How to Fix Error Code 0xC004C4AE on Your PC

Error Code 0xC004C4AE - What is it?

Activation errors in Windows 10 can interfere with your ability to fully use the system. When Error Code 0xC004C4AE appears on your computer, you may see a message that shows that the validation process has been stalled due to binaries that appear to have been tampered with.  

While the text of this message may sound intimidating to people who are not familiar with the inner workings of the Windows 10 system, the basic meaning of the error message is that something has been introduced to the system that is not natively supported in Windows 10. During the Activation process, Windows checks to ensure that all of the Windows elements that are currently on the computer are valid and authentic to the Windows system. Usually, this particular error code refers to a language package that has been downloaded into the system using an outside application, which the Windows 10 operating system does not support.

If you are unsure of how to use a backup to revert your changes or are not comfortable completing this step on your own, contact a certified Windows technician to assist you in the process. 

Method 2:  Revert to an Earlier System to Remove the Language Pack 

If you are unable to restore your system using a backup, the other option to resolve Error Code 0xC004C4AE is to halt your installation of Windows 10 and go back to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, from which you will be able to remove the language pack in question. Once the offending language pack has been completely removed from your computer, the Windows 10 Activation process should be able to proceed normally. 

Several versions of windows don’t support language packages, so the best way to prevent this error from occurring is to avoid using any kind of third-party tool to install additional languages onto your Windows system.

Fix Error 30053-4 or 30053-39, language pack
As you know, the Office Language Packs need to be installed right after installing Office. It also has to be on the correct version of Office so if any of these conditions are not met, you will most likely get error codes 30053-4 or 30053-39 when you install a language pack in Microsoft Office. If you are currently facing this error, read on as this post will help you fix the problem. Here’s the full context of the error message:
“Something went wrong, Sorry, installation cannot continue because no compatible office products are detected.”
When you have to work on two different languages, that’s where the language packs come in handy. You might have to work on one language but when it comes to proofreading or help, you need another language. Note that some language accessory packs offer partial localization which is why some parts of the Office might show the default language. If you are using Office 365 or Office 2019, 2016, 2013, or 2010, you need to go to the language accessory pack page from office.com and select your language. Once you see the download link, click on it to start downloading the pack. It includes the display in the chosen language, proofing tools for the selected language, as well as the Help in the selected language. Once the installation is complete, follow each one of the given options below to configure the language accessory pack properly.

Option 1 – Select Editing and Proofing language

  • You need to open any Office program and navigate to File > Options > Language.
  • From there, you need to make sure that the language you want to use is in the list under the Choose Editing Languages section.
  • After that, you can add or remove the language that Office uses for editing and proofing tools.

Option 2 – Configure the Display and Help languages

In this option, you can change the default display and help languages for all the Office applications so whatever you choose will be used for all the buttons, menus, and support of all the programs. After you select the language, restart all the Office applications to apply the changes made successfully. On the other hand, if you are using Office volume license versions, note that only an administrator account can install this if you are using the Volume License version of Microsoft Office 2016. You have to download the ISO image of the language packs, language interface packs, and the proofing tools from the VLSC or Volume Licensing Service Center. This process can be quite complicated so you might have to go to the docs.microsoft.com page to be guided accordingly. After you installed everything correctly, the error code 30053-4 or 30053-39 should now be fixed.

How to Fix Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error

Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error - What is it?

Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error is a BSOD (blue screen of death) error. Also, know as a 0x0000007A Stop error. This bug check indicates that the requested page of kernel data from the paging file failed to be read into memory. In simple words, this means that Windows has trouble reading from the memory. This can apply to both kinds of memory: stored memory on your hard drive and also the dynamic memory in your RAM. The Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error turns your computer screen all blue, stops the program being executed, and sometimes even leads to abrupt system shut down.

Error Causes

Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error may occur due to numerous reasons. The exact cause of this error can easily be found by going through the code displayed in the parameter of 0x00000007A. Let’s take a look at Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error parameter codes and the underlying causes of its occurrence:
  • 0xC0000009A- This parameter code triggers missing nonpaged pool resources
  • 0xC0000009C- This represents the installed hard disk drive has bad sectors.
  • 0xC0000000E- This indicates a hardware failure or an incorrect drive configuration

Further Information and Manual Repair

No matter what the cause for Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error may be, it is advisable to fix it immediately as blue screen of death error codes are considered to be critical PC errors that can cause serious damages and even result in valuable data loss. Here are a couple of ways to repair this issue on your system:

1. Call the ‘Chkdsk’ (check disk) command on your system.

Windows XP, Vista, and 7 users can call this command, by pressing Windows Key +F and type in ‘chkdsk’ and run. However, you can’t run it while actively using Windows but you can always schedule it to start automatically the next time your computer turns on. Wrap up what you need and then reboot. Chkdsk disk checking process can take a long time, especially on large and slow hard drives. To run this command on Windows 8, open Windows search by pressing Windows Key+ F and then type ‘cmd’. Then right-click on the command prompt and choose the option ‘Run as Administrator’. To continue with the disk checking process, here you will be prompted to provide your administrator authentication. Once you insert the administrator authentication, type the command ‘Chkdsk C:/f/r/x” where the letter ‘C’ indicates the drive you want to examine and repair. Run it to scan for Kernel_Data_Inpage_Errors on your system. Chkdsk command will detect and repair errors on the hard drive and then automatically reboot.

Limitations to this Solution:

‘Chkdsk’ is a value-adding inbuilt disk checking tool in PC new Window versions; nonetheless, this command has certain limitations. It is time-consuming. You may have to wait for a long time for it to scan your system. Also when disk check is running, you will have to stop all other activities on your system. Furthermore, Chkdsk does not scan and fix all registry errors and other PC-related errors. So, you can’t be 100% sure that it will resolve all the Kernel_Data_Inpage_Errors on your PC.
