The error code 0x0000002E, or “DATA_BUS_ERROR,” usually suggests that a severe memory problem has occurred. This could mean that data was corrupted on the bus that transfers data between the computer’s internal components. This error is most often associated with defective RAM modules, motherboard problems, or other hardware issues.

How to fix:

  1. Check Your RAM: This is often the most common source of this error. If you have multiple RAM modules, try to isolate the issue by running your computer with one module at a time. You can also use memory diagnostic tools, such as Windows Memory Diagnostic or Memtest86, to check for errors.
  2. Check Other Hardware: Besides the RAM, other hardware in your computer might also be causing the error. This can include your motherboard, CPU, or hard drives. Make sure these components are not overheating, are free of dust, and are properly connected.
  3. Update BIOS/UEFI: An outdated BIOS or UEFI could potentially cause this error. Check your motherboard manufacturer’s website for any updates and carefully follow their instructions.
  4. Update Drivers: Make sure all of your device drivers, especially for hardware components, are up to date. Outdated drivers can sometimes cause BSOD errors.
  5. Check for System Updates: Ensure your operating system is up to date with the latest patches and updates.
  6. Run a System File Checker (SFC) Scan: System files could be corrupted and causing the error. Run an SFC scan by opening Command Prompt as an administrator, typing sfc /scannow, and pressing Enter.

If none of the above steps work, you may need to seek help from a professional, as the problem could be serious and may require more in-depth hardware troubleshooting.
