STOP 0x0000010D    |    Fix Windows Registry Errors    |    Repair Windows Error 0x0000010D


STOP Errors are usually the result of a hardware malfunction or device driver issue. It is also possible to receive a Blue Screen Error due to bad system memory, malfunctioning power supply, components overheating, or hardware overclocked beyond its specification. In older versions of the Windows OS you may also receive Blue Screen Errors due to incompatible DLL files.

Since the only option when receiving a Blue Screen Error is to reboot, any unsaved data is lost. With that in mind, it is very important to eliminate these errors to protect your data.

Basic Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting STOP Errors can be a difficult and time consuming process. Try these basic steps to fix your own Blue Scree Error. We hope it will help you avoid an expensive service call and provide a rewarding experience of solving the problem on your own.

Advanced Troubleshooting

The following details are for advanced users. These are provided for your convenience and may help those with advanced knowledge discover the root cause of their STOP Error.


The WDF_VIOLATION stop error code has a value of 0x0000010D. This indicates that Kernel-Mode Driver Framework (KMDF) detected that Windows found an error in a framework-based driver.


The following parameters are displayed on the blue screen. Parameter 1 indicates the specific error code of the stop error code. Parameter 4 is reserved.

Parameter 1Parameter 2Parameter 3Cause of Error
0x1Pointer to a WDF_POINTER_ROUTINE_TIMED_OUT_DATA structure Reserved A framework-based driver has timed out during a power operation. This typically means that the device stack did not set the DO_POWER_PAGABLE bit and a driver attempted a pageable operation after the paging device stack was powered down.
0x2Reserved Reserved An attempt is being made to acquire a lock that is currently being held.
0x3WDFREQUEST handle The number of outstanding references that remain on both buffers Windows Driver Framework Verifier has encountered a fatal error. In particular, an I/O request was completed, but a framework request object cannot be deleted because there are outstanding references to the input buffer, the output buffer, or both.
0x4Reserved The caller's address A NULL parameter was passed to a function that required a non-NULL value.
0x5The handle value passed in Reserved A framework object handle of the incorrect type was passed to a framework object method.
0x6See table below.
0x7The handle of the framework object Reserved A driver attempted to delete a framework object incorrectly by calling WdfObjectDereference to delete a handle instead of calling WdfObjectDelete.
0x8The handle of the DMA transaction object Reserved An operation occurred on a DMA transaction object while it was not in the correct state.
0x9Currently unused.
0xAA pointer to a WDF_QUEUE_FATAL_ERROR_DATA structure Reserved A fatal error has occurred while processing a request that is currently in the queue.

0xBSee table below.
0xCWDFDEVICE handlePointer to new PnP IRPA new state-changing PnP IRP arrived while the driver was processing another state-changing PnP IRP.
0xDWDFDEVICE handlePointer to power IRPA device's power policy owner received a power IRP that it did not request. There might be multiple power policy owners, but only one is allowed. A KMDF driver can change power policy ownership by calling WdfDeviceInitSetPowerPolicyOwnership.
0xEIRQL at which the event callback function was called.IRQL at which the event callback function returned.An event callback function did not return at the same IRQL at which it was called. The callback function changed the IRQL directly or indirectly (for example, by acquiring a spinlock, which raises IRQL to DISPATCH_LEVEL, but not releasing the spinlock).
0xFAddress of an event callback function.ReservedAn event callback function entered a critical region, but it did not leave the critical region before returning.

If Parameter 1 is equal to 0x6, then a fatal error was made in handling a WDF request. In this case, Parameter 2 further specifies the type of fatal error that has been made, as defined by the enumeration WDF_REQUEST_FATAL_ERROR.

Parameter 2Parameter 3Cause of Error
0x1The address of the IRP No more I/O stack locations are available to format the underlying IRP.
0x2The WDF request handle value An attempt was made to format a framework request object that did not contain an IRP.
0x3The WDF request handle value The driver attempted to send a framework request that has already been sent to an I/O target.
0x4A pointer to a WDR_REQUEST_FATAL_ERROR_INFORMATION_LENGTH_MISMATCH_DATA structure that contains a pointer to the IRP, a WDF request handle value, an IRP major function, and the number of bytes attempted to be written The driver has completed a framework request, but has written more bytes to the output buffer than are specified in the IRP.

If Parameter 1 is equal to 0xB, then an attempt to acquire or release a lock was invalid. In this case, Parameter 3 further specifies the error that has been made.

Parameter 2Parameter 3Cause of Error
The handle value 0x0A handle passed to WdfObjectAcquireLock or WdfObjectReleaseLock represents an object that does not support synchronization locks.
A WDF spin lock handle 0x1The spin lock is being released by a thread that did not acquire it.


See the description of each code in the Parameters section for an explanation of the cause.

Resolving the Problem

Typically, the dump file will yield further information on the driver that caused this stop error code.

If Parameter 1 is equal to 0x2, examine the caller’s stack to determine the lock in question.

If Parameter 1 is equal to 0x3, the driver's Kernel-Mode Driver Framework error log will include details about the outstanding references.

If Parameter 1 is equal to 0x4, use the ln command with the value of Parameter 3 as its argument to determine which function requires a non-NULL parameter.

If Parameter 1 is equal to 0x7, use the !wdfkd.wdfhandle Parameter 2 extension command to determine the handle type.

If Parameter 1 is equal to 0xA, then the WDF_QUEUE_FATAL_ERROR_DATA structure will indicate either the problematic request or the queue handle. It will also indicate the NTSTATUS, if not STATUS_SUCCESS, when available.
