How to Fix a Code 37 Error

Restart your computer if you haven"t already restarted it at least once after seeing the Code 37 error.

It"s possible that the error Code 37 you"re seeing was caused by a temporary problem with the hardware. If so, a restart of your computer might be all you need khổng lồ fix it.

Unbởi the change if you can, restart your computer, and then kiểm tra again for the Code 37 error.

Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:

Removingor reconfiguring the newly installed device

Delete the UpperFilters và LowerFilters registry values. One comtháng cause of Code 37 errors is the corruption of two registry values in the DVD/CD-ROM Drive sầu Class registry key.

Reinstall the driver for the device.Uninstalling và then reinstalling the drivers for the device is another likely solution to lớn a Code 37 error, especially if the error is showing up on a device other than a BD/DVD/CD drive.

To vị this, open Device Manager and then right-clichồng or tap-and-hold on the device, go inlớn the Drivertab, & then chooseUninstall. When finished, use thekích hoạt > Scan for hardware changesoption to lớn force Windows to look for new drivers.

If a USB device is generating the Code 37 error, uninstall every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers hardware category in Device Manager as part of the driver reinstall. This includes any USB Mass Storage Device, USB Host Controller, and USB Root Hub.

Correctly reinstalling a driver is not the same as simply updating a driver. A full driver reinstall involves completely removing the currently installed driver và then letting Windows install it over again from scratch.

Update the drivers for the device. Installing the lathử nghiệm drivers for a device with the Code 37 error is another possible fix.

Be sure that you"re installing the appropriate, manufacturer-supplied 64-bit driver for the device if you"re using a 64-bit version of Windows. This is always important but not doing so can be the cause of a Code 37 issue, so we wanted khổng lồ hotline it out here.

Some users have reported Code 37 issues that couldn"t be solved by a driver reinstall but did go away after running the System File Checker tool. This means that at least some Code 37 errors might be caused by issues with Windows itself.

Replace the hardware. If none of the previous troubleshooting has worked, you might need to lớn replace the hardware that has the Code 37 error.

While not very likely, it is also possible that the device is not compatible with your version of Windows. This might be an issue if the hardware with the Code 37 error was manufactured many years ago or if your hardware is newer but your operating system is more than a version old. You can reference the Windows HCL for compatibility if you think this might apply lớn you.

If you"re sure that the hardware itself isn"t the cause of this particular Code 37 error, you could try a repair install of Windows & then a clean install of Windows if the repair didn"t work. I don"t recommkết thúc doing either of those before you try replacing the hardware, but they may be your only options left.
