The “INTERRUPT_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED” error (0x0000003D) is a type of Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error. It usually occurs when the system is unable to handle an interrupt exception. This is often caused by driver issues or faulty hardware.

How to fix:

  1. Update or Rollback Drivers: This error is often caused by a problematic driver. If you recently updated a driver, you may want to rollback to the previous version to see if that resolves the problem. If you haven’t updated your drivers recently, you might want to check for updates, particularly for your GPU and network card.
  2. Check for Windows Updates: Ensure your operating system is up-to-date with the latest patches and updates.
  3. Scan for Malware: Use a reliable antivirus or anti-malware tool to scan your system for any potential threats.
  4. Check Your Hardware: If your PC is older or has been subjected to physical stress (like drops or impacts), a hardware component might be failing. If you’re comfortable doing so, you could open your PC and check for obvious issues like loose connections. You could also run a diagnostic tool to check the health of components like your hard drive or memory.
  5. Use System Restore: If the problem started recently, you could use System Restore to roll your system back to a point before the problem started.

Please remember to backup your important data before making significant changes to your system, and consider seeking professional assistance if you’re not comfortable performing these steps yourself.
