Android emulators, due to their specifics, cannot work perfectly on computers and laptops. Crashes happen, although not very often. Therefore, a common question is: “What to do if BlueStacks gives an error?”. In this article, we will look at several common problems and how to solve them.
It is quite difficult to describe all the variety of possible bugs in BlueStacks, and even more so to find the cause of their occurrence. However, there are several errors that are especially “popular” on the Web, which we cannot get around. For ease of perception, we will divide the further narrative into several logical blocks.
The problem occurs when trying to download the application in the Play Store. And it happens because of the blocking of software activity by antivirus. In this case, you need to add BlueStacks to the list of exceptions and check the overall performance of the security software. If this doesn’t work, try restarting your computer. Well, the last resort is a complete reinstall.
Often using the standard functionality of BlueStacks does not give error 495. At its core, it resembles the previous case, but it also occurs during manual application updates. So the solutions are the same.
Error 25000 in BlueStacks occurs when installing a popular emulator. The error text says that the system has detected problems with the video card. Most likely, the matter is the lack of drivers for it or their old versions. Accordingly, you need to install or update them. First, find out your graphics card model:
- Open dxdiag via the Run dialog box or search in Start. Confirm the launch if required.
- Go to Display and see the card model.
Now find the latest drivers for it on the developer’s website and install them. Then restart your computer and repeat the procedure.
