Lagos, Nigeria


Users reported that the wireless adapter driver was causing this issue, and after reinstalling the problematic driver, the BSoD error was fixed.

3. Remove problematic applications


Third-party applications can often cause Blue Screen of Death errors to appear, therefore it’s important that you find and remove the problematic software.

If you installed or recently updated any software, we strongly advise that you remove it and check if that fixes the error.

Almost any software can cause this error to appear, therefore it can sometimes be hard to find the problematic application.

Usually, these types of errors are caused by your antivirus software or firewall, so be sure to remove all third-party antivirus programs from your PC.

Bear in mind that Windows 10 comes with Windows Defender that works as antivirus software, so even if you remove all third-party antivirus programs, your PC won’t be completely defenseless.

Uninstalling your antivirus might not fix this problem, because antivirus programs tend to leave certain files and registry entries behind once you remove them, so we strongly suggest that you use dedicated removal software to remove your antivirus.

Many antivirus companies host dedicated removal tools on their website, so be sure to download one of these tools for your antivirus.

4. Downgrade your BIOS

Few users reported that the FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE BSoD error can be fixed by downgrading your BIOS.

According to users, certain versions of BIOS can cause this problem on Asus motherboards, therefore you might want to downgrade your BIOS.

Downgrading BIOS can sometimes be risky, therefore use extra caution and be sure to check your motherboard manual for detailed instructions.

5. Reset Windows 10

  1. Restart your computer a few times during the boot to start the Automatic Repair.
  2. Choose Troubleshoot > Reset this PC > Remove everything. You might be asked to insert Windows 10 installation media in order to proceed to the next step, so be ready to do that.
  3. Select Only the drive where Windows is installed > Just remove my files and click the Reset button.
  4. Follow the instructions in order to complete the Windows 10 reset.

Bear in mind that this process will delete all files from your C drive, so be sure to create a backup. You might also need a bootable USB flash drive to complete Windows 10 reset, and you can easily create one by using Media Creation Tool

6. Check your hardware

Sometimes these errors can be caused by your hardware, therefore we strongly suggest to remove any recently added hardware since it might not be compatible with your PC.

If you didn’t install any new hardware, we suggest that you check if your hardware is working properly.

Usually, these errors are caused by RAM, but be sure to check other components such as your motherboard, hard drive, network adapter, etc.

So these were our recommendations for you to troubleshoot the FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE BSoD. Tell us in the comments if any of the steps was helpful.
