STOP error 0x0000005A always appears on a STOP message, better known as the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In this case, the 0x5A error specifically calls that an important service could not be started.


This error is usually caused by a missing or damaged device driver or incompatibility problems with the newly installed hardware or driver.

Here is a list of possible solutions to this error:

Use automatic repair

Reset your Windows

January 2021 Update:

We now recommend using this tool for your error. Additionally, this tool fixes common computer errors, protects you against file loss, malware, hardware failures and optimizes your PC for maximum performance. You can fix your PC problems quickly and prevent others from happening with this software:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


Repeat the steps in solution 3, but instead of choosing Keep my files, choose Delete All. This will remove all your files and folders from the partition of your hard disk where Windows 10 is installed.

Make sure the system files are in working order.

There are two main ways to check system files: the SFC command and the DISM command. We will try both options to check and correct the system files.

Execute the SFC command
First, you must open the command prompt with administrator rights. To do this, press the Windows logo key -> type cmd -> right-click Command Prompt and click Run as Administrator.

After opening the command prompt, you must now execute the SFC command. Enter sfc /scannow and press Enter.

This order takes a few minutes to complete. After completing this command, restart your computer.

DISM or Deployment Image Servicing and Management is the tool specially designed to check system files and correct the blue screen of death error.

To solve the problem, install and update the device drivers.


If you saw a yellow triangle, the problem is probably related to device drivers. Please note that not all of these problems are intercepted by the device manager. Since most errors on the blue screen are caused by corrupted drivers, you should try reinstalling the drivers to fix the problem.

Please let me know if you have fixed the STOP 0x0000005A blue screen of death with a method I don’t have above. I would like to keep this page with the most accurate troubleshooting information up to date.
