    Fix BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO error on Windows computer

    WinClub, Oct 21, 2018


    I have a Windows 7 Toshiba laptop and have recently updated my computer to the new Windows 10. All of the sudden my sound quit working and I looked up how to fix that but never did. Then the next day, the blue screen of death popped up and gave the error BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO.
    I have looked up multiple ways to fix this and non have worked. Any suggestions on how I might go about fixing this problem?
