There are a couple of things that you can do and the first is to go to the event viewer and see what is posted there close to the time that your getting this error code. The second thing is to go to the action center and run the troubleshooter and that will bring up any issues that are going on.
control panel / system and security / action center
An error code is not something you need to download, it's a code number that helps identify what might be causing the issue. However, it's also helpful to know what task or application you were using/performing when the error occurred, so please post this information (on this thread please, not a new one).
