Perform a repair installation
If none of the following instructions worked for you, there is probably damage to a major system file that the traditional method cannot fix. In this case, you may be able to fix the problem by resetting each Windows component to make sure that there are no corrupted operating system files that could be causing this type of BSOD.
When you do this, you have a choice of two options:
- Restore the installation (restore in place). This process should be preferred if you want to use compatible Windows installation media. You can reset any relevant Windows component without deleting personal files. Also, this procedure does not affect application sets or even some user settings.
- Reinstalling (reinstalling in place) is the easiest method because you do not need compatible installation media and you can deploy this process directly from the Windows GUI menu. Keep in mind, however, that if you do not back up your data beforehand, you risk losing all your personal files, games and applications on the operating system disk.
