Part 4. How To Fix Printer Error 0X0000007e Windows 10?

We have discussed the bugcheck was: 0x00000007e bsod error above. There is another 0x00000007e error happens when connecting to printer which is not a blue screen of death error. It typically occurs when you try to connect to a network printer. The error message usually reads "Windows cannot connect to printer. Details: Operation failed with error 0x0000007e" or "Windows cannot connect to printer Operation failed with error 0x0000007e".

The error 0x0000007e is caused by a missing or corrupted printer driver. In most cases, the error occurs when you try to connect to a printer that is directly connected to another Windows computer (print server) and shared for printing from other computers over the network.

To fix printer error 0x0000007e, you can try the following steps:

  1. Disable your antivirus software temporarily. Sometimes antivirus software can interfere with printer drivers and cause this error.
  2. Uninstall any unsafe or incompatible third-party drivers. You can use a driver updater tool to scan your computer for outdated or corrupt drivers.
  3. Check if you have enough disk space. If your hard drive is low on space, it can prevent Windows from installing or updating printer drivers.
  4. Use the Registry Editor to delete the corrupted registry key. To do this, open the Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and navigate to the following key:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Printers\

    Expand the branch with the printer name and delete the BIDI key in the CopyFiles section.


We often panic when we see the BSoD with some unknown stop code as the issue is unknown to us. In this article, we have discussed one of such scan codes, i.e., 0x0000007e. We have proposed different methods to resolve the issue but recommend using the PassFab Computer Management due to its user-friendliness and feature-richness.
