The 0x00000022 or FILE_SYSTEM error is a Windows Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error. This typically indicates that the operating system encountered a general file system error that could not be classified. This type of error can occur due to various reasons, such as disk read/write errors, power outages, or even software bugs.

How to fix:

  1. Check Your Disk: Use the built-in Windows tool chkdsk to check your hard drive for errors. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type chkdsk /f /r, then press Enter. Note that you may need to restart your computer for this tool to run.
  2. Update Windows and Drivers: Make sure your Windows system and drivers are up-to-date. Microsoft frequently releases updates to address issues and enhance system performance.
  3. Run System File Checker (SFC): This tool can fix potential system file errors. Open the Command Prompt as an administrator and type sfc /scannow, then press Enter.
  4. Check for Malware: Use a reliable antivirus program to scan your computer for any malware. Malicious software can cause various issues, including BSOD errors.
  5. Clean Boot: Perform a clean boot to start Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This can help you troubleshoot software conflicts that may cause the BSOD.
  6. Memory Diagnostic: Run the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool to check your system’s RAM for errors.

Remember, it’s crucial to regularly back up your data to prevent data loss from BSODs or other issues. If the problem persists, you might want to consider seeking help from a professional or Microsoft Support.
