A Guide to the AGP ILLEGALLY REPROGRAMMED Blue Screen of Death Error

The “AGP ILLEGALLY REPROGRAMMED” BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error is an indication of the unauthorized reprogramming of the Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP), and usually appears when there is a bug in the installed driver for a video device. It causes the computer to shutdown automatically, which results in the loss of unsaved data.

The appearance of this BSOD error may also be due to a corrupted or outdated driver, or the installation of a driver that is incompatible with the system. It may also be due to the installation of an untested or unsigned video driver, or a faulty application.

This BSOD error is also known as “AGP_ILLEGALLY_REPROGRAMMED” and “Windows STOP 0x00000106“. This fatal error or Stop message is shown on the screen immediately after system shutdown.
