I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Problem:

Everything was running fine until yesterday, when my PC crashed with the BSOD giving me the "IRQL not less or equal" error. I ignored it and carried on- which resulted in the computer crashing with "Memory management" blues whenever I started something that was not the browser (It later started crashing on browser start too).

I first thought it was the temperature - Memtest95 and GPUtemp said otherwise.

So I started testing the RAM (taking one DIMM out) with Memtest86- It passed 4 cycles, so I shut the PC down and put the other DIMM in.

When I turned the PC on again, there was no signal sent to my screen, and none to my keyboard (and the HDD light on the front of the case did not start blinking like usual). The fans were running, so I figured something might be wrong with the DIMMs I put in. I removed the graphics card and plugged the screen into the motherboard.

Now the screen gets a signal, background lighting starts up, and then it shuts down to hibernation again. This repeats itself until the machine is shut down manually.

I got no idea what to do.

I can not post the Minidump folder, since the PC can't start and I did not back it up. Sorry.

Thank you for your help.

Firt of all, excuse for my english. I can read, but I cannot write. I am live in Brazil.

My computer is showing a blue screen when I play Fifa Soccer 2005 and other games (I had install the same games in other computer, and works well). Sometimes the information of blue screen change. Another day it is showing:

I update my sound drive and the problem was resolved. But, in the next day, the blue screens appears again, but with another information:

Page fault in nonpaged area

I update my video drive and the problem don't resolved. I feel that after the update the blue screen appear more fast.

So, what I must to do?

Can anyone help me?

Answer:'Page Fault in nonpaged Area" AND "Driver Irql not less or equal"

Maybe faulty memory

Hi,

The culprit is faulty memory. You can run memtest to stress the ram. If memtest reports the ram is faulty, ram is bad. However Memtest is not a perfect tool to test the memory as some faulty ram can pass memtest.

Suggestion
1. Check the temperature of the CPU and make sure that it is not overheat (ie temperature < 60C)
Make sure that the CPU fan works properly
2. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot. Reseat video card as well.
3. Downclock the ram. Check to default setting if you video card is overclocked.
4. Clean the dust inside the computer case
5. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard
6. Check the bios setting about memory timing and make sure that it is on
For example : DIMM1 and DIMM2 do not have the same timing.
DIMM1: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.0-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz)
DIMM2: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
DIMM3: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
7. Make sure that your PSU have adequate power to drive all the hardware including USB devices
8. Run chkdsk /r at command prompt
9. Run 3DMark 2005 to test your video card
10. Upgrade BIOS

If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.
If you have only one memory stick, replace the ram

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

I've installed Windows 7 recently on a new computer and I've been getting occasional random BSODs since, always 0x00000050 page fault in non paged area, and it never mentions any file. The first few crashes were while surfing internet on Maxthon browser. I switched to Chrome since and haven't had any BSODs until today. Most of the time I'm playing computer games or poker and sometimes surfing poker forums, and haven't had problems with either, but today I was surfing internet and came upon a PDF file and BSOD happened 3-4 mins later. I'm fairly sure all crashes happened while surfing the net but not 100% sure.

FWIW I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and it came out OK. Also ran a GPU diagnostic, which came out with errors but mentioned that errors are possible since it's not designed for GPUs with so much memory.

I'd really appreciate any help here, thx

Answer:BSOD "page fault in non-paged area" after waking fro sleep

Please uninstall the Western Digital software. The wdcsam64.sys driver dates from 2008 and is known to cause BSOD's

Please update your video drivers (both Intel and AMD) from the manufacturer's website. It appears that you've rolled them back and they're now from a period before Win8.1 was released.

Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

The drivers that are struckout don't have updates available (AFAIK).
DO NOT delete them, just leave them be.

If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Upgrade to 15063.0 and everything is fine on a Toshiba Laptop that has been running Windows 10 since July, 2016 upgrade from Windows 8.1 flawlessly.

Further update to 15063.138 (KB4015583) produces BSOD'S when trying to run any one of a number of speed tests or Earthcam (Variety of live cameras around the world). Get message "Page fault in non-paged area"). Have tried install 3 times with same result. Have uninstalled Flash Player and reinstalled with no help. Have uninstalled Display Adapter and reinstalled with no help. Below are the files you require from the latest event.

I could roll back again but I would like to keep the full Creator Update if possible.

