How To Fix Opencl.dll Errors in Windows 10

Reader Question:
“Hi Wally, I’m having this driver issue in Windows 10. I’m wondering if Microsoft will release something to fix this error or not. I reinstalled Windows, and the problem stopped for a while but then it started showing opencl.dll errors again.” – Cody J., United Kingdom

Before addressing any computer issue, I always recommend scanning and repairing any underlying problems affecting your PC health and performance:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (WinThruster for Win 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP and 2000 – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.

Setting up weekly (or daily) automatic scans will help prevent system problems and keep your PC running fast and trouble-free.

Wally’s Answer: Windows 10 is used by millions of people every day. It is a very stable operating system thanks to the hard work put forth by Microsoft as well as third-party hardware and driver manufacturers.

However, there are times when things don’t work as expected. Let’s dive right into fixing the Opencl.dll error.


The Opencl.dll error appears on a blue screen and the computer restarts.

This error is usually caused by driver-related issues.


Here are some ways to fix the Opencl.dll error:

Update Software Giving This Error

Do you see this error when trying to run a specific program on Windows? If yes, then please try uninstalling and then reinstalling that software to fix this problem.

Update Device Drivers

Updating device drivers should fix this problem Especially if your computer has an Nvidia graphics card in it.

You can do this by going to your computer manufacturer’s website and downloading the drivers from there. Just select your computer’s model number, and the correct version of Windows as well. You can also use DriverDoc to help download and install drivers for you in case you need help.

Problem Persists Despite Updating Drivers

If the problem persists even after updating the drivers, then there is a chance that these errors were caused by automatic driver updates in Windows 10. You can check to see if this is the case by starting Windows 10 in Safe Mode.

If Windows starts normally, then you should uninstall a driver e.g.  audio, video. After that, restart the computer and see if this fixed the problem. If it does, then please disable that particular update from Windows 10 update using the software in this link.

Is Your PC Healthy?

I always recommend to my readers to regularly use a trusted registry cleaner and optimizer such as WinThruster or CCleaner. Many problems that you encounter can be attributed to a corrupt and bloated registry.

Happy Computing! :)
