  • Hi,


    Before moving on, I would like to confirm that if there are any programs installed before the issue occurs.


    This error can be caused by the Runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries are missing or software problem.


    If the issue is caused by Runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries, you can reinstall it to resolve the problem. Please download it via the following link:


    Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86)


    If the issue still persists after installing above package, the issue should be a software problem. I suggest you boot in Clean Boot to check whether it is a software conflict issue. If not, it is still recommended to address the problem with manufacturer support. Thank you for your understanding.