I suggest doing a roll back to see if that resolves the problem. If it does, then make sure you have a good, full image backup then apply the 138 update again. Meanwhile I'll take a look at the dump(s) you uploaded.

Edit: Still can't do anything useful with the dump as Microsoft has not uploaded the symbols for any of the 15063 builds yet.

Recently had my work laptop upgraded to Windows 7 from XP. Everything worked fine for one week. Then I started getting the BSOD error " Bad pool header". My computer will repeatedly shut down to protect windows. I notified my IT department and they believe that I corrupted the hard drive, as I have local admin rights. they provided me with a loaner computer and loaded my backup system on to this laptop. Worked great for a week and then again started getting " bad pool header and new error "page fault in non paged area. They believe I again corrupted the hard drive. The only software I installed is a program I use for work "Form Max" which other users have been using successfully in Windows 7. I used the DM log and have attached the dump files.

Hello, i've been having this problem for a week now, tried to fix it but no luck what so ever. So i got tired and i am looking for your assistance on this matter.
Every time I play Aion online, in about 10-30mins i get a blue screen saying "REFERENCE BY POINTER" or "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL", tried many methods that were stated on the forums of different sites but no luck... that is why i am attaching my BSOD information and hoping for you assistance. Thank you in advance.
PS: When I play Aion, and the PC restarts (caused by BSOD) most of the time the minidump isn't created and sometimes it doesn't go into the BSOD it just restarts, but i know the problem is the BSOD.

Answer:BSOD playing Aion, "REFERENCE BY POINTER" and "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL"

No DMPS included in upload try this method.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Windows has frequently been crashing on me lately, the same "Page Fault in Non Paged Area" error on every bsod. The error happened once when I had 512MB (2x256MB DDR333, CL 2.5) of HP RAM in the system and opened a DivX file, but since I have replaced that RAM with a full GB (2x512MB DDR400, CL 2.5) of Corsair, the error has become much more frequent. The computer has crashed while playing an .mp3 on Winamp, while sitting there doing nothing at all, and twice in Pinball while exiting from full screen mode. The most recent error was this morning, the second Pinball crash, specifically.

Naturally I contacted Corsair's tech support last week, when all but the most recent crash had already occurred, and naturally Corsair's tech support passed the buck and said my hard drive was to blame.

I defragmented the hard drive five days ago and ran the Error Checker on reboot. The Error Checker found nothing, but then, it was only on for one second or so--I don't know if it's supposed to be that fast; I remember Scandisk taking quite a bit longer on older versions of windows. Still, it didn't find anything "wrong."

Hi, I am having a problem with my newer computer, I just got this rig a few months ago and never had a problem until last Thursday. It Blue Screened on me while I was installing ARC GIS 10.1. From then on it randomly crashes. (I have previously installed ARC GIS 10 and never had a problem.)

I keep things updated (windows and drivers) and I do think windows forced through an update earlier that day. I un installed ARC GIS 10.1 and the windows update, didn't make any difference. I have also ran the Windows Mem test and Auslogic BoostSpeed/ Registry repair. I keep getting "Bad Pool Header" and "Page In Nonpage Area" and I can't seem to find something that triggers it. So far it hasn't crashed in Safe Mode without network access. I tried it once with access and it crashed. Currently have windows checking the drives for errors ( I have 4).

I think I attached the proper dump files. This is my work computer so this is kind of causing a big problem. Thanks in advanced for the help!!

Attached are my dump files. A little bit of a background on what's going on, a couple months ago, had a faulty ram problem, no blue screen, comp just wouldn't turn on, finally got new ram 3 weeks ago. Everything has been running fine. Then I come home to a "page fault in non paged area" loop.

I can get into safe mode fine. I get an error trying to retrieve minidump files though. I've followed the instructions in the dump files thread, and it does say recording dump files when the BSOD is happening and the latest .dmp file has been included in the zip. Let me know if I'm missing anything.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

Hi

I started having this BSOD after upgrading to win 8 and it is still persist after upgrade to 8.1.

it happens every time I wake the system from sleep.

Can someone please help me to pinpoint what triggering it?

Answer:Win8.1 BSOD "PAGE FALUT IN NON PAGED AREA" after sleep

Your BIOS dates from 2008. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

With a BIOS that's this old, it's very likely that the system may not be compatible with Win8 or Win8.1. I have a Lenovo x61t tablet that is in this area and I wasn't able to get it to work reliably with Win8 even when I was visiting Microsoft last April. In my case the solution was to go back to Win7.

