Steps to fix NO MORE SYSTEM PTES Windows 10 error
Solution 1 – Make sure your drivers and Windows 10 are up to date
As previously mentioned, many BSoD errors can be caused by a software issue or incompatible hardware. In order to eliminate most of the hardware and software issues, we advise you to regularly perform Windows update. Microsoft is constantly releasing new updates for Windows 10, and many of these updates offer bug fixes for many software and hardware issues. In order to make sure that Windows 10 is running without any incompatibility issues, be sure to download Windows updates regularly.
Downloading updates is rather important, but it’s crucial to keep your drivers up to date as well. Certain hardware isn’t fully compatible with Windows 10, and this is why it’s mandatory to update your drivers. Updating drivers is relatively simple, and in order to update a specific driver you just need to visit your hardware manufacturer’s website and download the drivers for your device. Alternatively, you can download the necessary drivers by using Device Manager. To update your drivers with Device Manager follow these steps:
- Open Power User Menu by pressing Windows Key + X and select Device Manager from the list.
- Locate the driver you wish to update, right click it and choose Update Driver Software.
- Select Search automatically for updated driver software. Windows 10 will download all the necessary drivers for this device.
- Repeat these steps for all the drivers you wish to update.
If you have a CD with drivers that you got along with your hardware, you can also use it if you haven’t installed any recent drivers. Drivers on your CD might be outdated a bit, but they might work better than the default Windows 10 drivers.
Update drivers automatically
Searching for drivers on your own can be time-consuming. So, we advise you to use a tool that will do this for you automatically. Using an automatic driver updater will certainly save you from the hassle of searching for drivers manually, and it will always keep your system up to date with the latest drivers.
Tweakbit’s Driver Updater (approved by Microsoft and Norton Antivirus) will help you update drivers automatically and prevent PC damage caused by installing the wrong driver versions. After several tests, our team concluded that this is the best-automatized solution.
Here is a quick guide on how to use it:
- Download and install TweakBit Driver Updater
- Once installed, the program will start scanning your PC for outdated drivers automatically. Driver Updater will check your installed driver versions against its cloud database of the latest versions and recommend proper updates. All you need to do is wait for the scan to complete.
- Upon scan completion, you get a report on all problem drivers found on your PC. Review the list and see if you want to update each driver individually or all at once. To update one driver at a time, click the ‘Update driver’ link next to the driver name. Or simply click the ‘Update all’ button at the bottom to automatically install all recommended updates.
Note: Some drivers need to be installed in multiple steps so you will have to hit the ‘Update’ button several times until all of its components are installed.
Solution 2 – Run the BSOD Troubleshooter
If updating your drivers didn’t resolve the problem, we’re going to use Windows 10’s troubleshooting tools. The first tool we’re going to use is the built-in troubleshooter that can be found in the Settings app. You can use this tool to resolve all sorts of issues within the system, including BSODs.
To run Windows 10’s built-in troubleshooter, follow these instructions:

- Right-click on the Start Menu button, and open Command Prompt (Admin).
- Enter the following line and press Enter: sfc/scannow
- Wait until the process is done (it may take a while).
- If the solution is found, it will automatically be applied.
- Now, close the Command Prompt and restart your computer.
Solution 4 – Run DISM
And the third troubleshooter we’re going to use is DISM. Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) is a powerful tool that reloads the system image. So, it can also resolve potential BSOD errors.

In Command Prompt you should enter the following (but remember to use the letters that match your hard drive partitions on your PC):
This is just our example, so keep in mind that you have to perform chkdsk command for every hard drive partition that you have.
