    Both errors are 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

    One just said hardware and the other gave nothing definitive. Are you using onboard sound? The reason I ask ios because the Microsoft audio driver wdmaud.sys was noted in one of your dumps.

    hi licence27kill

    Your problem seems to be driver related. Try updating all your device drivers from the manufacturer website. Like route44 said, there's no definitive answer as to which driver is causing your problem so trial and error is the only way unfortunately (this time it was Ntfs.sys). Also, if you haven't already, test each stick of RAM individually with Memtest. If you keep getting BSODs, keep posting your minidumps so we can try and isolate the driver.

    Your error is another 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

    The minidump file gave nothing definitive. But it did say Pool_Corruption which means the driver pool has corrupted drivers/software.

    Have you scanned for infections?

    That is an excellent antivirus. Okay, do the following:

    1. Go to your Run Box in your Start Menu > type in ChkDsk > click Okay. This test moves fast but when it gets to Stage 2 tell us if it states it is recovering lost files.

    2.Go to Seagate's websilte (they bought out Maxtor) and download their free harddrive diagnostic utility called SeaTools. Run the tests in this order: S.M.A.R.T., Short DST, and the Long DST. Let all these tests, especially the Long DST run their full course. This will take time especially the Long but it is well worth it.

    * Get back to us with your results.

    Your first error is 0xC2: BAD_POOL_CALLER
    A kernel-mode process or driver incorrectly attempted to perform memory operations. Typically, a faulty driver or buggy software causes this.

    The driver cited is NDIS.sys and this is a core system driver. Normally Windows drivers are too general to be of much help, but with your error it may be more meaningful

    The NDIS library (Network Driver Interface Specification) is contained in
    ndis.sys. It is a collection of routines that applications can invoke to
    perform network-related operations.
    Ndis.sys is an integral part of the
    kernel and it must match other kernel components to work properly.

    It is very possible your NIC card drivers need to be updated or it could even be defective.


    The second error is 0x4E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
    This indicates that the memory management Page File Number list is corrupted. Can be caused by corrupt physical RAM, or by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists.

    In fact, your dump specifically cited your cause is corrupted memory. This issue will cause all kinds of error codes so the first thing I would do is run memtest on your RAM. See link: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic62524.html

    bro.. i aready have a memtest..

    What program was it? Often they are no more than malware in disguise. Have you uninstalled it?

    im so disappointed with what had happend..

    and i wana bring memtest86 everytime i buy a memory module..

    thanks all techspot staff..

    i really appreciate your help..

    this thread will only be the one i always update ..

    So it was memory after all... That 0x4E error is a a very strong indicator of such.

    Trust me, even the best memory makers ship faulty RAM. Corsair isn't exempt as you well know. Thanks for getting back to us.
