Since the error is most likely caused by a malfunctioning driver, you can use Windows Logs to find out the source of the problem. To do so, simply follow the steps below:

1. Press Windows Key + R and in the Run dialog box, type eventvwr.

2. Navigate to the Windows Logs menu then expand it, then select System.

Usually, the drivers that often cause problems are the display drivers or network drivers as these are notoriously frequent causes of BSODs.

3. Rollback Or Update Drivers

Depending on which driver is causing the system thread exception not handled error, you may need to update or reinstall the relevant driver.

If the drivers have not been updated for a long time, updating the drivers will most likely fix the problem. If your drivers have recently been updated, maybe rolling back the drivers or reinstalling the updates is something you should try.
