The BSOD or the blue death screen INVALID_FLOATING_POINT_STATE with the digital code 0x000000E7 occurs due to a driver failure. Most often, BSOD appears when working with multimedia files, browsers and players.

Overview of the main ways to fix error 0x000000E7: INVALID FLOATING POINT STATE

On the OS Zone forum, a Windows 7 user shared a situation: he encountered a blue screen of death 0x000000E7: INVALID_FLOATING_POINT_STATE when starting a movie through the player. In this case, the PC rebooted. When he turned off the autostart of the program, an error 0x000000E7 appeared, which was not displayed in the mini memory dump. Reinstalling the program did not help. The bad file was detected by manually and single updating drivers. The culprit was the sound card driver.

Depending on the situation, the solution may be as follows:

You need to remove the old driver. To clear the registry of old entries and download ONLY from the official website of the motherboard, laptop or manufacturer of the sound card (if you have it removable, when your darling burned out or failed) fresh driver that matches the version and bit depth of Windows. After installing the new software and rebooting the system, the problem should be resolved. If the driver update did not help fix the INVALID_FLOATING_POINT_STATE blue screen of death, then you need to install the old driver for the sound card, but again, it’s worth cleaning the registry from the remnants of the software.

If updating the sound driver did not help fix the error, then the problem may lie in another driver. You can take turns updating and rolling back the driver, or downloading DriverPack Solution or any other program to automatically update drivers and try updating all drivers.

Some foreign forums indicate that BSDO 0x000000E7: INVALID_FLOATING_POINT_STATE appears due to the work of Avast antivirus. Therefore, if this protector is installed on your PC, you should remove it and install another antivirus.

If the error cannot be fixed by updating the drivers, then it is worth checking:

The integrity of the system files. To do this, you can open a command line with Administrator rights and enter sfc / scannow.

If everything is in order with the installed components of the system assembly, we suggest updating the operating system or rolling it back using the installation disk or using the system recovery point.
