How To Fix StreamCI.dll Errors
The first step to fixing StreamCI errors is to repair any potentially damaged drivers you have on your system. Although this may sound difficult, the good news is that it’s actually very easy to do. The first step is to click Start > Control Panel > Device Manager. This will then load up a Window with all the devices that are on your PC. You should click onto the audio / speaker devices, right click and then select “Uninstall”. This will temporarily remove the driver from your PC, and should automatically reload a fresh copy when you click off that screen. After doing that, it’s then recommended that you manually replace any StreamCI errors which may be on your system. This can be done by downloading a new copy of the file from the Internet and then installing it onto your computer – replacing the old & damaged one.
The second step to fixing these errors is to use a program called a “registry cleaner” to scan through your computer and fix any of the registry errors which may also be leading to this error. A registry cleaner is a software program which will scan through your computer and repair any of the problems that Windows has inside, allowing your computer to “remember” all the settings it has when it loads up. Although the registry is continually being used to help load up a large number of programs on your PC, it’s continually being saved incorrectly – leading to a large number of errors to be formed. To fix this problem, it’s recommended you download a registry cleaner from the Internet and install it on your Pc, allowing Windows to run smoother again.
