Common Windows Blue Screen Stop Errors

I have compiled below, from various sources, a few more Windows Stop Error or a Blue Screen and possible workarounds:

REGISTRY_ERROR

This stop error is rare and is caused due to failure to read the registry properly from the hard disk. Best to try and restore the registry from your backup.

DIVIDE_BY_ZERO_ERROR

This stop error is caused by an application trying to divide by zero. If you receive this error & don’t know which application caused it, you might want to try & examine memory dump.

KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

An incorrectly configured device driver usually causes this type of error. Difficult to isolate and troubleshoot.

INVALID_PROCESS_ATTACH_ATTEMPT

This Bugcode 0x5 indicates that a kernel process was making an attempt to attach to another process. To aid in diagnosis, the user should note all  applications that were executing at the time of the failure. There is no recovery or workaround.

HARDWARE_INTERRUPT_STORM

Such an error is usually caused by a poorly written driver or firmware. Difficult to troubleshoot, but Device Manager or System Information tool can help you.

INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

This stop error occurs when Windows has trouble reading from the hard disk. This error can be caused by a faulty device driver. You may also try running your anti virus.

PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

This Bugcode 0x4E error is usually caused by a faulty RAM. You may want to get your RAM checked or replaced. If that doesnt work, there is no other known recovery or workaround

MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

If you have overclocked your CPU, this could result. Also check your power supply.

MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS

This Bugcode 0x44 indicates a fault in driver logic. This has been seen to occur on a heavily loaded system. There is no recovery or workaround.

NMI_HARDWARE_FAILURE

Usually caused by bad SIMMS. Best to call your hardware vendor.
