The 0xc1900107 error code typically occurs when an outdated or corrupt driver is installed on the computer. This can happen when a user manually updates a driver without first checking to see if a more recent driver is available from the manufacturer. It can also happen if a computer is upgraded from one version of Windows to another and the older driver is not compatible with the new version of Windows. In either case, the solution is to remove the outdated or corrupt driver and install the most recent driver from the manufacturer.

1. Restart the computer and try again

The steps to perform a restart on a computer vary depending on the type of computer and the operating system installed on it. However, the most common procedure for restarting a computer is to press the power button to turn it off, wait a few seconds, and then turn it back on. If the computer is running Windows, holding down the power button until the computer shuts down may also work. If the problem persists after trying these steps, please provide the support representative with the error code you received.

  2. Tap on the System Update tab.
