Issue: How to fix INVALID_KERNEL_HANDLE on Windows?

Hello. I get the Blue screen error. I might start panicking right now. I think this is a major issue. INVALID_KERNEL_HANDLE is the explanation that is listed once the screen gets locked and blue. The error number is not provided. Can you explain this and offer any solution?

Solved Answer

The particular Blue Screen of Death[1] or the INVALID_KERNEL_HANDLE error has the code 0x00000093 on Windows mainly. The sudden crash and the blue screen can most definitely frustrate users.[2] The issue is prohibiting users from accessing the machine and logging into the system. The problem may be caused by other issues and have many reasons behind the spot error.

Mainly, such errors occur due to the corrupted disk drive or when the RAM gets damaged. Outdated device drivers and files altered by the third-party programs can also lead to stop error code. Sometimes these crash errors can still allow you to restart the machine because the sudden stop was initiated to avoid particular system damage.
