The 0x00000024 or NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM error is another Windows Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error. This error message suggests that there’s a problem with your NTFS file system, the default file system for most Windows installations, which may be caused by various factors such as disk read/write errors, power outages, or virus attacks.

How to fix:

  1. Check Your Disk: Use the built-in Windows Check Disk tool (chkdsk) to scan your hard drive for errors. Open Command Prompt as an administrator, then type chkdsk /f /r and press Enter. Note that you may need to restart your computer for the tool to run.
  2. Run System File Checker (SFC): This tool can fix potential errors with your system files. To run it, open Command Prompt as an administrator, type sfc /scannow, and press Enter.
  3. Update Windows and Drivers: Make sure your operating system and drivers are up-to-date. Outdated system files or drivers can cause a range of issues, including BSOD errors.
  4. Scan for Malware: Run a comprehensive malware scan on your system. Some malware can cause system instability and errors like this.
  5. Use Windows Memory Diagnostic tool: Sometimes, bad memory can cause issues with the NTFS file system. To check your RAM, use the built-in Windows Memory Diagnostic tool.
  6. Restore Your System: If nothing else works, consider using System Restore to revert your system back to a state before the error began occurring.

Remember to backup all important data to prevent data loss. If none of these steps work, the problem may be more serious, and you might need professional assistance or reach out to Microsoft Support.
