It isn’t very clear whether it’s a problem with the recent Windows 10 update or the Kindle reader software update but after the update, some people have been facing the “blue screen of death” after plugging in their Kindle readers and are forced to reboot their PCs and laptops. Many have reported that their Windows 10 PCs crashed after the recent anniversary update when they plugged in their Kindle readers.
Is every Windows 10 PCs crashing when people plug in their Kindle reader? As it normally happens with most of the tech problems, not everybody is facing this problem. Some have reported that only those using USB 3.0 ports are having their Windows 10 PCs crashed when they plug in their Kindle reader. But some have also reported that even when they are using the regular USB port the Windows PCs are crashing when they plug in their Kindle reader.
According to this ZDNet update Microsoft is trying to solve the problem, which is mostly occurring with Kindle Voyager and Kindle Paperwhite readers after the Windows 10 Anniversary update.
Why would you plug your Kindle reader into your PC or laptop when you can straightaway download and even purchase books on it? Sometimes you need to transfer e-books from your PC to your Kindle reader. Sometimes people plug the Kindle reader into their PC or laptop simply to charge it because the charging cable is a USB connection. Whatever is the reason, after the Windows 10 Anniversary update, many people who plugged their Kindle reader into their PCs or laptops were met with the blue screen that pops up whenever the Windows operating system crashes.
