- The CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION message is one of those that accompanies the blue screen
- What are the possible solutions for the Blue Screen of Death BSOD issue?
More than once we have talked about the blue screen of death, also known as the BSOD screen. However, the blue screen does not define specific but general problems, and then you have to investigate them. With that being said, while the Blue Screen of Death is always a problem, today we’re going to show you how to solve the CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION message in case it accompanies the computer defect.
Basically, the blue screen with the CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION message appears as a result of critical kernel code or data corruption, usually related to the boot process of a computer. We can even associate the error or failure with the numbering 0x00000109 for identification.
Causes of CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION blue screen
Among the potential explanations for this obstacle, we can mention some common ones, such as drivers whose code has undergone changes, corrupted hardware elements, or software that performs actions that are not allowed. Regardless of what the specific cause of the problem is, the solutions are generally the same.
Solutions you should consider
Remove incompatible devices
If you have recently added any devices to your PC, they may be interfering with its operation. Make sure to remove any of them that might be causing the issue before further. You must do it from the Device Manager, right click, Uninstall device and restart.
Run System File Checker and Deployment Imaging and Service Management
An easy way to repair files that might be damaged is to use the SFC and DISM commands.. Both will be responsible for scan your computer for damaged files and repair them. Launching them is pretty simple from Command Prompt as administrator, and then these commands:
If that particular command doesn’t do anything, you can do it with this one:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
If there are damaged files you will see information about the error and, if so, also run this command:
You will need to confirm the action, and you will have finished with this trick.
Run Memory Diagnostics to find out if there is a hardware problem
Another way to solve the CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION message is to check what is happening with the hardware, since we cannot rule out that the blue screen is due to one of these hard components.
Windows has a built-in program called Memory Diagnostic that is there to scan your computer, checking that the hardware does everything it is supposed to doand then showing their conclusions.
- Press Win + R to open Run, type mdsched.exe and hit Enter
- Select Restart now and check for problems
The computer will shut down and restart, and Memory Diagnostics will show you all the conclusions obtained. Assuming something goes wrong, you will have to change the part or contact whoever sold you the computer.
Out-of-date drivers may account for this screenshot, although that is unlikely to be the cause. Microsoft has improved the integration a lot with the new updates, and almost all the problems are gone. But if you think that this may be the case, in this article we will show you how to update drivers on PC.
Run the blue screen troubleshooter
You can’t not run Microsoft Online Blue Screen Troubleshooterin this link. Indeed, the solver will analyze the reason for the blue screen, to try to come up with an answer.
Check system log in event viewer
The event viewer will allow you to verify if the system registry has any specific problem and thus detect it. That’s why, you have to check the BSOD log file in Event Viewer and attend to solutions.
Try a clean boot
The clean boot or clean boot on computers is key to get rid of third-party app errors. You will easily get rid of the errors if you follow the steps that we have taught you in this article about it.
Repair system files using installation media
Finally, if none of the above has worked, your last resort is to repair your system files in another way. You will have to resort to the installation media that we use when the system image is damaged.
Have you been able to fix the CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION blue screen message that way?
