Hi,
My laptop is y50-70 Lenovo and I have it for at least two years.

I had many BSOD problems and slow startup so I opened a thread in other forum. Unfortunately, I chose to do recovery for windows 8.1

Let me tell you what I did.

I use OKR(OneKeyRecovery) software by Lenovo for recovery windows 8.1 and I choose to restore it to initial state.
Note: I also choose to disable windows updates, disable to install drivers.

For checking a known I turned it to sleep mode because it's known issue for BSOD but it's doesn't get it.
Searching in google "y50-70 bsod after sleep" will get you to a result see this for example: Driver Power State Failure Windows 8.1 - Microsoft Community and it's DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE error. Although, I don't remember I had "nvlddmkm.sys" problem but just usbccgp.sys and for my understanding it's Microsoft driver but it's not because of Microsoft driver it's because it's reporting usb driver. (correct me if I wrong)

Things I didn't do:
* update drivers
* remove Lenovo softwares ..

What I am not sure what to do:
* Stay with current state - Win 8.1
or
* Stay with current state - Win 8.1 and not to update drivers.
or
* upgrade to windows 10
or
* clean install to windows 10
or
* install win 7

If I should choose win 10 so I am not sure if the "privacy" should concern me like (collecting my data, wifi password and more) and that windows 10 will force windows drivers that are generics.
In addition, if I should choose windos 10 clean install I need a key, so I need to upgrade to windows 10 and then use a software to grab a key? Or windows 8.1 key is fine?

My focus is for study, using browsers, IDE(visual studio, etc..), office (word, powerpoint), windbg.
I am less about gaming because I don't have much time for it.

Last but not the least, should I choose in any stage (when moving to windows 10 or windows 7 or even stay with win 8.1) in the current below to use TRON?

 

Note: I removed superfish remove superfish certificate but I can't find visualdiscovery software.

Thanks for reading.

 

Hope to receive support.

The privacy thing is too complicated to discuss here.  There's plenty of other topics in the W10 forums that'll help you out with that.

The Tron stuff also is something that's due to personal preference.
I'd suggest posting over in the Windows 10 forums to discuss these details.
