Steps to Resolve the 0x0000002E on Windows

The 0 × 0000002E error is a blue screen error which appears on Windows computers. This error occurs when there is a problem with the hardware or RAM (memory) of your PC, and is seen to be one of the "fatal" errors that Windows can fall foul of. Fixing this error involves ensuring the hardware of your computer is working correctly, updating Windows and fixing any further problems your system might have.

The error will typically show in this format:

STOP: 0 × 0000002E (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)


The first step to repairing this error is to remove any new hardware that you placed inside your system. Even such components as USB drives, external memory & other attachments can cause the 0 × 0000002E error to show – as they will cause a conflict / incompatibility within your system. It's often the case that PCs will be unable to support new pieces of hardware, as the existing hardware you have is either incompatible or unable to work with your current setup. The bottom line is that if you've placed any new hardware on your PC, you need to remove it immediately, which should stop the error.

If you do not have any new hardware on your system, the next step is to check if your current hardware setup is working correctly. Unfortunately, there is no set method for this – and in order to get your PC working correctly again, it's recommended that you ensure all the cables are secured in the rear of your system, and that no abnormal noises are coming from your PC. Hardware issues generally only show after a few days / months – making it important that you're able to repair the various problems as you find them, to stop the 0 × 0000002E error.

Following these two steps, it's also recommended that you update Windows. Microsoft has released a certain patch which actually allows your PC to better work with the various different pieces of hardware that your computer has, meaning that if you do not update your computer that often, you should try it today. To do this, click Start> Windows Update.

Finally, you need to clean out the "registry" of your PC to resolve any problems that might be inside this part of your system. The registry is a central database which stores vital settings & information for your computer – and where your PC stores the likes of your desktop wallpaper, latest emails and even your stored login details. Unfortunately, this part of your PC is also one of the biggest causes of problems for the typical Windows computer, as it's continuously being saved incorrectly. Many computers get errors caused by the "registry", making it vital that you clean it out & keep it running smoothly. To do this, you can use a "registry cleaner" program to repair the various registry errors that your system might have.
