How to Fix a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSOD in Windows


If you get a Blue Screen of Death with the stop code SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, there could be many causes, though a bad driver is always a likely culprit. The usual bug check code that goes with a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION is 0x3B. Interestingly, the numeric code has numerous (7!) associations in the Microsoft Error Lookup Tool, so this one is best researched using the text-based stop code by itself, or in combination with the numeric code. Microsoft’s bug check page for this error provides this explanation for its cause: “This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.” 

File System Fix For SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

Microsoft also notes on the bug check page for SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION  that “If a driver that is responsible for the error can be identified, its name is printed on the blue screen…” Indeed, I’ve personally experienced this error with the Windows 10 NTFS file system driver (Ntfs.sys) identified as the culprit. This identification is a mixed blessing, because it does tell you some kind of file system error occurred. That said, one cannot and should not replace OS-level drivers for Windows as one might do for a device driver of some kind.
