It’s very common to run into an error while using your computer, and this is especially true when you’re browsing the web. A computer error is a sign that something is wrong with it, and it is completely normal. A bad driver, a malfunctioning device, or a new app that you recently installed may be to blame.
In most cases, people don’t bother to investigate these errors and simply wipe and reinstall the operating system.
No one would cut off their own hand and replace it with a prosthetic every time they scratch an itch. We’ve taken a closer look at some of the most common errors that we encounter, and how to fix them, in this guide.
When you first turn on your computer, this is most likely the first error you’ll see. A single beep (or two, depending on your motherboard’s manufacturer) will be heard if all of the computer’s vital components are operating properly. Technically, one beep indicates that your computer has passed the POST (Power-on self-test).
If, on the other hand, you hear more than one beep, your computer’s hardware may be malfunctioning. Any additional beeps you hear may indicate a problem with your computer’s motherboard or BIOS, depending on the manufacturer and the BIOS version. It could be anything from a dead CMOS battery to a broken graphics card. These signs and symptoms are easy to spot.
Blue Screen of death (BSoD)
Windows 8 BSOD
The Blue Screen of Death, also known as BSOD, can occur on any version of Windows, regardless of the version you’re using. This error, unlike most, does not have a way out in real time. Pressing ESC or Ctrl + Alt + Del won’t get you out of it. A recent hardware or software change on your computer is likely to be the cause of this error. After restarting your computer in Safe Mode, make sure you unplug any recently connected devices and remove any recently installed software.
Nirsoft BlueScreenView, a useful freeware programme, can also help you deal with these issues. The app investigates the system dump files and logs to determine the source of the issue. In addition to WhoCrashed and Reliability Monitor, there are other options.
Virtual Memory Too Low
This is yet another common blunder. Insufficient RAM or a memory leaky application are the most common causes of this problem. Your hard drive’s memory is used instead of physical memory by the computer in a technique known as “Virtual Memory,” which is also known as “virtual memory.” This error can only be fixed by purchasing additional RAM chips.
Make sure your RAM is enough to handle your workload by increasing the size of the pagefile. Go to System and Security in the Control Panel to get started. In the performance pane, select Advanced system settings and then click on settings under the Advanced tab. Typically, the recommended PageFile size is 1.5 to 2 times the amount of RAM you have.
The missing DLL files
A message about a missing DLL can be seen all over the place. That’s what this error message tells you: The programme was unable to find one of the necessary files (the.dll in this case). By reinstalling the software or searching online for a copy of the system file, you can fix this error. If the original file stops working, you may need to try a different one. Also, be cautious about where you download files from. Viruses are frequently to blame for such errors, so you may want to invest in a more powerful anti-virus programme.
0x0 0x0 errors
0x0 0x0 is a malfunction error that occurs when Windows is updated or installed for the first time.
Misconfiguration of your system’s operating system is the most common cause of this error, which we’ll cover in more detail later in the article.
Fatal Exception errors
Memory and other computer resources are shared among many programmes and hardware components in a computer. If a program’s request isn’t fulfilled, you’ll see a ‘unhandled exception’ error message and the programme may even crash. It could even cause the computer to shut down in the worst-case scenario. A list of Microsoft’s fatal errors can help you figure out what went wrong if you’ve run into that error before.
