Fix BAD SYSTEM CONFIG INFO BSoD error

Solution 1 – Update your drivers

Outdated or incompatible drivers can cause many issues. For example, if your drivers don’t work, you won’t be able to use certain hardware, and in worst case scenario, you’ll get a BSoD error such as BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO.

Since many Blue Screen of Death errors are commonly caused by drivers, we strongly advise you to update your drivers as often as you can. In order to avoid all BSoD errors, be sure that all major components are up to date with latest drivers.

Downloading drivers is fairly simple, and all you need to do is to visit your hardware manufacturer’s website, locate your device and download the latest drivers for it.

After installing the latest drivers, BSoD errors should be resolved. Bear in mind that you’ll have to update as many drivers as you can in order to successfully fix this problem.

In order to fix BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO and many other BSoD errors, it’s important that you update all drivers on your PC.

This can be a long process, especially if you do it manually, download TweakBit’s Driver Updater Tool (100% safe and tested by us) to do it automatically.

This tool is approved by Microsoft and Norton Antivirus. After several tests, our team concluded that this is the best automatized solution in order to prevent permanent damage to your system by downloading and installing the wrong driver versions.

Solution 2 – Use bcdedit command

BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO error can often appear if your system configuration isn’t correct.

If your system isn’t properly configured, and the number of processors and amount of memory in the configuration file doesn’t match the correct value, that will cause BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO error.

To make things even worse, this error will prevent access to Windows 10 completely. Although this sounds rather serious, we can easily fix this issue by doing the following:

  1. Restart your computer while it boots. Repeat this step until you start Automatic Repair.
  2. Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Command Prompt.
  3. Once the Command Prompt starts, enter the following lines:
    • bcdedit/deletevalue {default} numproc
      Bad_system_config_info registry bcdedit/deletevalue {default} numproc
    • bcdedit/deletevalue {default} truncatememory
      Bad_system_config_info RAM bcdedit/deletevalue {default} truncatememory
