The blue screen of death ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_CM_PROTECTED_STORAGE with digital code 0x0000011C indicates an attempt to write a read-only configuration manager.

There is such a problem if the drivers are damaged, they are out of date, incompatible with the operating system, and also if they are replaced with malware.

It is necessary to identify the driver that led to the blue screen 0x0000011C. If the name of the driver is missing in the error message, it can be detected using a memory dump. I recommend using the BlueScreenView program to analyze the dump. After that, depending on the situation, it needs to be updated, rolled back or deleted.

4 Recommendations for the Elimination of BSoD:

1. 0x0000011C: ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_CM_PROTECTED_STORAGE 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 0x0000011C: ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_CM_PROTECTED_STORAGE 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 0x0000011C: ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_CM_PROTECTED_STORAGE 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 0x0000011C: ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_CM_PROTECTED_STORAGE is a malfunction of the RAM. To test it, you can use testing programs, such as memtest86+.
