How to Fix Kernel Stack Inpage Errors With Blue Screens

By Lee Prangnell

A Kernel Stack Inpage Error is an issue within Microsoft Windows. The symptoms that present when this issue occurs are the following: a system crash and a system halt screen --- commonly referred to as the "blue screen of death." An issue with the Windows paging file typically causes this error, which is usually the result of a defective hard disk drive --- bad sectors are often the primary cause. The Microsoft Windows "chkdsk" command line utility can repair faulty hard disk drives with these symptoms and resolve the issues caused by the Kernel Stack Inpage Error.

Step 1

Click "Start" and type "cmd" in the search bar.

Step 2

Right-click the "cmd" icon in the search results and select "Run as administrator."

Step 3

Type the text "chkdsk c: /f /r" and press "Enter" on your keyboard. Follow prompts to type "y" and press "Enter" if you need to restart your computer before chkdsk will run. Chkdsk will check your default system C: drive for errors. The "/f" switch will fix any errors that it detects on the hard disk drive, and the "/r" switch will recover good information from bad sectors of the hard disk drive and isolate the bad sectors so that the system won't use them in the future.

Step 4

Restart your computer. You will not receive any more "Kernel Stack Inpage Errors" in Microsoft Windows.
