    I don't think using a kernel driver is surprising for a piece of monitoring software that's grabbing every sensor it can find.

    check the BIOS and see if you can force the slot to x8 mode?

    HWiNFO64 is set to run anytime I run my PC already, so not much of a concern for how I use it. If it isn't set to run on startup then I see how that could be concerning, assuming the way the driver works doesn't require it to start on boot or something. But unless you have a malicious piece of software masquerading as that driver, I don't see how it'd be a problem.

    Then it should be good. If you're super paranoid then uninstall HWiNFO I guess, otherwise it's a non-issue.

    Do you have any other software that uses the HWiNFO driver, apparently some antivirus software use it to get the data they need as well (according to one of the HWiNFO staff): https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/threads/hwinfo32-64-kernel-driver-just-appears.2848/post-13397.

    Neither of them grab all the sensors HWiNFO64 does in my experience, nor do they read them as reliably. That's the reason I use HWiNFO64 to begin with.

    Zando Bob got a reaction from Eschew in Is gaming on Linux as viable as Windows?   
    Also of note, not just the games. A lot of multiplayer titles include an anti-cheat and don't run natively on linux. All the ways I know of to get non-native stuff running on Linux will fuck with memory in a way that a lot of anti-cheats (assuming you could even get the anti-cheat to run properly to begin with) will flag as many cheat engines are based around messing with stuff in memory while the game is loaded.

    No. There are a lot of games that work, but far more games that don't. This API compatibility layer is always going to lag behind Microsoft's implementation.
     
    No official support from game developers, so if something doesn't work, you have to hope someone figures out what the issue is and fixes it, if possible.
     
    ~edit: With that being said: I've been using Linux for more than 10 years on the desktop. Thanks to Steam, gaming these past few years has been easier than ever. But it isn't perfect, so don't go in expecting everything to just work. I still keep Windows as a dual boot option for gaming.

    Just use W10 until it stops working if you don't wanna swap over. Windows 7 is not longer officially supported and some people still use that. No sense in blowing it out of proportion. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    There can't be anything too vital on this machine you need to save if you've gone without it for "years." 
     
    Maybe I don't understand the actual situation here. It sounds like you just forgot the Windows password to an old PC. What does the BSOD have to do with it?

    The HP. Purely because of storage, good luck trying to get much done on video editing with a 256GB drive, unless you're only going to work off external SSDs.
