If you have recently installed Windows 10 Operating System on your PC or laptop and getting a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error of “Attempted Execute of Noexecute Memory,” then check this post which will help to fix the problem.
I too faced the same situation when bought my Windows 8.1 laptop and then upgraded to the Windows 10 OS. Frankly, I was thinking to reinstall the previous version again and not search the web. But when I went for the opposite of this, I really found this interesting. So I decided to write a guide to fix such error and help other Windows users like me.
What is the error of “attempted_execute_of_noexecute_memory”?
Each Operating system has two predefined areas:
The non-executable area is that in which the memory used to store the user data, and in the executable portion, the programs are allowed to compile and run.
After you install a new OS or upgrade the old one, then the initialization process starts automatically. This we all know. At the time when the device driver tries to execute a program or service from a non-executable area of the system memory during initialization, the Blue Screen error of attempted execute of noexecute memory occurs.
This mainly happens due to the faulty driver which attempts to run the program from the non-executable area. Sometimes the fault in RAM (Random Access Memory) also becomes the reason for this BSOD error which also called as ‘Windows STOP 0x000000FC.’ When your system faces this issue, it gets reboot or shutdown to prevent any damage.
Now, let’s check the process to solve this problem.
There are several ways to fix the STOP 0x000000FC error like using RAM to repair the files, updating or removing faulty drivers, maintaining the health of your PC, etc.
Solution-1: Use RAM to repair the Corrupt Files & Programs
Check if your system memory is working correctly or not. You can take help of “Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool” for doing this.
- Open the run dialog box by pressing Windows + R
- Type mdsched.exe in the box and press Enter
- The dialog box will appear asking to restart your PC now or later to run the program; you can choose as per your preference
- After the program starts, run the scan by following the instructions
- When the scan completes, the checking results will be shown on your display
If it shows that the memory is faulty, then you should replace it as soon as possible to prevent the damage. If the result indicates that the RAM is working properly, then go for the next solution below.
Solution-2: Update the Faulty Driver
