The 0x0000000A blue screen error is a highly annoying and damaging error which appears on XP computers mainly. This error is caused by the “hardware” of your system and is very common. Fortunately, there’s a relatively simple method to fix it.
The 0x0000000A error is caused by either a memory mismatch or a hardware incompatibility on the Windows XP system. This error is caused by Windows trying to access a memory location which simply does not exist, causing it to get confused and restart, showing the blue screen error that you’re seeing. The other cause of this error could be down to some of the hardware on your system being incompatible with your computer.
The first thing you should try and do to fix this error is to reinstall Windows XP. It’s often the case that XP has a series of files or settings that are damaged, making the system unable to read the files that it needs to. You should reinstall XP by booting from the CD. If you don’t know how to do this, there are numerous tutorials online.
If that does not work, you should then try removing all the additional hardware from your system. Hardware such as printers, scanners, game pads,etc (which are not needed to run your PC) should be removed to limit the number of components which are trying to access your internal memory storage. This is very important because it’s often the insignificant pieces of hardware which cause the biggest problems.
You should also try using a “registry cleaner” to clean out any of the damaged or corrupted settings that are inside the ‘registry’ of Windows. This is often a big cause of blue screen errors, and is one which can be fixed very easily by downloading a registry cleaner tool and using it to scan through your system. You can get these tools from the Internet and are very easy to use.
Doing all these things should fix the 0x0000000A error. The secret to fixing this error is to successfully identify the problem and then fix it quickly.
