Run-time error ’13’: Type mismatch

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi, I’m a Windows Vista user and I have the following problem. Every time I start (or restart) my machine, following message appears on the screen:


Run-time error ‘13’: Type mismatch

Here is also a screenshot of the message.

When I click on the close button or on the OK button, the message disappears and doesn’t appear again till the next start or restart. The error message started appearing couple of months ago and I cannot connect its constant appearance to any particular action or event. It doesn’t cause any significant problems, but it slows up the start of the computer. Is it an indication of a serious problem? Anyway, I want just to get rid of it.

Thanks in advance for helping!

This error only comes out during restart if your have a problem with the files pertaining to shutting down, restarting, or putting your pc on stand by mode. It could be that there are some files corrupted on your pc or some files are missing for the commands that involves shut down, restart or stand by.

Try repairing your operating system or do a system restore to fix the problem. Or if you want, you can reformat your PC so that it will have a fresh install operating system and it will become much faster during start up and shutting or restarting your PC.

Runtime errors don't stop your windows working completely but they prevent it from working correctly. To fix the runtime errors, you need to fix registry errors first of all. Follow the below steps to fix these errors – 

1. Click Start 

2. Open System Tools

3. Click System Restore.

4. Click Next > Ok. 

This will fix all the registry errors in your system, which are the main cause for the runtime errors. After doing this, if the problem still persists, then you can install CCleaner from internet. After installing CCleaner on your system, run it. 
It will fix all the problems, which was left by the system restoring option. Hope it helps.
