How to fix blue screen errors Windows 10

A stop error (also called a “blue screen” error) can occur if a problem causes your PC to shut down or restart unexpectedly. You might see a blue screen with a message that your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart.

How to fix blue screen errors

The steps in this article are intended to help troubleshoot common stop error codes, such as 0x0000000A, 0x0000003B, 0x000000EF, 0x00000133, 0x000000D1, 0x1000007E, 0xC000021A, 0x0000007B, 0xC000000F, and more.

The article doesn’t contain a list of all error codes, but since many error codes have the same potential resolutions, your best bet is to follow the steps below to troubleshoot your error.

Blue screen error during upgrade to Windows 10


If you see a stop error while you are upgrading to Windows 10, setup will automatically go back to your previous version of Windows.
If you still see the error, try the following steps:
  • Update your drivers

Driver updates for Windows 10 and many devices are downloaded and installed through Windows Update. To update or reinstall drivers, see the following support articles: Update drivers in Windows 10 or Update drivers in Windows 8.1.

  • Scan device performance and health

Windows Defender periodically scans your device for potential problems. To see the results of the most recent scan, type “Windows Defender” on the search bar and select Windows Defender Security Center. Select Device performance & health. If there are problems with your device’s update history or drivers, they’re displayed here.

  • Run Windows Defender Offline

Windows Defender Offline scans your PC for malware

  • Remove software

Some software can cause issues during an upgrade. Remove recently installed or unnecessary software (for example, antivirus software from companies other than Microsoft) before upgrade.

Select the Start  button, then select Settings  > System  > Apps & features . Select Sort by name and change it to Sort by install date. Select a recently installed app you want to remove, and then select Uninstall.

  • Remove external hardware

Unplug unnecessary external hardware (printers, webcams, additional monitors, etc.) before upgrading.

  • Turn fast startup on or off

Sometimes, toggling the fast startup setting can help resolve stop errors. On the search bar, type “Control Panel” and select it. Then select Hardware and Sound > Power Options > System Settings. Under Shutdown settings, find Turn on fast startup (recommended). If this setting is turned off, select the check box. If it’s turned on, clear the check box.

  • Start in safe mode

Safe mode starts Windows in a basic state, with a minimal set of files and drivers. For more information, see the following support article: Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10.

Blue screen error after an update is installed


Some stop errors occur after a specific update or driver is installed on your PC. Fixing the error depends on getting to the desktop.

Stop error that lets you get to the desktop

If you can get to the desktop, try uninstalling the update that’s causing the error. You might need to uninstall more than one update if you don’t know which one is causing the error.
  1. In the search box on the taskbar, type View installed updates, and then select View installed updates.
  2. Expand the window to see the installation date, and then select the update that you want to uninstall.
  3. Select Uninstall.

If uninstalling an update fixes the stop error, temporarily block the update from automatically installing again.

You can also try the following:
  • Scan device performance and health

Windows Defender periodically scans your device for potential problems. To see the results of the most recent scan, type “Windows Defender” on the search bar and select Windows Defender Security Center. Select Device performance & health. If there are problems with your device’s update history or drivers, they’re displayed here.

  • Remove software

Remove recently installed or unnecessary software (for example, antivirus software from companies other than Microsoft) and see if that resolves the problem.

Select the Start button, then select Settings > System > Apps & features. Select Sort by name and change it to Sort by install date. Select a recently installed app you want to remove, and then select Uninstall.

  • Remove external hardware

Unplug unnecessary external hardware (printers, webcams, additional monitors, etc.) before upgrading.

  • Turn fast startup on or off

Sometimes, toggling the fast startup setting can help resolve stop errors. On the search bar, type “Control Panel” and select it. Then select Hardware and Sound > Power Options > System Settings. Under Shutdown settings, find Turn on fast startup (recommended). If this setting is turned off, select the check box. If it’s turned on, clear the check box.

Stop error doesn’t let you get to the desktop

If you can’t get to the desktop and your PC has restarted several times, it will begin automatic repair.
After automatic repair, on the Choose an option screen, you select Troubleshoot > Advanced options System Restore. This option reverts your PC to an earlier point, called a system restore point. Restore points are created when you install a new app, driver, update, or when you create a system restore point manually. Choose a restore point created before the error occurred.
Restoring your PC to an earlier point will remove updates and drivers installed after the restore point was made. It won’t affect your personal files.
If restoring your PC to an earlier point fixes the stop error, temporarily block the update from automatically installing again.
  • Start Windows in safe mode
You can also start Windows in safe mode to uninstall recent updates.

Blue screen error while using your PC


It’s not always obvious what may have caused a stop error. On older PCs, it may be that hardware is malfunctioning. If this is the case, try to fix the error using these steps.
  • Check for updates

Many stop errors can be fixed by updating Windows. In the search box on the taskbar, type Windows Update, then select Windows Update. On the Windows Update page, select Check for updates.

  • Update your drivers

Driver updates for Windows 10 and many devices are downloaded and installed through Windows Update. To update or reinstall drivers, see the following support articles: Update drivers in Windows 10 or Update drivers in Windows 8.1.

  • Scan device performance and health

If there are problems with your device’s update history or drivers, they’re displayed here.
