The blue screen of death 0x00000192 indicates that the lock monitored by AutoBoost was acquired during the execution of DISPATCH_LEVEL or higher.

On computer forums, Windows 10 users complain that when using the touch keyboard or mouse, and when connecting the headphones via Bluetooth, the KERNEL AUTO BOOST LOCK ACQUISITION WITH RAISED IRQL death screen appears, which continues to crash after rebooting the system and when using input devices again and data output. However, you can fix this error 0x00000192. It is necessary to conduct a complete diagnosis of the PC and Windows as a whole, following a few simple steps.


Most often, this error appears on the PC to which the external hard drive is connected. Therefore, to solve the BSOD, it is worth disconnecting the external device, and then removing the drivers in the Device Manager. Only after rebooting the PC, Windows 10 will begin to function normally. However, if an external hard drive is not connected to your PC, the solution to the error will be different.

First you need to run a system scan for viruses, as well as the integrity of system files. To scan Windows 10, we recommend using an antivirus with updated virus databases or the Dr.Web Curelt healing utility. To check the system for file integrity, you need to run the command line with Administrator rights and enter the sfc / scannow command.

If the antivirus and the sfc / scannow utility did not detect malicious objects and system damage, then the reason for the BSOD may lie in the Bluetooth driver. Therefore, you need to click "Win + R" and enter "devmgmt.msc".

Device Manager will open. We find the branch “Bluetooth Radio Modules”. Click on the element with the right mouse button and select "Properties".

A small window will open. Go to the “Driver” tab and select “Roll Back” (if before the BSOD you updated the OS or installed some software for phones) or “Update”. To update, we recommend choosing the manual method, after downloading the Bluetooth driver from the official website of the motherboard manufacturer.

After rolling back or updating the Bluetooth driver, you must definitely restart Windows 10 for the changes to take effect.

If the rollback did not help to solve the problem, then Bluetooth must be disabled in the BIOSe. To do this, go to the BIOS settings (the key combination for each motherboard is different, often F2, Del). In the menu, select "Security", "I / O Port Access", and then in the list we find "Bluetooth" and set it to "Disable".

Save the settings by pressing F10. We reboot the PC and check the system for operability.

Since the error 0x00000192 also appears due to the malfunction of the wireless adapter. In this case, do the following.

Open the "Device Manager". We expand the network adapter branch and find a working one. Right-click on it and select "Delete."

After removing the device from the list, you need to reboot the system. The system should find the adapter, install compatible drivers for it and earn correctly. If the error appears, then the Wi-Fi adapter can be disabled, like Bluetooth, in the BIOS.

If you have NDAS (Network Direct Attached Storage) that is connected to your computer, you can disable it and see if BSOD happens when you receive a Kernel Auto Boost lock with an increased IRQL delay.

Some users reported that in their case, crashes completely stopped after they turned off the NDAS system. Apparently, some NDAS manufacturers have not yet developed the appropriate drivers for Windows 10.

The KERNEL_AUTO_BOOST_LOCK_ACQUISITION_WITH_RAISED_IRQL blue screen of death may also appear due to damage to the Windows boot loader. To restore it, you will need to perform the following steps.

We connect the installation disk or USB flash drive to the PC. As soon as you run the setup program, select "System Restore" at the bottom.

A blue screen with a Menu will appear. Select "Diagnostics", "Advanced Options", and then "Command Prompt."

Next, enter “Bootrec / RebuildBcd” in the console. We wait until the operation is completed completely. Reboot the system. We boot into Windows and test the PC for some time. You can also perform system recovery from the same tool. This will be even more effective than using a recovery point.

If the system recovery also failed, we recommend updating Windows 10 or performing a clean installation of the OS. Perhaps some components of the system assembly are not compatible with Windows 10 and you need a system update.

4 Recommendations for the Elimination of BSoD:

1. 0x00000192 KERNEL_AUTO_BOOST_LOCK_ACQUISITION_WITH_RAISED_IRQL 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 0x00000192 KERNEL_AUTO_BOOST_LOCK_ACQUISITION_WITH_RAISED_IRQL 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 0x00000192 KERNEL_AUTO_BOOST_LOCK_ACQUISITION_WITH_RAISED_IRQL 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 0x00000192 KERNEL_AUTO_BOOST_LOCK_ACQUISITION_WITH_RAISED_IRQL is a malfunction of the RAM. To test it, you can use testing programs, such as memtest86+.