Note - something is causing my system to hang when processing your memory dumps.
I suspect a corrupted dump file, but will have to do them one-by-one in order to figure that out.
Will post back when I'm done.

I love the Dev Preview so far. We were getting on so well. And then the (reimagine) blue screen of death shows up, with it's sad face. I thought I might have said something to upset it. "Shhh, it's okay winona, shhh" I said, stroking the screen comfortingly. And then she reboots. And BSOD's. Repeat X times till I also have a sad face on.

The error I'm getting is "Page Error in Non-Paged Area". This started after a BSOD relating to it falling idle for roughly 25 minutes (I've heard of other people getting this, but not my problem after). The system this is running on is an AMD Turion 64 X2 @ 2.1GHz, 3Gb DDR2 RAM, ATI HD3200, 250GB hdd. My standard issue test bed, since my Asus broke I've been using this in the mean time.

I've taken the HDD out and whacked it into my server (cause I'm just that cool), the file system is intact, ChkDsk doesn't find any integrity issues, and there's no bad sectors (allegedly). On top of this, the boot sector also seems in tact. I've done a test of both my memory modules, taking one out and testing the other on it's own - the error still occurs, so I'm led to assume a driver or something is causing the issue.

The error I'm getting is "Page Error in Non-Paged Area". This started after a BSOD relating to it falling idle for roughly 25 minutes (I've heard of other people getting this, but not my problem after). The system this is running on is an AMD Turion 64 X2 @ 2.1GHz, 3Gb DDR2 RAM, ATI HD3200, 250GB hdd. My standard issue test bed, since my Asus broke I've been using this in the mean time.

I've taken the HDD out and whacked it into my server (cause I'm just that cool), the file system is intact, ChkDsk doesn't find any integrity issues, and there's no bad sectors (allegedly). On top of this, the boot sector also seems in tact. I've done a test of both my memory modules, taking one out and testing the other on it's own - the error still occurs, so I'm led to assume a driver or something is causing the issue.

Ive recently started getting random BSODs "PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA" stop 0x00000050. It happens frequently at random and usually while the PC is sat doing nothing strangely enough. they can happen every 5 mins after loading windows up, or not for a few hours while the PC is sitting idle.

To fix ive tried: unplugging all but my OS HDD, disconnecting every USB device besides the wireless mouse/keyboard, taking all but one stick of RAM out, running disk check for HDD errors, memory diagnostic check, system restore but i had no restore points other than one yesterday which was pointless, checking event manager for any clues (but im not sure what to look for in particular though i am getting a hell of alot of capI2 warning/errors, about 6 every few minutes) running Everest CPU, memory, HDD stress tests for about an hour, driver verifier came back without a problem and these last two to tests i really thought would create a BSOD giving me an opportunity to narrow down the problem, but no nothing happened until my PC was sat idle an hour later and bang another one out of knowhere...

I've gone through 10 of your dumps and each one points to memory corruption.

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.

So I bought a brand new computer, everything is new. Clean Windows 7 64bit installation and all, but recently I started getting this Bluescreen, from what I would say out of nowhere as my computer ran just fine for a month. I have tried to remove memory sticks, Harddrives, CD-ROM. I also bought a brand new harddrive for a different problem (Which I solved) a week ago, so all hardware is only 1 month old.

I ran CHKDSK, found no problems, checked memory timings (Somewhat, I'm not really a brainiac when it comes to doing tests and looking at numbers) and ran a memory test which found no problems with my current memory stick.

My bluescreens occurr kinda random, 5-15 minutes apart, so I can start the computer just fine, everything works like it should but then all of a sudden BSOD with the messege "Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area". Never seen that one before and I've tried a lot, just now I uninstalled daemon tools, but when i started up again it BSOD 5 mins in.

Now on the other hand, I've managed to keep the computer running for maybe 30 minutes without any problem.

Here's a link of a screenshot I took on my Bluescreen Viewer report.

Hello,
New owner of an xps 13 2015 since a couple of weeks ago, I'm becoming more doubtful about it's stability. First I had issues with the audio driver (which seem to be fixed for the time being), but now I get the feared blue screen. It came shipped with Windows 10 installed.
I'm able to reproduce this error when torrent downloading is taking place (downloading ubuntu via qbittorent). Once I start the torrent client and the download begins, I get a couple seconds or a couple minutes, and then the BSOD - "Page fault in nonpaged area" appears and shuts the computer down.
I've been looking arqound and have followed a couple tips from around the net, but to no avail. I checked my disk for errors via 'disk management', and just ran 'sfc /scannow' but nothing interesting pops up.
I had a look at the minidumps and turns out 'ntoskrnl.exe' is the culprit. However I don't know what to do to fix this. 
I would greatly appreciate some assistance, thanks!

