Hi All

Have had to revert to posting a problem that i cannot solve.... :tazz:

I am continuingly getting a blue screen....

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

I have done a clean install of windows XP...loaded all the latest Drivers and updates for all my hardware and windows...

I have run diagnostic software on my memory...hard-drive...and system...with no problems.

I know the problem is a hardware issue or a driver issue...but how do i find it??

Hope someone out there can help me....

My memory and hard-drive are ok...error testing software... ;)
Have tried the repair function in XP... ;)
Have tried a complete fresh install of Win XP... :)
Have tried removing hardware..network card...e.t.c. :)

all the best

Post your system specs as it will assist folks in being able to help you. You were able to do a complete clean install and then on boot up you get the bsod? Can you boot into the safe mode? Have you tried booting up with just the motherobard, ram, one hd and one cd drive, and floppy? If this a system that worked before? Have you made hardware changes? More info will help others help you.

Hi all

I know this is a hard error to correct...
and i know it involves a faulty driver...or hardware...
I am running a clean install of windows XP Pro...complete with updates and latest driver...running on only the hardware that is needed...that worked 6 months ago with no problem...have run many diagnostic software on all hardware and windows with no error...so has me stumped...

anyone with ideas.... :tazz:

There is a link here from the Microsoft website that refers to this error. Just to quote some of it :

This Stop message has four parameters:

1. Memory address that caused the fault.
2. Type of access (0x00000000 = read operation, 0x00000001 = write operation).
3. If not zero, the instruction address that referenced the address in parameter 0x00000001.
4. This parameter is reserved (set aside for future use).

Other options I would try is if you can either swap test the RAM you have or if it is 2 sticks of RAM, test the machine with only one to see if you can narrow it down to which stick is causing the problem.

Just out of curiousity, which programs did you use to test the RAM with? A couple of programs I have found to be good are GoldMemory and the Microsoft Memory Tester.

Hope this helps.

If you go to event log and view the red x relating the event, you can right click on properties, and view detail of the problem. You can send a report to M$ and view their knowledge base to see of you can get any additional clues. One often overlooked cause of random reboots is the power supply. What are the output ratings (on the sticker displayed on the side of the psu). What brand of psu do you have?
