Learn how to troubleshoot the 0x1E or KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED Stop Error (BSOD) in Windows 7.
What caused the error?
A Stop 0x1E message indicates the Windows kernel detected and illegal or unknown processor instruction. This Stop message is very similar to the 0xA Stop message.
How do I fix it?
- If you recently installed or upgraded a driver try rolling back or uninstalling the new driver.
- If the Stop message mentions the file Win32k.sys, the error might be caused by a remote control program. Try starting the computer in safe mode and then uninstall the remote control software.
- Try updating the computer’s BIOS. See the computer manufacturer’s manual for help with that.
- This Stop message can also be caused by insufficient disk space or memory. You might need a larger hard drive or more RAM.
- The problem might be caused by a memory leak. For more information on troubleshooting memory leaks see the Microsoft KB articles 177415 and 298102.
