Windows 10 upgrade driver problems: What to do about error code 0x800F0923

Jared Newman | July 11, 2016
Before upgrading to Windows 10, you might need to update, uninstall, or reinstall some drivers. Here’s how to proceed.

Last resort: Remove, upgrade, reinstall

If the above methods don’t work, and you still want to upgrade to Windows 10 before the July 29 cutoff, you can try deleting the problematic drivers before proceeding with installation. You can attempt to reinstall the drivers from within Windows 10.

This PCWorld article should guide you through uninstalling drivers in Windows. After upgrading, follow the steps in the previous section of this article to install the drivers again.

Keep in mind that while drivers are uninstalled, you won’t be able to use the devices they are tied to. Uninstalling graphics card drivers, for instance, may lower your screen resolution and limit video performance. If you can’t restore these functions after installing Windows 10, you may have to roll back to your previous Windows version—though you’ll only have one month to do so.
