Ok here is the problem coder I am getting. When I boot up my Computer I get the blue screen of death. It says

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

***STOP:0X00000050(0X89FF018,0X00000000,0X84C2367,0X00000000)

***CLFS.SYS_ADDRESS 84C2C367 BASE AT 84C2B000, DATESTAMP 4549acbc


I have tried using my recovery disks and it keeps going to that blue screan of death. I have tried booting in to Safe Mode with the Comand prompt and it still goes to the blue screan. I am sure it isn't the motherbord because I have a differant hard drive in the computer and was able to get that working. So How can I fix this situation?

Make and model of the system?
Have you changed anything on it recently?
Do you remember anything that stands out in your memory recently?

I suspect hard drive issue.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD, and make the CD bootable.

NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, unfortunately, you're out of luck, because Toshiba doesn't provide any diagnostic tool.

For Toshiba drives, use the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test (DFT). It works just fine on the Toshiba drives.

Run Seagate diagnostics.

Did that and the hard drive checks out and is good. Pressed Controle Alt Delete and let it reboot like it told me to and still got the blue screen

If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.
If you have only one RAM stick installed...
...run memtest: http://www.techspot....topic62524.html

Hummmm but why would the same mother bord and the samd ram work with another hard drive????????? I do not think it is a hard wear problem. I think it is a soft wear thing. After all if I swaped hadrives and put the system on it from fresh and it worked wouldn't that tell you it is eathr a hard drive problem or a soft wear proble. furthermore I tested the hard drive by using the Seagate tools and it checks out to be ok. So how do I get around this blue screan and restore my system.

I don't understand your argument.

Even though I didn't think it is a memory problem I tried out your idea and it didn't work. I have 2 memory strips took one out then moved 1 from one position to the other then tried it with the other one and still got the blue screan each time

Has this computer been jarred, dropped, hit or kicked?

Just wondering. You sometimes get a message like that when a computer is violectly moved while booting. If so buy a new hard drive

No the computer hasnt been dropped or any thing like that. Pluss I ran the Segate tools and it shows that the hard drive is good. So as I said I think it is a soft wear problem. The Question is how to get around this message and fix the CLFS.SYS error I am getting.
