Blue Screen Of Death has been torturing users for ages. This issue is one of the most annoying ones in history of Windows, and various factors can cause it. But this time, we hopefully have a solution for CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION error.
BSOD Appears Because Of CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION
There are a couple of things that could cause CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION error. One of the reasons CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION appears is when kernel of your system finds critical error in itself or associated data. This usually happens when you want to run an emulator of some other system on your Windows 8/8.1 (Android emulator, for example). To solve this problem try downloading Hardware Acceleration Manager from your chipset manufacturer’s site.

This critical error could also appear due some corruption in your external hardware. To find out what external hardware causes you problems, disconnect all external devices except mouse and keyboard. When you find out what piece of hardware gives you headaches, try updating its driver or consider replacing it with the new one, if there’s no other solution.  Also, check if drivers of your other external hardware are up to date, just in case to prevent this problem from happening again.

You also should check if there’s any software on your computer that may cause CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION error, because one of the users of Microsoft forum reported that he had program called MacDrive installed on his computer and that program caused the above mentioned error.

We showed you solutions for just a couple of problems that cause Blue Screen Of Death, but unfortunately there are a lot of other software and hardware issues that could cause this annoying error, which will force you to constantly look for the solution. If you have some additional questions, comments or suggestions, please reach for the comments section, we would love to hear your thoughts.
