Windows is one of the most popular operating systems on the planet right now, and Microsoft has spent decades perfecting it to make it into what it is today. However, it still isn’t without its problems.
In this article, we’re looking at the video scheduler internal error, its causes and how you can fix the error.
What causes Video Scheduler Internal error?
While the error itself is somewhat cryptic, it’s most likely caused by changes in software/hardware, a malware or virus infection, corrupted registry settings or incorrect changes in the registry, an overclocked GPU, outdated GPU drivers, or some corruption of system files.
In most cases, when you encounter the error, your PC will become unresponsive, and chances are you will see a BSOD, which makes it all the more important to get the issue resolved as soon as possible.

How to fix the Video Scheduler Internal error?
Here are a few solutions you can try out to fix the Video Scheduler Internal error.
Run the Check Disk utility
The BSOD can very well be a sign of your boot drive failing to perform as it should. Try running the check disk utility to check whether or not your storage drives are, in fact, functional.
Uninstall recently installed programs
Next up on the list is removing any programs you have installed recently. Often a program installed with admin privileges can cause conflicts with Windows’ functioning leading to a BSOD or other less severe errors.
Run an SFC scan
Corrupt files are the number one reason why your PC might be behaving weirdly. Here’s how you can get rid of them and potentially resolve your issue.
Step 1: Press Windows Key + S to bring up the Cortana/Search box and search for Powershell. Open Windows Powershell from the search results.
Step 2: Type sfc /scannow to scan your system for issues.
Step 3: If the SFC scan finds any problem, use the following command to resolve them.
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
Restart your PC, and the error should’ve been resolved. If that doesn’t help, you can also run a DISM scan to fix any other errors by using this guide.
Update your GPU drivers
Outdated GPU drivers can also cause this issue in particular. While you should update all your drivers, take special care of your display drivers if you run into an error like this.
Step 1: Right-click Start and select Device Manager from the menu.
Step 2: Under Display Adaptors, find your graphics card’s name, right-click on it and click on Update Drivers.
Step 3: Click on Search automatically for drivers. Windows will then automatically look for and download the latest drivers for your particular GPU.
While this should help resolve the error, in case it doesn’t, click Uninstall device and restart your PC to force Windows to install the required drivers. You can then update them later. Alternatively, you can also remove your GPU and reinsert it if you can.
Update your OS
The first thing to do in such situations is to make sure your OS is up to date. Developers usually diagnose these issues based on insider reports or feedback from customers and issue fixes or patches in the form of updates. Check to make sure you’ve got the latest update installed on your system.
