Method 1: uninstall antivirus and firewall from the system

The 'faulty_hardware_corrupted_page' error, as we have seen above, can be caused by third-party applications or even by the system itself, such as the default antivirus and firewall built into Windows 10.

One way to try to fix this blue screen error is to temporarily disable the Windows firewall, which you can do by following the path Control Panel> Security System> Windows Defender Firewall.



Once you are in this section you have to select the option Turn Windows Defender Antivirus on or off, then when another window pops up in this you have to select the option Disable Windows Defender Firewall.

After doing this you can check that the error is resolved and although disabling the firewall is not a recommended measure because the firewall protects the PC, it could be the solution to this problem, but if this does not work then you need to re-enable the firewall and try another solution.

Update Windows and drivers

Since the "faulty_hardware_corrupted_page" error can be caused by the lack of updates, it is a good idea to check if there are any pending updates on the system, to do so go to Start> Settings> Update & Security.

Now, to update the drives or drivers, you need to locate the section Device management, which you will reach by pressing the Windows + X keys simultaneously, when you perform these operations a series of options will appear including Device Manager, which you should Select.


Once this option is selected, a window will appear with the long list of installed drivers, in which you need to locate the problematic driver, right-click on it and select the Update Driver option.

A window will then appear with two options: update the driver manually or automatically online, choose the option you see the most in your opinion (for those not very tech savvy, the best option is to automatically update online).
