Windows doesn’t really do a great job when it comes to finding the latest drivers for the appropriate GPU you may have on your computer.

Note

If you find compability mode doesn’t fix the problem, then what you can try to do is run the app (that’s giving you the error) in compatibility mode but with fullscreen optimisations disabled. 

 

Try running your app again to see if the error has been fixed.

 

 

4. Time to Reinstall.

Sometimes a game or an app you might install or be using  can get itself in a sticky situation.

When that happens, uninstalling and installing back your game or app that’s giving you this error can most of the time fix it has it already has worked for many other users too. 

So go ahead, uninstall the game and try reinstalling it back and see if the error has gone.

If none of the above works for you, then here’s what you do.

 

 

5. Check your Hardware.

If you’ve tried all the above methods and you still find the error still persists, then it’s time to have your hardware checked out.

You see, if your GPU is damaged then none of the above solution will work unless and until you have the hardware fixed.

One clear sign that you need to have your hardware (specifically your GPU) checked out, is if you’ve had trouble with games in the past getting errors such as the Bad_Module_Error you’re getting right now.
