Memtest86 executes indefinitely. The pass counter increments each time its finished testing and then restarts testing.
As u have no errors u can stop.

I saw another Microsoft article for, STOP: 0x00000050 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA , this one about it occuring during setup.
The article says it can be caused by any type of memory, including "Video Memory". Now, memtest86 test all types of memory except "Video Memory".
Try putting another Video Card and then see if Windows Starts.
If WinXP does'nt start hopefully the Repair function will now work.
And if the repair works, follow the steps in this MS article.

ok im trying another video card and i can actually type in recover console now, but after the second line of what that windows suppot page tells you to type in, it says "access is denied" and then i try the enxt line and it goes to a blue screen that says IRQL.....etc. i think i can do a fresh install but its so annoying cuz then everything will be gone and my games wont work and stuff. can i install it on another partition or something?

If no more PAGE FAULTS are occuring. I guess it was a faulty Video Card in the first place.
I guess u need a new one.
Dont u have a warranty on this one?
