The error “NDIS_INTERNAL_ERROR” with stop code 0x0000004F typically indicates a serious problem with your Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS), a Windows specification for how communication protocol programs and network device drivers should communicate with each other.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your Network Drivers: The NDIS error can often be caused by outdated or corrupted network drivers. Visit the manufacturer’s website for your networking device and download the latest drivers.
  2. Use Windows’ Networking Troubleshooter: Windows comes with built-in troubleshooters that can sometimes resolve network issues. Access it through Settings > Network & Internet > Network troubleshooter.
  3. Check for Windows Updates: New updates often come with fixes for known issues. Navigate to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update, then click on “Check for updates”.
  4. Reset Your Network Settings: You can reset all network settings to their defaults. Navigate to Settings > Network & Internet > Network reset. Be aware that this will remove all network adapters and set all networking components back to their original settings.
  5. Scan for Malware: In some cases, malware could be causing the issue. Use a reliable antivirus software to scan your system for potential threats.
  6. Reinstall the Network Card: Physically removing the network card from your computer and then reinstalling it can also resolve some issues. Be sure to power down and unplug your computer first.
  7. Reinstall Windows: If none of the above steps work, reinstalling Windows can often resolve persistent issues. However, remember to back up all your important files before doing this as it will erase everything on your system drive.

Remember to always create a restore point before making any major changes to your system, and if you’re not comfortable performing any of these steps yourself, consult with a professional.
