Q150314 What Are Fatal Exception Errors.
When you attempt to shut down your system or start Windows application (or even start Windows itself) you may encounter error such as:
“A fatal exception XY has occurred at xxxx:xxxxxxxx”
Fatal exception errors occur in the following situations:
> Access to an illegal instruction has occurred
> Invalid data or code has been accessed
> The privilege level of a certain operation is invalid
If any of the above have occurred it is likely that your system will need to be rebooted or shut down – however this depends on the seriousness of the error.
In the first error message shown above, XY means the ‘processor
exception from 00 to 0F’. The’ xxxx:xxxxxxxx’
represents the enhanced instruction pointer to the code segment;
the 32-bit address is where the exception occurred. Windows itself
does not cause this error but it does have the exception-handling
routine for this particular processor exception.
