3. Run the Hardware Troubleshooter 

  1. Open the Settings app and go to the Update & Security section.
  2. Select Troubleshoot from the menu on the left.
  3. Select BSOD from the right pane and click Run the troubleshooter.error invalid floating point operation in Windows 10
  4. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the troubleshooter.

Another thing we can try is running Windows 10’s built-in troubleshooting tool. This is designed to deal with various system issues, including BSODs.

So, it might be helpful in this case, as well.

4. Run the SFC scan

  1. Right-click on the Start Menu button, and open Command Prompt (Admin).
  2. Enter the following line and press Enter: sfc/scannow
  3. Wait until the process is done (it may take a while).
  4. If the solution is found, it will automatically be applied.
  5. Now, close the Command Prompt and restart your computer.

The next troubleshooter we’re going to try is the SFC scan. This is a command-line tool that goes through your system searching for potential issues.

Of course, if resolving these issues is possible, the SFC scan will do it automatically.

5. Run DISM

  1. Right-click Start and open Command Prompt (Admin).
  2. Paste the following command and press Enter:
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
  3. Wait until the scan is finished.
  4. Restart your computer and try updating again.

And the third troubleshooter we’re going to try is DISM. DISM stands for Deployment Image Servicing and Management.

As its name says, it reloads the system image, which can lead to solving potential BSOD issues.  The first part was the standard procedure.

As an alternative, we will also show you the procedure that utilizes the installation media below.

  1. Insert your Windows installation media.
  2. Right-click the Start menu and, from the menu, choose the Command Prompt (Admin).
  3. In the command line, type the following commands and press Enter after each:
    • dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    • dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
  4. Now, type the following command and press Enter:
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:SourcesInstall.wim:1 /LimitAccess
  5. Make sure to change an X value with the letter of the mounted drive with Windows 10 installation.
  6. After the procedure is finished, restart your computer.

6. Reinstall your audio drivers

  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Locate the driver that you want to remove, right-click it, and choose Uninstall from the menu.
  3. If available, check Remove driver software for this device and click OK.

After uninstalling the driver, Windows 10 will install the default driver instead. If the default driver works well and your PC is stable, you can continue using it, or you can update the driver with the newer version.

Drivers can often cause these types of errors, and sometimes updating the drivers doesn’t help, so you’ll have to find and reinstall the problematic driver.

Few users reported that their audio drivers were causing the INVALID FLOATING POINT STATE error, but the problem was fixed after reinstalling those drivers.

7. Remove problematic applications

Third-party applications can often cause this error to appear, and in order to fix this problem you need to find and remove the problematic applications.

Your antivirus or firewall can cause this problem, therefore we recommend that you temporarily remove your antivirus program. Uninstalling the antivirus might not fix the problem.

So, it’s recommended you download and use a dedicated removal tool to remove all files associated with your antivirus. Many antivirus companies offer these tools for download, so be sure to use them.

8. Reset Windows 10

  1. Restart your PC few times during the boot sequence to start Automatic Repair.
  2. Select Troubleshoot > Reset this PC > Remove everything. Be sure to have Windows 10 installation media ready, because you might need it for this step.
  3. Select Only the drive where Windows is installed > Just remove my files and click the Reset button.
  4. Follow the instructions to complete the reset.

After Windows 10 reset is completed, you’ll have a fresh installation of Windows 10 without any third-party applications.

If the INVALID_FLOATING_POINT_STATE error is caused by software, you can fix it easily by performing a Windows 10 reset.

Resetting Windows 10 is fairly simple, and in order to complete it you might need a bootable USB flash drive.

We also have to mention that Windows 10 reset will remove all files from your C partition, so be sure to back up your important files.

If the error appears again, it means that it is caused by your hardware.

9. Check your hardware

Blue Screen of Death errors are often caused by hardware, and if you installed any new hardware recently we suggest that you remove it or replace it.

If new hardware is not the problem, we advise you to check your RAM and all other major hardware components.

INVALID FLOATING POINT STATE BSoD error can be a big problem, but we hope that you managed to fix this error by using our solutions.