Answer:XPS 13 - BSOD "Page fault in nonpaged area" ntoskrnl.exe

I'm seeing the same thing on my XPS-13.  I've rebuilt it from scratch several times but the same problem crops up within a few days.  On the most recent rebuild I've added NOTHING other than default Windows 10 and subsequent updates.  No antivirus, no Office 2016, no Hyper-V, no machine specific drivers from Dell, nothing.  So far so good but it's only been a few hours.  I'd be interested to hear the answer.

Hello,

I recently finished building a PC for my girlfriend, mostly for gaming and internet browsing. Here are the specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
Mobo: Asus f1a55 M LX Plus
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 631
RAM: 4GB Crucial Ballistix 1333mhz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6850
HDD: 500GB WD 5400rpm
PSU: CiT 500w

The BSODs seem to occur only when gaming and even then it seems rather infrequent and random. It was happening a lot more but I re-installed GPU drivers which seemed to stop the crashing until it happened again tonight.

Initially the PC had an old GPU in (an ASUS 4350) this was for a couple of weeks until we could afford to buy a new graphics card. I think the PC was running fine then although obviously she wasn't gaming hardly at all with that GPU. Also the original graphics card I bought had to be sent back because it was faulty. We received a new one, it went into the machine and seemed to work fine until the PC began to frequently BSOD with this error message.

So far I have only ran a chkdsk, but there was no problems found, my next plan was to run memtest+

I have looked around online but it seems that this kind of BSOD can be quite unique to each PC. So I thought i would post here and see if I could get any help or advice
first.

Thanks in advance

My computer has been recently (past 2 weeks) having BSODs. It will occur at some random point and I have not found anything specific that triggers it so it must be something I am not able to understand. I would appreciate some help in finding and fixing the problem. It's quite frustrating having my computer reboot randomly after a BSOD. The computer is:

x64 Win7 Ultimate
3 years old
Full retail version of OS
OS installation is as old as the computer

I have attached the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder but I couldn't find the performance report as the forum sticky showed.

Thanks for taking the time to look at this.

Answer:BSOD "Page fault in nonpaged area"

Hmm, I may be reading it wrong, but it looks like either bad RAM or CPU. I can't ascertain exactly which of the two.

We can start by doing a couple hardware tests, as followed:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Large FFTs; overnight (9+ hours)

Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. If you can get the system to crash during high load while logging, that is preferable. Send the logs to us.

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

Answer:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

And i posted here that thinking my problem was solved but unfortunately i was wrong.

Please if you have any tips on this one let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I have a chart in an Excel spreadsheet, and it has several "series" in it. Some of the series are charted as "lines", and some are "areas" that fill in the entire background of anything from 0 to the value I have entered.

I have one particular series that is showing up as an "area" but I want it to be drawn as a "line" instead, so it DOESN'T fill in the area below it. I currently have the "background" as "none", but now I have a line from the last value down to "0", and that's what I want to avoid...

Thanks in advance!

Can I access my Netscape WebMail or Hotmail accounts through Thunderbird?

No. Netscape WebMail and Hotmail use proprietary protocols. To access WebMail directly through an e-mail client requires you to use Netscape 6+ with AIM; to do so with Hotmail requires either Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express. Of course, you can access your WebMail account on the Web at http://webmail.netscape.com/, or Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com/.

Hey guys. This morning I got a really strange error code. When I tryed to update Steam on my PC, this error message popped up;

"The instruction at "0x00172058" referenced memory at "0x00d1004". The memory could not be "read".

Click OK to terminate the program.

Lately, I have'nt been able to install WoW either, I install it all the way to 100% and then when I try to launch it, I obviously have to re-download all the patches but it prompts me that I have to install it again, even though it is all there.

Tryed downloading the full game digitally off of wow-europe.com too, I click run to get it started, nothing happens and then this message pops up.

"The instruction at "0x00182058" referenced memory at "0x0f070014". The memory could not be "read".

Click OK to terminate the program.

I don't know what's up with it. My freind told me to run a CHKDSK /R to see if there was anything wrong with my drive and it ran smoothly, although I must say it took about an hour or so.

