The “MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS” stop error (0x00000044) is a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error that usually occurs when a driver has mistakenly or incorrectly marked the same Input/Output Request Packet (IRP) as complete more than once. This is often due to a driver bug or conflict.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your Drivers: The error is usually related to a device driver, so updating your drivers may resolve the issue. This includes drivers for your motherboard, graphics card, network adapters, etc. Make sure to update the drivers from the manufacturer’s website or a trusted source.
  2. Roll Back Drivers: If you recently updated a driver and started getting the error, it might be worth it to roll back to the previous version of the driver. You can do this through the Device Manager in Windows.
  3. Check for Windows Updates: Sometimes, these errors can be resolved with a Windows update, as Microsoft occasionally releases software patches that can fix these kinds of issues.
  4. Boot in Safe Mode: Booting your computer in Safe Mode can help determine if the issue is being caused by a driver or another piece of software. If the error doesn’t occur in Safe Mode, it’s likely a software issue.
  5. System Restore: If you have a system restore point that was created before you started experiencing the error, you can try reverting your system to that point.
  6. Check for Hardware Issues: Faulty hardware can also cause this error. If the above steps don’t work, it may be worth it to check your hardware.

As always, proceed with caution when troubleshooting these types of errors. If you’re uncomfortable with any of these steps, it’s a good idea to contact a professional or someone with more experience.
