How to fix the blue screenshots of dxgkrnl sys in Windows 10


Let s see what the dxgkrnl sys file is for and how to solve the blue screens that occur in Windows 10 related to it

There are several causes that can cause the dreaded blue screenshots of death in Windows 10 or also known as BSOD , although here we we are going to focus on a specific type of file that can be one of the causes of all this, we refer to the dxgkrnl.sys file.

To begin we will say that this file is related to the driver of Microsoft DirectX , the set of technologies developed by Redmond itself to provide hardware acceleration for the multimedia applications more demanding such as 3D games or videos in HD format. And it is that over the years, the errors with blue screenshot for this system file have been increasing, so it is possible that, if this error occurs, the mentioned dxgkrnl.sys in principle it is infected with some type of malware.

This is something that we could solve, as with so many other important files of the system, through the security solution that we have installed, but that is not the only possible fault related to dxgkrnl.sys. And this is an important section for some actions related to the graphic section of Windows , so the bugs that directly affect you, can cause us more than one headache.

Therefore, and to detect possible problems in this graphical function integrated in Windows, we recommend you to run the DirectX diagnostic tool, since the screenshot may be related to the graphic APIs of the DirectX libraries . Therefore, to solve the problem we can try to execute this tool by typing the command "dxdiag" in the Start menu of the system , where we are going to point out the possible failures detected in this functionality after a few minutes of scanning.

If this does not work out, similarly We recommend that you update or reinstall DirectX in Windows 10, as this may be another basic solution to the problem mentioned above. This is because, by updating or reinstalling DirectX , you can replace the corrupt or incompatible DirectX components on the PC and thus avoid dreaded blue screenshots to which we referred.

Another alternative solution for all this is to use the DISM commands , elements that can be of great help when it comes to repair potentially damaged system files . To do this, we first access the Command Prompt with administrator permissions and enter these three commands sequentially, one by one:

  • Dism / Online / Cleanup -Image / CheckHealth
  • Dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / ScanHealth
  • Dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / RestoreHealth

At the same time We can also try to update the graphics drivers that we have installed on Windows, since the incompatibility between the operating system and that driver can also lead to problems like this, something that, for example, we can carry out from the device manager of the system. Also and related to this same theme, we can also try to uninstall the graphic driver and reinstall it again, something that results in more occasions than we think.

Other possible solutionsions for dxgkrnl.sys failure

Another solution for all this is to run the troubleshooter of the BSOD screens that comes with Windows 10 , an automatic tool that looks for problems on the computer based on the tasks performed by the problem solver . As you know, this is something that you can find in the Settings section of Windows 10, specifically in "Update and security / Troubleshoot."

Finally and if we focus In slightly more specific cases related to the graphic system installed in our equipment, if it belongs to the manufacturer NVIDIA , we can try deactivating the SLI technology in the control panel of the graphic drivers, technology that allows the use of multiple GPUs and that increases the performance of the graphics in the products of this firm.
