There's no simple explanation for the cause of stop errors (also known as blue screen errors or bug check errors). Many different factors can be involved. However, various studies indicate that stop errors usually aren't caused by Microsoft Windows components. Instead, these errors are related to malfunctioning hardware drivers or drivers that are installed by third-party software. These drivers include video cards, wireless network cards, security programs, and so on.
The root cause of stop errors is never a user-mode process. While a user-mode process (such as Notepad or Slack) may trigger a stop error, it is merely exposing the underlying bug which is always in a driver, hardware, or the OS.
We estimate that about 75 percent of all stop errors are caused by faulty drivers. The Driver Verifier tool provides several methods to help you troubleshoot. These include running drivers in an isolated memory pool (without sharing memory with other components), generating extreme memory pressure, and validating parameters. If the tool encounters errors in the execution of driver code, it proactively creates an exception. It can then further examine that part of the code.
Driver Verifier consumes lots of CPU and can slow down the computer significantly. You may also experience additional crashes. Verifier disables faulty drivers after a stop error occurs, and continues to do this until you can successfully restart the system and access the desktop. You can also expect to see several dump files created.
Apply the latest updates for the driver by applying the latest cumulative updates for the system through the Microsoft Update Catalog website. Update an outdated network driver. Virtualized VMware systems often run "Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Network Connection" (e1g6032e.sys). You can download this driver from the Intel Download Drivers & Software website. Contact the hardware vendor to update the network driver for a resolution. For VMware systems, use the VMware integrated network driver instead of Intel's e1g6032e.sys. For example, use VMware types VMXNET, VMXNET2, or VMXNET3.
If a driver is identified in the stop error message, contact the manufacturer for an update. If no updates are available, disable the driver, and monitor the system for stability. Run chkdsk /f /r to detect and repair disk errors. Restart the system before the disk scan begins on a system partition. Contact the manufacturer for any diagnostic tools that they may provide for the hard disk subsystem. Try to reinstall any application or service that was recently installed or updated. It's possible that the crash was triggered while the system was starting applications and reading the registry for preference settings. Reinstalling the application can fix corrupted registry keys. If the problem persists, and you have run a recent system state backup, try to restore the registry hives from the backup.
This stop error is commonly caused by corruption in the NTFS file system or bad blocks (sectors) on the hard disk. Corrupted drivers for hard disks (SATA or IDE) can also adversely affect the system's ability to read and write to disk. Run any hardware diagnostics that are provided by the manufacturer of the storage subsystem. Use the scan disk tool to verify that there are no file system errors. To do this step, right-click the drive that you want to scan, select Properties, select Tools, and then select the Check now button. Update the NTFS file system driver (Ntfs.sys). Apply the latest cumulative updates for the current operating system that's experiencing the problem.
If the error occurs during the startup sequence, and the system partition is formatted by using the NTFS file system, you might be able to use safe mode to disable the driver in Device Manager. To disable the driver, follow these steps:
This stop error code is caused by a faulty driver that doesn't complete its work within the allotted time frame in certain conditions. To help mitigate this error, collect the memory dump file from the system, and then use the Windows Debugger to find the faulty driver. If a driver is identified in the stop error message, disable the driver to isolate the problem. Check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Check the system log in Event Viewer for other error messages that might help identify the device or driver that's causing stop error 0x133. Verify that any new hardware that's installed is compatible with the installed version of Windows. For example, you can get information about required hardware at Windows 10 Specifications. If Windows Debugger is installed, and you have access to public symbols, you can load the c:\windows\memory.dmp file into the debugger. Then refer to Determining the source of Bug Check 0x133 (DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION) errors on Windows Server 2012 to find the problematic driver from the memory dump.
This stop error usually occurs in a clustered environment, and the indicated faulty driver is RHS.exe. Check the event logs for any storage failures to identify the failing process. Try to update the component or process that's indicated in the event logs. You should see the following event recorded:
To avoid driver problems affecting your hard drive, you can update your drivers regularly. Here is a great utility to help you, EaseUS DriverHandy. It can automatically scan and update your drivers to the latest version. Now, download it to try.
If none of the given troubleshooting solutions resolve the error, it's time to give up the conventional way of file transfer via a USB cable or a card connector. As we just mentioned in the earlier part, download EaseUS Todo Backup to backup important files if you saw this error because it's very likely to cause file corruption in the future. What's more, there is actually another use with this backup and recovery software. It is able to back up your files, at the same time, it allows you to restore the backup to anywhere you like, working charmingly like a file transfer software.
During the installation of a new driver, nvidia-driver-update uninstalls the previous version of the Hiveon OS NVIDIA drivers.If uninstallation stops with the following error (Received signal SIGBUS; aborting):
Fix the errors in your drivers by updating them before carrying out a Windows 10/11 installation. Ensure your PC is not disconnected from the source of power supply. Finally, run a Windows 10/11 troubleshooter. 2b1af7f3a8
