you have been seeing a DRIVER_VERIFIER_DMA_VIOLATION error message lately, now you know the cause. While this bug only seems to affect devices with older/incompatible drivers and Thunderbolt ports, it’s nevertheless annoying.

KB4586853 is an optional update, which means it won’t be applied automatically when Windows 10 does its usual round of critical updates, so you’ll have to install it manually. If you’re one of the many people who have not gotten the 20H2 or 2004 update yet, you will need to update to the current version of Windows first and then apply the KB4586853 patch.
