Hello everyone, I am having a BSOD issue when I attempt to log into Windows 7 64-bit. At first I could get to the desktop for a few moments before I received a "Paging and a non-paging area" BSOD (can't remember the exact wording). Now, after my attempts to figure out whats going on, I get the BSOD right as "Welcome" is displayed. Sometimes I also get a "Attempted to write to read-only memory".

I am able to boot into safe mode, but not diagnostics mode (normal mode with only essential drivers). I have run malware-bytes, CHKDSK, and Scandisk.

Any other ideas?

:welcome: Amphoterik

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the MB, add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

Can you also tell us how much free space is/was available on the hard drive/partition that has the operating system on it.

OK, here is what I have

-Custom desktop
-i5 Sandybridge
-16gb ram
-120gb SSD primary drive, roughly 30gb free space
-Do not know mobo, been a few years
-Dual nVidia 560's
-Don't know PSU brand or model, but it was a nice one when I bought it.

Sorry for the vagueness. I could discover more, but my system is currently running memtest (no errors yet)

Thanks

Actually, if my memory serves me correctly, the MB is an Asus "Sabertooth". I don't remember the model number though.

EDIT: Memtest returned 0 errors.

Thanks for the update Amphoterik :thumbsup:

Memtest needs to be run 4 or 5 times to be anywhere near conclusive and this can take several hours, how many passes of memtest were allowed to complete.

Check the size of the pagefile, as you have 16GB of Ram you want a pagefile of 24GB or so.
