I had been receiving a BSOD saying "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". As suggested here http://www.geekstogo...a...=5&t=143456
I updated my BIOS and no longer receive the BSOD. For other reasons, I reinstalled my operating system. I am now receiving a different BSOD.
It says:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Technical Information
*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xAADB77FC)
*** afd.sys - Address AADB7FC base at - AADAA000, datestamp 41107eb5

Beginning dump of physical memory


When I reboot, I receive a window stating that "Windows has recovered from a serious error."

I am running Windows XP.

What does this mean? How can I fix it? Does it relate to the previous BSOD?

After doing some research, I found out that these errors may be caused by bad RAM. As a diagnostic, I switched the positions of my RAM cards. After rebooting, I received errors that my paging file was too small. My system also is running much slower. After rebooting again, everything seems fine although I have not changed anything. Do I need new RAM?

You can download to a floppy a little application called memtest86 that will diagnose your memory, just boot from the floppy to run it. How much memory and hard drive do you have?

I have 512 MB of RAM. I have a 70 gig hard drive. I don't have a floppy drive.