So, that was complete, tryed to do it again and I still kept getting these error messages. But I saw something on my desktop that wasn't there previously. It is an error log. Here is the error log;

Hello all,
I've been running into a serious problem as soon as I upgraded to windows 10 on my computer. My cousin did it, so I don't really know what he did, I wish I did it my own... Anyways, I had big BSOD problems few weeks ago when I was either working, watching videos or gaming, it seemed to happen randomly with different CPU activity. I also lost my start menu icon, the clock was not working anymore, same for Cortana and basically the whole bar down there. I got tired of it and decided to reset the PC to it's original state and start fresh, which worked perfectly, and it was quite simple.
Two weeks later, the problem appeared again ( I think I should have disable the updates and make a backup ). It's pretty much out of control right now, freezing all the time, giving me either a BSOD or just freezing every 20 to 30 minutes of use; this is so frustrating, not able to do anything. I've been working on that for 2 days now and I can't find a fix, I think I tried pretty much everything and nothing is working. The worst is that I tried to reset the computer (either removing everything or keeping my files) and it says that it "ran into a problem and was cancelled, nothing was changed".

Please, any help would be amazing, I'm working at the other side of the planet right now and my computer is my lifeline; I need to use it a lot. I don't mind using the "nuclear option" against it which would be to reinstall windows and everything, but I can't even do that.... Read more

I've been struggling with sporadic game crash issues for half a year.
Not sure if it's hardware related.

I posted here a few weeks back and got some help, but it didn't seem to fix the issue outright/thoroughly.

So installed windows 10 clean, and they went away for a long time (2 weeks, which I think is a record).
Another one just occurred though, so that's why I'm back. Hopefully someone can some insight.
(Note: I ran memtest86: for 7 hours without error, gpu and cpu temps are good
(not sure about the time at crash, but every time I check them, during stress tests even, they are normal).

I had been running the latest crimson driver 16.5.3, and had bios 1206 before it crashed. Thought one may have been the cause so updated both of them...so now I've got crimson 16.6.1 and 1805 bios (fixes stability).
This time, within a few minutes after exiting out of the game, with steam still running in the background, I got the IRQL BSOD while navigating file explorer.

I've no idea where to look to find exactly what driver is needed for each piece of hardware. I've spent literally hours scouring the forums, but most all the semi-related hits are dated and/or have different hardware.

Hey guys, for the last week, I've been getting the BSoD. I've fixed it before, but this time, I just can't figure it out. The error message says "Page fault in non-paged area".

-Windows 7 Ultimate Edition(64 Bit)
-3 gigs of ram
-AMD Athalon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+
-465 Gig Hard Drive

Error code is: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFFA7FF233E890, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFFA800233E809, 0x0000000000000007)
 

Answer:Blue Screen of Death"Page Fault in nonpaged Area"

If it's just a week old a System Restore would be the best thing to try for a quick fix.

Were there any installations this week, perhaps Windows updates? Is there a pattern to the BSODs, such as gaming, scanning or heavy CPU or GPU usage?

You can open the Control Panel's Performance Information and Tools > Advanced > Reliability Monitor (or run perfmon /reliabilty) to see a an indexed log of both installs, other changes and errors. Might be a clue there.

I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder. *this assumes 'c' is your boot drive, if it is not, subsitute accordingly
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

This might point us to a non Microsoft driver causing the error, if one exists for it.

If you do not see any minidumps, be sure you are not using any cache cleaner such as CCleaner. Also run sysdm.cpl and select Advanced > Startup and Recovery. Make sure "small memory dump" is the one chosen under "write debugging information" and the location should be %systemroot%\minidump

Hello!
so I basically just recently got a new laptop and started using it about a week ago but past few days (2-3) i got 3 BSOD already all saying "Driver irql not less or equal." I'm not sure what's causing it but it's making me a bit worried. I really hope i did the dump file thing right. (I have windows 8 btw)

Also, if you don't mind just making your answers a bit more simple and concise because I really don't know much about laptops or these things, basically a noob sorry.

Thanks in advance for your help!

UPDATE:
So I heard there's a problem with a chipset of some sort?

So just tried updating Intel Corporation - Storage Controller - Intel(R) 7 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller, it has been trying to update since a week ago apparently. For some reason, it keeps failing.
And then I tried going to synaptics drivers, to see if it that will help, but a previous version of the Synaptics Touchpad has already been installed. Should I uninstall to install again from Drivers | Synaptics?

