Error Thread stuck in device driver

This error has started to occur recently. I don't know what caused the error, but since 2-3 months, every time I try to update my AMD Radeon M355 driver, a blue screen occurs with the error message "THREAD STUCK IN DEVICE DRIVER".

    great question.
    no PC told at all maker or model.
    no OS told at all xp ,vista,w7/8/10????
    we can not guess OS, and guess what needs to match this amd GPU.
    my guess is not using amd/ati web site for clean official no virus drivers, that?
    is that a typo, 355?
    amd shows zero hits, do you mean M335?
    wow if yes.
    not even told if it is card in desktop or a laptop.
    M335 is R5 Card is this a card?

    here is the offical page, AMD.
    for R5 M335 cards.
    for w7 to 10

    next time tell what PC you have, wow.
    and what OS you run
    OS matter, big time both 32 bit or 64bit.
    many new cards do not support 32bit at all.
    so... there is that.

    no PC told , laptop told later is it?, what maker? what model PC, and is that bad external HDD still connected? we can not see your PC.
    the hDD is bad.
    that makes data , the OS and yes driver now corrupted,.
    HDD bad a little , all go worse day by day.
    that what ALL HDD do, every one once the smart test fails that is the DATA DOOMED< LAMP GLOWING (virtual)

    what you fail to know is , run Diagnostics first.
    what you do and did not do , is go to
    your unstated PC makers web site, and on there forum, ask how to run diagnostics (theirs) costs not a penny.

    nor rear the manual on your PC , and go to chapter called DIAGNOSTICs.

    millions of folks now with Laptops have a bad HDD. nothing new there, and replaced by techs world wide, about 5 year life span , less dropping PC hard.

    NO PC told , NO PC told , NO PC told

    you have 14 posts some are even the same.
    your HDD is bad, we test the HDD first.
    a bad HDD causes corrupted OS and Drives and all data on PC.
    the horror of all this is not one of 14 posts you made tells us what PC this is,
    not even a photo of your PC. posted.

    we run this free/safe HDD smart tester first.

    there is no software on earth that repairs bad hDD, do not listen to derps claiming such drivel.
    only HUMANS replace bad hardware, ok?
    and stop posted new post for one Bad PC
    this forum is not TREADED< so add 1 one post
    best it is click comments on your last post not THIS post. see?

    NO PC on earth runs right with bad hdd
    or dead bad RTC coin cell battery.(boot fails)

    so true but OP never once told what PC nor what OS they run, windows sure.
    its infected, he runs drivers that are BOGUS to the max, that is so common, and not ever necessary.
    the Panacea is what PC is this, non told.
    my wild guess is GPU card in desktop
    but who knows with him typing and GPU that does not exist 355.
    no PC , no OS , no card told. = zero panacea.
    nor source of bad drivers, told no links presented, and easy to see they are bogus me.

I have a Singer 160. Was sewing fine then suddenly all I get after three stitches is a C6 error telling me the upper thread is broken but it isn't. I've rethreaded multiple times both upper/lower.

Remove the thread completely from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread. If the error continues, there may be a piece of thread stuck somewhere in the thread pathway.

The thread cutter on my janome 7700 is stuck and clacking, then gives me an #4 error and locks up the machine can I fix it?

I have the 8200. It’s because of fluff/thread caught in the cogs that drive the thread cutter. If you slide off your accessory tray, take off your needle plate and from the rear of free arm section remove the 2 screws there (see photo) The plastic top cover will I click and lift/slide off (gently). If you look from the end under the metal plate you can see 2 plastic cogs (wish I’d taken a photo) - the smaller black one will be jammed with fluff or thread. I turned if gently with my screw driver and brushed and scrubbed with a pipe cleaner every time I turned it. Lots of fluff came out. Plugged it in and turned it on .. it worked as normal. Good luck.
