The 0x00000004 or INVALID_DATA_ACCESS_TRAP error is usually caused by internal errors reported by the processor to the Windows operating system. It might be due to issues like voltage fluctuations or insufficient RAM.

How to fix:

  1. Check Power Supply and Voltage Stability: Voltage fluctuations can cause several issues in your computer, including this error. Make sure your power supply is reliable and stable. If you are using a desktop computer, you might want to check the health of your power supply unit.
  2. Check RAM: Insufficient or malfunctioning RAM can also cause this error. You might want to check if your computer has enough RAM for its tasks. If you have recently added new RAM to your system, ensure that it is compatible with your motherboard. You could also run a memory test to check if your existing RAM is functioning correctly.
  3. Update Drivers: Although this error is usually caused by hardware issues, it could sometimes be due to outdated or faulty drivers. Make sure all your drivers are up-to-date.
  4. Clean Dust: Excessive dust in the CPU can cause overheating and result in internal errors. Clean your CPU and ensure that it’s not overheating.
  5. Perform a System Check: Use built-in Windows utilities like CHKDSK and SFC to perform a system check and repair system files if needed.
  6. Contact Support: If you’ve tried all these steps and the error still persists, it would be best to contact Microsoft Support or a professional technician for further assistance.
