About “KMode exception not handled”

As windows are the most popular and advanced operating software, there are two portions of the ode operating which are-

I the error identifier is not identifying, then there must be a grave issue of software corruption or expiring of windows applications drivers. Mainly the error takes place due to a faulty installation of hardware like RAM or any drives.
