Windows Error 0x0000007e is a system error message that appears when the computer’s operating system cannot access system files, optical drives, ports, hard drives, or any other hardware installed on the computer. During normal system operation, the Windows error handler detects device boot problems and displays the error before the end user connects to the system. However, there are instances where the error is thrown away that prevents the error handler from reporting the problem(s) immediately. In this case, error 0x0000007e is displayed after the computer is started.
The error check SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED is a very frequent error check. To interpret them, you must determine the exception generated.
Well, don’t worry, here are some ways to solve the dreaded 0x0000007e stop error.
Apply Microsoft Official Hotfix
A supported patch is available from Microsoft. However, this fix is only intended to correct the problem described in this article. Apply this patch only to systems where the problem described in this article occurs. This patch can get additional tests. Therefore, if you are not seriously affected by this problem, we recommend that you wait for the next software update that contains this patch.
Update the computer BIOS.
If your computer was recently purchased, the BIOS update process has been greatly simplified compared to previous years. After ensuring that no other patches from the previous step need to be downloaded and installed on your computer, download the BIOS update from the manufacturer’s website to an easy location on your computer, such as your computer desktop. Then close all running programs and double-click the upgrade file. Accept all default menu options to update the patch and restart your computer. If you are upgrading a laptop, make sure your computer is connected to a power source, as a battery failure during installation can cause serious problems on your computer.
On an older computer, you may need to boot the computer from a boot floppy to update the BIOS. If this is the case, you must save the BIOS upgrade file to your hard disk. Before booting from the floppy disk, the boot drive order in the BIOS setup window must be changed to first search for the portable media drive (before the computer hard disk). If you boot the computer from the hard disk, load the BIOS update after the computer restarts. After upgrading the BIOS, restart the computer and the 0x0000007e error is deleted if the BIOS caused the error.
Delete insecure or incompatible drivers
This blue screen of death error is probably caused by unsafe or incompatible drivers.
Microsoft has already developed a patch for users of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. You can download and try it. But this is not always useful, because the exact causes are different.
Instead, you should check that all drivers installed on your PC are safe. Uninstall drivers that you are unsure about security or stability. Then restart your computer.
Newly updated drivers may not be compatible with your operating system, if you have installed such drivers, you must also uninstall them.
Check if this problem is resolved after rebooting.