Or i do have some sort of feeling it's because of McAfee because I've looked at forums with the same BSOD error as me and a few said to delete McAfee but I dont understand why and if it applies to myself.

Make sure you have the latest Java installed well, then head on over to this link:

Intel? Driver Update Utility

Let it scan and most likely it will show you updates to install. I am not completely sure (a little rusty doing this but that's ok hah), but perhaps the SMB driver is part of the Intel Chipset Update Utility. (I think so.)

In any case, we at the site and you together will fix this up. Good luck with the above for now.

I do recommend using the McAfee uninstall utility they have on offer, in Safe Mode is best - if issues persist after the above. Then, install Microsoft Security Essentials either permanently or temporarily until you have it all sorted out.

My system has been unstable for a long time now, and I am trying to slowly trouble shoot it. The main problem is that there seems to be no specific reason why my computer crashes all the time. some times it crashes at start, other times it will crash in the middle of a game (I am a heavy gamer). The time between crashes is random at best. It often crashes a lot within a few days and then is fine for a few weeks, rinse and repeat. most times it crashes when I am surfing the web ( I use Firefox) or I am switching between two windows. I run dual monitors off of a single 480 for productivity, but disable the second when I game.

important note: For a long time I had issues with AMD's FUEL service. when I googled the problem, most people with nividia cards experienced no ill effects when turning it off. I have an error about AOD drivers in the event logs. not sure what that is all about.

Hey everyone,

I am new to this forum, so please excuse me any layman propensities I might exhibit here.

So, I am lucky (at least that was my initial thought) owner of a brand new Asus Zenbook UX32LA, 256 SSD GB, 8GB Ram netbook with win8/64bit OS. After cofiguring the computer I ve been experiencing multiple BSODs pointing most probably to memory problems. It's really annoying, as the netbook is new and I tend to get at least to BSODs per day for the last 10 days just during net-browsing. I looked up the graphic drivers if they are up-to-date, but the problem still persists.

I would appreciate any help on this.

Attached is the rar file.

Have a great day!

Answer:multiple BSOD - mostly "IRQL driver not less or equal"

The reports are incomplete. Please rerun the data collection app and let it run for at least 15 minutes (or until the app itself says that it's done). Then zip it up and upload it. In particular, I'm looking for the MSINFO32.nfo and systeminfo.txt reports.

Out of 16 memory dumps there were 8 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized. i5 and i7 processors can be "auto-overclocked" by using Intel's TurboBoost feature. If so, it's safe to disregard this caution.

Hi All,

First time posting on this forum, please let me know if you need additional information. About a week ago my laptop (Asus, Windows 7, 64 bit) started to get a BSOD on shutdown. The shutdown starts as normal, then when it gets to the part where it goes to something similar to the start up screen, it quickly gives a BSOD. After the BSOD it restarts, then i'm able to shut down as normal at the start screen, no BSOD. This has happened every time i've tried shutting down for the past week. Today I tried to restore the computer to an earlier time, but got a BSOD there as well and the restoration failed.

I've attached the zip file requested in the instructions. Any help is appreciated.

Hello Together,

i have a BSOD when i use torrent (does not matter which type).
The main message in the BSOD is " "Driver IRQL not less or Equal""
I know this is a really common BSOD but still i have no idea how to fix it (also i am a noob with PC's)

Further on i am using an HP ProBook 6560b, which is my work Laptop, (all admin rights are on me)
the only problem which it brings is that i can not really change the security software (McAfee).

attached the SF diagnostic file.

Answer:What is "Page Fault in Nonpaged Area" error?

9 more replies
Relevance 156.31%

Hi, thanks so much in advance for looking into this problem for me.
Basically, I have had a number of crashes over the past months. I'd say about 1 per month. The first time must have been 5-6 months ago. I had NOT just installed any new programs, so was stunned. Typically, I'd be running Firefox for a while (hours) and click onto some link (a link that I used before or use regularly and used after, nothing fancy/unknown/evil) and then I'd get a blue screen with the above message ("Page Fault in Unpaged Area"). The blue screen is full of information which I can never read cause the computer re-boots after a few seconds. All I ever remember is that it says something about a serious problem .... (I can't figure out how to disable the automatic re-boot by going to MyComputer->properties, there doesn't seem to be an option for this).
Basically, the computer starts up again and all is well. Which is why I was not overly worried so far. But really, I need to sort this out cause I have lost data this way before. My first thought (as a computer layman) was that this could be a virus/malware-type problem, but no bugs were ever detected during all the scans that I have run since this happened for the first time.

