Solution 1: Uninstall Anti Virus Program

If antivirus is the reason, as it has been in many cases, uninstalling it is the most appropriate step to do.

In case you are worried that removing antivirus will leave your device unprotected, don’t worry. Windows 10 has “MICROSOFT DEFENDER” as default and a powerful virus protection tool.

Once you are convinced for uninstalling, lets move to steps:

Step 1: First, hold the windows key and press X.

Step 2: a pop menu would have opened .Now choose the Control panel from the list.

Step 3: Next select “programs”.

Step 4: Next under Programs you will see a list of programs installed in your PC.

Step 5: Right click over every anti virus program present and select uninstall.

Step 6: Answer yes for confirmation and follow steps to complete installation.

Step 7: Finally ,restart your computer.

Uninstalling antivirus has eliminated the issues most of the time. In case ,it didnt work here, move on to the next one.

Solution 2: Check Hard Disk Health

Sometimes ,when your hard disk health is not fine i.e. it continuously dies, it becomes the primary cause of the issue. Dying hard drives or a bad sector of hard drive may have affected the working and ultimately led to the issue of ‘Unexpected storage exception’.

For confirming ,we have to check the health of disk. We can do so, simply, by installing health diagnostic tools like Crystal devices and checking the health status. Once the software gets launched ,it will give you a review stating GOOD/BAD. If it shows BAD hard disk is the reason and best we can do is to replace it.

Solution 3: Check Driver Issues

Incompatible drivers also have been found under charge of this issue. If your PC has any outdated software or drivers ,system conflict events are common. For solving ,just check about update of software on windows updates.

Follow the below steps to solve driver issue:

Step 1: First, we will disable automatic installation. For that “gpedit.msc” in the start menu search.

Step 2: Then, you will see “ computer configuration” on the left hand side.

Step 3: Under computer configuration, open administration templates ,next ‘System’ and finally ‘Device installation’. Click over it.

Step 4: Next, on right hand side ,double click on “Prevent installation of devices not described by other policy settings”

Step 5: Next, click Enabled and then OK.

Step 6: Next, restart your computer and open the device manager .

Step 7: Then, go to ‘Sound video and game controllers” and right click on “Conexant Smart Audio” or “IDT High Definition Audio” to uninstall it. Ensure that “Delete the driver software for the device”. Checkbox is checked.

Step 8: Next, press Windows +X and open “ Program and features”.

Step 9: Then, uninstall everything that is related to Conexant/IDT and dolby.

Step 10: Then ,Reboot your computer.

Solution 4: Turning Off Fast Startup

In windows 10,features of fast startup can also be guilty sometimes for the issue. This happens as:-

When the user does fast startup ,the software works as a hybrid sleep mode ,as in earlier versions. On shutting down, Windows logs off all users and closes all operations, as it does in cold reboot.

At this stage Windows is kind of softly rebooted. When you restart your computer, as Windows has shut off all drivers ,Windows just refreshes the drivers instead of turning on or reloading. This, just refreshing method, makes it faster but at the same time, sometimes also triggers this issue when it fails to on the required driver each time.

So for resolving the problem, we need to turn off the fast startup:-

Step 1: Hold the windows and press ‘R’. Run application would have been opened.

Step 2: Next, type “Control panel” and hit enter to go to the control panel.

Step 3: Then ,tap on Power Option.

Step 4: Now, select “choose what the power buttons do”.

Step 5: Next, click over “ change settings that are currently unavailable.”

Step 6: Finally, move to the bottom and uninstall the “Turn on fast startup “ option, save changes and exit. Restart your computer.

Solution 5: Updating Your Display Drivers

As mentioned in SOLUTION 2, outdated drivers can also cause this issue and provide your annoying experience. For this ,we will uninstall the present driver and upon restart ,the default display driver will get installed automatically.

Steps are below:

Step 1: At first ,open the device manager and expand the Display adapter section.

Step 2: Next, right click over display hardware and choose uninstall devices. Then press OK in confirmation dialog box.

Step 3: Now, restart your PC and tap the WINDOWS+S button and type “windows update” and check for updates.

During this, Windows will automatically check and install the updates. After updating is complete ,check if the problem is solved or not. Also, if updating does not solved your problem ,you can reinstall the older drives. Here is the procedure :-

Step 1: First, go to device manager ,right click over driver and select update drivers.

Step 2: Next, select “Browse my computer for driver software”.

Step 3: Then, choose the required driver and it will get installed.

Finally, restart your computer and check if the problem is still there or not.

Solution 6: Running System File Checker

System file checker is an in-built feature of WINDOWS for scanning and fixing the errors due to corrupt files or system errors in the operating system.

Sfc scan can easily check the problem in software causing complications and most probably will fix it.

For running SFC scan ,here is the instructions:-

Step 1: Hold windows key and tap ‘R’ .Type “taskmgr” IN DIALOG BOX of run application.

Step 2: Next, open the file option and choose “Run no task”.

Step 3: Then, type “powershell” and check the option stating “Create this task with administrative privileges”.

Step 4: Now, type “sfc/scannow” and hit “Enter” .This process will take some time.

Step 5: If results state that if found some errors but were unable to fix ,type “DISM/Online/Cleanup-Image/RestoreHealth ” in Powershell.

This will lead to downloading of corrupt files and replacing them. Finally, after the error gets fixed ,restart your computer. Also, this process takes time according to your internet connection. Don’t cancel it at any time.

Solution 7: Turning Off Sleep Mode

If the last one didn’t work ,move on to this one which has proved to be efficient. This causes problems due to similar reasons as in fast startup.

For turning off sleep mode, Follow below steps:

Step 1: Firstly, right click on battery icon present at right bottom on desktop screen and select ‘power options’ .In PC, if this option is not present, tap windows+S and type “choose a power plant” and select the most relevant one.

Step 2: Next, click on “Change plan setting”, in front of the active power plan.

Step 3: Then, select the “never” option under the “put the computer to sleep” line. After that ,save changes and exit.

Step 4: Finally ,restart and reboot your computer.

Solution 8: Reconnecting Your Hard Drive

Many times, as mentioned earlier too, the hard drive has been seen as the main issue. Reconnect your hard drive to check if it solves the problem.

For connecting (if you have tower):-

turn off your computer >> unplug power and take off the lid >> disconnect the black and white wires going to the motherboard.

Wait for sometime and plug it back in. Restart your computer and check.
