You’ll need to log into Windows 10 on your affected computer to try the following fixes. If you’re having trouble restarting your computer, boot it into Safe Mode and then try the following fixes.

Fix 1: Update all your available drivers

Most of the time,  the UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP error is caused by incompatible, faulty or outdated drivers. So you should update your available device drivers to see if it fixes your problem. 

Whether you choose to update the device drivers manually, using Windows Update, or you use a trusted third party product, it’s essential that you have the latest correct device drivers for your operating system at all times.

If you’re not comfortable playing with device drivers, we recommend using Driver Easy. It’s a tool that detects, downloads and (if you go Pro) installs any driver updates your computer needs.

To update your drivers with Driver Easy, just click the Scan Now button, then when it lists the drivers you need to update, click Update. The correct drivers will be downloaded, and you can install them – either manually through Windows or all automatically with Driver Easy Pro.

Fix 2: Run Memory Diagnostics

Memory corruption can also cause such blue screen error. You can run memory diagnostics to fix it.

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key + together to invoke the Run box.
  2. Type mdsched.exe and press Enter.
  3. Click Restart now and check for problems(recommended).
  4. Now Windows will check the memory automatically. Wait till the testing 100% completes.

After the testing, Windows will restart automatically.

Fix 3: Run System File Checker

The missing or corrupted system file can always cause blue screen error. Run System File Checker to scan and repair the missing or corrupted system files when UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP appears.

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key + X  together to open the quick-access menu.
  2. Click Command Prompt (Admin).
  3. Click Yes when prompted by User Account Control.
  4. Type sfc /scannow in the open command prompt window and press Enter. Wait till verification 100% complete.

Fix 4: Check for Windows Update

Either hardware or software issues can lead to blue screen error. And Windows updates can address security flaws and bugs related to both hardware and software. So make sure you’ve install all the new Windows 10 updates to keep your Windows 10 healthy, stable and away from blue screen error.

Here’s how you can check for Windows Update

  1. Type Windows Update in the box. Click Check for updates on the top result.
  2. Click Check for updates on the right pane of poping-up window.

Go on to follow the on-screen instructions to install the updates.