I just found this link:
http://www.techsupportforum.com/f10/...ea-337474.html

Windows 7 Home Premium

I would provide a screenshot (or three) however that is at the crux of my problem - I should perhaps say my current problem...now, with "7" (I am beginning to tire RAPIDLY of 7, much more quickly than I did with either XP, or Vista).

PROBLEM: When I attempt to "Save As" a document (Notepad, for instance), or even a Paint image, I get a window/page/screen/whatever, that has no "Buttons" ... no button to "Save", no button to "Cancel". Simply NO BUTTONS???

I had this problem the other night, and we "faked" or cheated our way through it, by using the Enter (Return?) Key to advance the cursor (cursor??) to where we wanted to be (well, we "hoped" we were "there", anyway, since we could not "see" what button or drop-down dialog box was selected or highlighted).

It's almost as if I had a "Resolution" problem, whereby the resolution is set too low (say, 800 x 600), things are too big to be seen/won't FIT on the page. However, my resolution is set to the "Recommended" 1366 x 768.

Please help...this Netbook would be a WHOLE LOT easier to throw against a wall than my desktops ever were . . .

Thanks in advance,
glenn . . .
PS, Hoping I was/am clear here...under the drop-down boxes of "File Name" and "Save as Type", there is nothing to select - not "Save" or "OK" or "Cancel" ... NOTHING????... Read more

Answer:No "Buttons" to "Save" or "Cancel" in Dialog Boxes WIN7

Hi,

Type dpi into the Search box and choose "Make text smaller or larger" at the top of the search result list. In the window that opens see what it is set to. You want it at 100% rather than 125% or 150%. So if higher than 100% change it back to 100%. Hit Apply. You will need to reboot. See if that helps.

Ok so I'm using a custom visual style made by another user however I don't really like the buttons used that I mentioned above. The creator states it is acceptable to change the theme to however you like as long as you don't redistribute it anywhere.

Ok so I opened up the .msstyles file (using Restorator) located in the theme folder of this VS. I went into the images directory and located what seems to be the images used for the buttons. Intuitively, it seems like it would make sense to replace those images with different ones (perhaps from another visual style) and it should change them. However, would this actually work? Could the theme get messed up in some other way (like proportions or something if the new button images are smaller)? I don't know of any other way to change them that would be easy.

But I did run into another problem. For some visual styles I can't even locate those buttons in the images directory. Where else would they be?

Answer:Changing the "minimize" "maximize" and "close" buttons of a theme

Use Windows Style Builder to do that...

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

Please follow the instructions in the below link:

and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****

After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:

If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

Most likely a bug with your Windows phone, not Windows 10. Microsoft is not supporting the Lumia line that well. It does help when you ask for help, that you also post the model of the phone, what OS version it is running, along with screenshots or logs of what is wrong.

You should first try resetting the router by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, still holding down the button, unplug the router for 30 seconds, power back up while still holding down the button for 30 more seconds.

After that it's required that you go into the routers settings and make sure the wireless is set up correctly, you need to add SSID "name of network" set up a password to connect, then choose the security and encryption, WPA2 and AES encryption tends to work best with Windows 7 drivers.

After that check your wireless profile for this connection by going to the Network and Sharing center, look left for "Manage wireless connections" and use the same settings that you used for the router.

If you are still having problems please post the ipconfig/all from this machine and I'll have a look at it.

Hello,
since a couple of days my system who was pretty solid until now, started to randomly display BSOD with "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL" as cause. My system configuration is as following:

-Windows 7 x64 retail (installed on 5 January 2011) previous installation (also a windows 7 x64) was wiped using [email protected] killdisk utility.

-Motherboard,cpu, powersupply,ram and hard drives are 2 years and 6 months old. Sound card is 1 month old and video card is 10 months old.

CPU: Intel core 2 quad Q9450 2,66Ghz
MotherBoard: Asus P5Q-E
Power supply: LC POWER Arkangel 850w

I get no error with memory tests such as: windows memory diagnostics and memtest86, and no problems also with cpu stress tests. The error seem to happen randomly, but I noticed it seems related to tasks that require the use of a video card, for example, the oldest of the two BSOD happened as soon as I clicked on a video embedded in facebook, while the other one whilst playing a videogame. Attached you will find the outputs of: SysInternals AutoRuns, Perfmon and BSOD file collection app. Thanks in advance for the time and consideration.

