@thegibson @thatgeoguy That's completely untrue!

... usually there's a billion search results for the error code, for wildly different setups, and the only ones where people have posted about finding solutions are for causes you've already discounted as possibilities. That's certainly my experience at least!

@TheGibson windows: "error code 0xdeadbeef"

me: *googles error code 0xdeadbeef*

microsoft help page: "well could be a driver problem a software problem or hardware problem well maybe just buy a new computer"

@eichkat3r @thegibson

But then it turns out to be a driver problem 🤣🤣🤣🤣

@antijingoist @TheGibson

me: *clicks "search for drivers online"*

"searching for drivers online" dialog:

display("searching for drivers online");
for(int i=0; i < 1000000; i++) {}
display("no drivers found");

@eichkat3r @thegibson back in my day you had to actually look for them, but you couldn't check the manufacturer because they were bankrupt. 🤣

Then check the release notes to see which version to roll back to.
