Kernel 32

By bdk_12 ·
What is the most common problem related to Kernel 32 errors (Blue Screen of Death)? I looked at Microsoft's support and there are hundreds of reasons for a Kernel 32 Blue Scree. This error appears at any given time in any given program.

...and there's your answer, I'm afraid. Can be caused by any number of different things from dodgy memory, to dodgy programs. We get it on some machines when anti-virus software updates are applied.

An error can occur for reasons to numerous to list. Try to narrow down the problem: when does it occur? Many times it can be bad memory, faulty settings in BIOS, bad tweaks in the registry....the list goes on and on and on. If you can't narrow down the problem I would back up the data and perform a clean install.

Kernel 32 errors will commonly come up when athe system is accessing the hardware and there is a conflict in the software drivers that the application being accessed is 32bit and the driver may be 16bit thus not being supported.As you stated there are a number of reasons for this and the likely cause for a BSOD.Basically the warning is given to let a user no that there is a problem with application accessing the hardware and there is a conflict with drivers that is causing a problem.Reading theBSOD it will give you info on the hardware giving you the problem.Display drivers are the most common cause.

You are right, and indeed I have seen many reasons which caused this error. The first one, of course, is not enough memory. But, for my computer, many times it was caused by pressing the start button before the start menu finished loading. There maybe other common reasons, but what i remember for now is these two. Hope this answers your question!

i have had the same problem with an AMD K6-2 450Mhz Processor, when i contacted a technician he suggested that this might be caused by ram ( i was using PC100 dimms) and suggested that i replace the ram. this problem also seems to occurr more often with the Athlon Using PC133 dimms.
