The “CANCEL_STATE_IN_COMPLETED_IRP” Blue Screen of Death error (0x00000048) usually occurs when an Input Output Request Packet (IRP) has been completed but then unexpectedly cancelled. This could be due to a number of reasons, including problems with your hardware drivers, issues with your operating system, or a sudden power failure.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your Drivers: Faulty or outdated drivers are a common cause of this type of error. Make sure all of your system drivers, especially those related to your hardware, are up-to-date. Use the device manager to update your drivers, or go to the manufacturer’s website for the latest driver versions.
  2. Run Windows Updates: Always ensure that your operating system is up to date. Microsoft releases regular updates and patches which may resolve the issue.
  3. Check for Hardware Issues: If you’ve recently installed new hardware, this could be causing the error. Try removing the hardware to see if the problem persists. If your computer is older, you may also want to check your hard drive, RAM, and other hardware for failures.
  4. Run a System File Checker (SFC) Scan: The System File Checker tool can help identify and repair corrupt or missing system files. To run it, open Command Prompt as an administrator and type in sfc /scannow then hit enter.
  5. Perform a System Restore: If the issue started occurring recently, you could use System Restore to roll back your system to a state when it was working fine.

If the error still persists after trying these steps, it would be recommended to get in touch with a professional or Microsoft Support for further assistance.
