A hardware-related issue may also be the reason why this 0x1000007e error is shown, but you shouldn’t imagine the worst scenario yet.
Because of the multiple factors that cause this error, it’s likely that you may have to attempt more than one potential fix to suitably repair it.
With that said, we may only suggest you try the solutions below in the given order.
How can I fix error 0x1000007e on Windows?
1. Install pending updates
- Press Windows key + R keyboard hotkey to open up a Run dialog box.
- Type wuapp.exe inside the text box and press Enter to open up the Windows Update tab of the Settings app.
- Once you’re inside the Windows Update screen, click on Check for updates.
- After that, follow the next on-screen instructions to install every pending update.
- After each Windows update is installed, restart your computer and you should be good to go.
Windows 10 updates are supposed to be automatically downloaded when available and installed. Make sure you install every pending update that Windows has lined up for you.
2. Use a troubleshooting tool
Since the issue might be deeper than you thought and finding the cause might be difficult, a general troubleshooting BSoD tool can be very useful.
Restoro is powered by an online database that features the latest functional system files for Windows 10 PCs, allowing you to easily replace any elements that can cause a BSoD error.
This software can also help you by creating a restore point before starting the repairs, enabling you to easily restore the previous version of your system if something goes wrong.
This is how you can fix registry errors using Restoro:
- Download and install Restoro.
- Launch the application.
- Wait for the software to identify stability issues and possible corrupted files.
- Press Start Repair.
- Restart your PC for all the changes to take effect.
As soon as the fixing process is completed, your PC should work without problems, and you will not have to worry about BSoD errors or slow response times ever again.
Disclaimer: This program needs to be upgraded from the free version in order to perform some specific actions.
3. Use SFC /Scannow
- Click on Start.
- Then, you need to search for Command Prompt, right-click the top result, and select Run as administrator.
- Type the following command and then press Enter:
- System File Checker will now verify the integrity of all protected operating system files on your computer.
- It might take quite a while to finish. Once you start this process, you must not interrupt it until the operation is finished.
- Restart your computer if sfc /scannow repaired any files.
System file corruption problems could occur as a result of an issue installing a driver, a system update, or application, or even while making any changes to the installation manually.
Windows 10’s System File Checker (SFC) scannow command can’t fix hardware issues.
But it’s a great place to start if you’re still experiencing the 0x1000007e error and suspect corrupted system files as the culprit.
In the unlikely case that the scannow command stops before the process finishes, we’ve also got an easy fix for you.