It's a build up pc.

Current OS: Windows 7 64-bit
8Gb ram
Age of system: Less than a week.

The pc was running windows 7 32-bit just for 1 day, but since it has 8Gb ram I installed Windows 7 64-bit.

The BSOD did not happen at least when 32-bit system was running.

I'm suspicious that the first time I got this BSOD was just after installing AVG antivirus, but I'm not really sure, I can't remember.

The BSOD occurs randomly while doing anything like web browsing, messenger, playing music, etc. It happens to 45 minutes to 3 hours.

I've updated all drivers and downloaded and installed Service pack 1.

NOTE: The trap frame does not contain all registers.
Some register values may be zeroed or incorrect.

So we can see that the "Netr28x.sys" which is the driver for your RALINK RT3290 802.11bgn Wireless Adapter Network Driver is referencing the memory address in BLUE. Let's check it -

So I just put together an Athlon 64 tower and today I recieved the Windows XP 64 Bit install CD. While loading the files it needs to run the install program I get a blue page error that says Page Fault In NonPaged Area. What does this mean? The Stop error is " ***STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFF09FD5D6BEA7, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF8000122A2C5, 0x0000000000000007)" SO if anyone has any clue as to what may be preventing me fom instaling the XP 64 OS please help me out! THANK YOU!

Answer:"Page Fault in nonpaged area"

Have you got the clock speed for the Athlon 64 set correctly in BIOS? Is the ram the correct speed for the prcoessor? Have you tried using another stick of RAM?

Here's a MSKB that relates :

Hi everyone,
Aplogies if this is in the wrong area.

Can someone please advice how to resolve the above BSOD error? It happens about 3 mins after Ive logged into XP (sp2). There has been no new software installed recently and the machine has been working fine up until last night. Would this error point to a problem with my RAM module? I dont want to go through the whole rebuild process if all I need to do is change the RAM. What do you think the best steps would be to take if a RAM change doesnt fix the problem?

Any advice would be greatly apprciated.

Many thanks
 

Answer:"Page fault in Nonpaged area"

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Download and run the Memtest86+ programme from www.memtest.org

Let it run for at least seven passes. If you don`t have a floppy drive, there is an iso version that you can burn to cd, and then boot from that.

This will tell you if you`ve got a ram problem.

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

Hi all,

I'm new here, been browsing this forum for a while now and impressed! So I thought I would join, and hopefully help some people out But to start I have my own problem...

It Think it might be problem with the Symantec Endpoint Protection client. But I'm gonna try the RAM first.

I keep getting a BSOD with the error "page fault in non page area" aswell it says "SRTSPL C64.SYS" from a Windows 7 Professional x64 laptop. Just before I'm able to log-in. I am able to boot to Safe mode.

Had a look at the event viewer, with a few things I've found:
Event 1001, Bugchecker - "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck"
Event 4 SRTSP - "Error loading virus definitions" thought this might be linked in with what was on the BSOD.

I'm unable to upload all the dump files as one is 400Mbs....
So what I've done already:

My first bet is that it's a RAM error, but I ran MEMtest86 for around 30 minutes and it didn't say I had an error..
Also tried a system restore with no success.
Tried most of the advanced options with no success (apart from Safe mode)
Tried SFC /scannow but didn't find anything.
Cleaned out the keyboard with compressed air, just no luck... So now I'm waiting for a RAM stick to hopefully resolve the problem.

Any help?

Thanks
Damian

Answer:BSOD just before log-in "Page Fault in non page area"

The cause here is your Symantec Endpoint protection security suit. You should either remove it or upgrade to the latest build/version.
Run MemTest86+ for at least 7 Passes & post back with your results.

My Windows Vista Compac laptop has been crashing for the last 5 days with the blue wording about if this is the first time you have seen this message...  I have done system restore to the furthest time before any problem, have done all types of anti-malware scans (CCScan, Anti-Malware Bytes, Avasti, Searh & Destroy, etc.) and it starts up normally, and about 5 minutes into any session, the message appears in blue again. Any advice would be appreciated.

"Appcrash", and "General Fault" when loading various warez. I have been getting these often. Some adobe software. Older games like Diablo II. The list goes on and on, I just don't remember which software.
