0x000000E0: ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR fix error
The blue ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR death screen with code 0x000000E0 indicates that one of the computer components is defective. However, such an error is detected not by Windows, but by the BIOS.
If you installed a new component, overclocked, or have been using your PC for a long time, you should reset the BIOS to factory settings, stop overclocking and conduct a complete diagnosis of the components of the system assembly.
Error or BSOD 0x000000E0: ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR is a common occurrence on both old and new Microsoft builds. Such a problem appears due to a hardware failure or malfunction of one of the connected devices, as well as incorrect BIOS settings. At some foreign forums, Windows 7 users noted that the 0x000000E0 error appeared on their PC due to overclocking of the processor, RAM, and video card. Therefore, to fix the blue screen of death ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR will have to conduct a complete diagnosis of the installed components.
An overview of the main ways to solve the error 0x000000E0: ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR:
Since the error 0x000000E0: ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR is related to hardware failure and incorrect BIOS settings, we will divide the options for solving the blue screen of death or BSOD into two groups:
The error appeared after manipulating the components of the system assembly or after connecting new equipment; An error appeared, no equipment was connected. If you before the ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR error with the stop code performed manipulations with devices or with installed components, then the actions will be as follows.
We reconnect the device. If this device is connected via a USB port, then we look to use USB 2.0 or USB 3.0. We look at the format in the instructions for the device. We check the correctness of the installed drivers. They must be compatible with the version and bit depth of Windows. We verify that the device is compatible with other components of the system assembly.
Check the settings in the BIOS:
If you did overclocking the processor, video card or RAM, then in the BIOS settings you need to return all the indicators back or just reset the firmware settings.
If you bought new equipment and connected it to a PC, then the problem may lie in the incompatibility of components with BIOS firmware. In this case, if the motherboard or laptop is not under warranty, you need to download the utility for updating the BIOS from the motherboard manufacturer’s website and update the firmware. However, if your motherboard or laptop is under warranty, then updating the BIOS should contact the service center or the store where you bought the device, since self-firmware on the motherboard leads to loss of warranty.
If you did not install or connect anything, then error 0x000000E0: ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR may appear due to a banal failure. You can reset the BIOS or remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes.
It is also necessary to conduct a complete diagnosis of the installed equipment, as it may be damaged or malfunction.
You need to check the hard drive with the Victoria HDD program (check the relevance of the program version, the software is free, and therefore it is better to download the latest version exe-file). We check the RAM by the MemTest86 program. This program must be written to a disk or USB flash drive (mount image) and in the BIOS to set the boot from the media. Next, it is worth performing at least 6 passes by the program. After testing the bars in the standard position, they should be interchanged. Next, we test the first bar in one, and then in the second slot. We repeat the same with a different bar. So you determine whether the bracket or slot for RAM fails. The processor needs to be checked for temperature. For this, the AIDA64 program is suitable. It is necessary to expand the branch "Computer", "Sensors". Next, we look at the temperature of the processor. It does not hurt to clean the computer from dust and check for swollen capacitors on the board or in the power supply. The elements may not have enough power.
If the problem persists, try using the installation disk and roll back the system to an earlier state. If the rollback does not help, then you need to reinstall Windows. The last option is to contact the service center. Perhaps the motherboard has cracks or the built-in network card, sound card, and other components crash, which only specialists can check with the help of special equipment.
4 Recommendations for the Elimination of BSoD:
1. 0x000000E0: ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR may appear due to errors in the code of the operating system itself. Microsoft is constantly working to correct such errors, releasing patches and service packs. Installed the latest update package (Service pack) and the constant updating of the system will save a lot of errors.
2. If 0x000000E0: ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR appeared after the newly installed device driver or program. It is necessary to roll back the driver to an earlier version. With programs, things are easier, removing them will eliminate the cause of the failure. The “Run Last Known Good Configuration” option may be useful.
3. If 0x000000E0: ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR began to appear after you have connected a new device to the system, then you need to check it for compatibility with your operating system. If the device is compatible, then you need to download the latest drivers from the official website of the manufacturer and install them. If the latest drivers are installed, you need to install an earlier version of the drivers. If the device is incompatible with the operating system, then it is necessary either to change this device or to change the operating system that supports this device.
4. Very often the cause of the appearance of 0x000000E0: ACPI_BIOS_FATAL_ERROR is a malfunction of the RAM. To test it, you can use testing programs, such as memtest86+.
