The KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR error most often appears in the Windows 10 operating system when there is not enough free space on the hard drive or in a specific volume where the operating system files are located. As a result, the system does not have enough free space for full-fledged operation, the user is notified of the problem through a blue screen.
The easiest solution to the problem is to free up hard disk space. To do this, it is enough to remove unnecessary programs and games from the computer (especially if they are installed on the hard disk used by the operating system), clear the cache, delete residual program files, etc. For cleaning it is convenient to use programs like CCLeaner. The software automatically scans the hard drive for unnecessary and unused files, and then performs cleaning.
Fixing KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR error via swap file
Another reason for the appearance of the problem is that the paging file is not activated on the computer or there is not enough space for the system to work properly. The main function of the paging file is to compensate for the insufficient amount of RAM on the computer. In some cases, using the paging file is impractical, and disabling the function can increase the lifespan of the solid state drive.
If the paging file is activated, but the failure still appears, this may indicate an incorrectly set volume (both too large and too small paging files negatively affect the operation of the system). In any case, the computer settings need to be adjusted.
The KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR error can also appear when using an outdated version of the operating system. Microsoft is constantly working to increase the performance and stability of the system, removes various errors in the software, eliminates conflicts between basic programs, etc.
If the automatic update of Windows 10 is disabled, and you have never installed manual updates, the error is most likely due to this. You need to go to "Settings", find "Update Center" and give the computer the ability to independently install the latest updates.
Another reason for the appearance of a blue screen is the infection of the Win 10 operating system with viruses. Some malicious software, getting into the system, disguises itself as drivers, services and firmware, interferes with the correct operation of Windows 10, and slows down the download speed. Windows built-in security mechanisms log the failure and generate a blue screen.
It is required to conduct a full system scan with one of the antiviruses (if possible, it is advisable to scan several programs at once) and take appropriate measures if the virus was eventually detected.
