To solve this Blue Screen error, you can reinstall the operating system and restore registry files from a backup. Registry files may have been damaged due to hard disk corruption or other hardware problems.

This error message may also occur if the pilot damaged the register data when it was loaded into memory, or if the memory in which the register is loaded has a parity error. In the latter case, disable the external cache and check the memory chips.
