Fix: SECURE_PCI_CONFIG_SPACE_ACCESS_VIOLATION Error

The "SECURE_PCI_CONFIG_SPACE_ACCESS_VIOLATION" error typically occurs when there is an issue with accessing the PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) configuration space in a secure manner. This error can have various causes, including hardware or driver issues. Here are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot and fix this error:

  1. Update Drivers: Outdated or incompatible drivers can cause this error. Make sure all your device drivers, especially those related to your PCI devices (e.g., graphics card, network adapter), are up to date. Visit the manufacturers' websites or use driver update software to download and install the latest drivers.

  2. Check Hardware: Faulty hardware components, such as the PCI devices themselves or the motherboard, can cause access violations. Ensure that all hardware components are properly connected, and there are no loose connections or physical damage. If possible, try swapping out suspect hardware with known working components to identify the source of the problem.

  3. Disable Overclocking: If you have overclocked your system, revert the settings to their default values. Overclocking can put additional strain on hardware components and cause instability, leading to errors like the one you're experiencing.

  4. Run System File Checker: Use the System File Checker (SFC) utility to scan and repair corrupted or missing system files. Open a Command Prompt as an administrator and enter the following command:

    sfc /scannow

    Allow the process to complete, and if any issues are found, the utility will attempt to fix them.

  5. Check for Malware: Malicious software can interfere with system operations and cause errors. Run a thorough scan with reliable antivirus or antimalware software to detect and remove any potential threats.

  6. Check Event Viewer: The Event Viewer can provide additional information about the error and its source. Open the Event Viewer by pressing Windows Key + R, then entering "eventvwr.msc" and pressing Enter. Look for any critical or error events related to the "SECURE_PCI_CONFIG_SPACE_ACCESS_VIOLATION" error. Note down any relevant details that might help identify the cause.

  7. Perform a System Restore: If the error started occurring recently and you can pinpoint it to a specific software or driver installation, you can try using System Restore to revert your computer back to a previous state when it was working correctly. Search for "System Restore" in the Start menu, follow the prompts, and select a restore point that predates the error.
