How to fix Dxgmms2.sys blue screen error

  There are several ways to fix this annoying blue screen error caused by Dxgmms2.sys.  We will have to try each of these methods unless we are sure what is causing the problem.

  Hardware test

  The first thing we need to do, as it is the most common cause of this error, is to make sure that the hardware, for example: RAM, GPU and hard disk, is working properly.

  Here we will have to try to remove the RAM and clean its pins and the connection port so that we can remove the dirt.  Next, we will reconnect the RAM to check if it is in good condition.  We will proceed to do the same with the rest of the devices mentioned.

  In the case of a hard drive, it is advisable to use a program to monitor and check its condition.

  Run the DirectX Diagnostic Tool

  DirectX is an API capable of enhancing the multimedia experience on your PC.  It has a diagnostic tool built into Windows that is able to show us all the information about your graphics hardware and software.

  For this we will have to press the Windows + R key combination, which will open the “Run” dialog and in this we will type “dxdiag” and press “Enter”.

  When the diagnostic tool starts, we will go to the "Display" tab and check that the three DirectX functions are enabled.

  If the functions are disabled, we must start installing DirectX again.

  Update drivers

  Obviously, corrupt or outdated drivers can also cause these kinds of problems, causing the computer not to function at its maximum efficiency.  To update drivers in Windows, third-party software is generally used to replace outdated and corrupt drivers.

  In case you want to update the GPU drivers;  It is recommended to visit the official websites of NVIDIA and AMD to download the appropriate driver, depending on the GPU in your computer.

  BIOS Reset

  A misconfigured BIOS is also capable of causing a blue screen to appear on your computer.  With this in mind, if all of the above is unable to fix the problem, we will have to reinstall all BIOS settings.

  The first thing will be access to the BIOS.  This will depend on the manufacturer, generally by restarting the computer and pressing the F8 or Del key.  On some computers, you will see BIOS access keys as soon as the computer starts.  In any case, you should check it out on Google.

  Once we're here, we'll look for the "Reset BIOS", "Load Enhanced Defaults" or "Restore Defaults" option, again depending on the manufacturer.  Generally, we will find it on the Save and Exit page or the Security page.
