Blue Screen error Pagefault In Nonpage Area (help please)

By MistaRip
Feb 7, 2006
  1. I keep getting this blue screen about every hour. Sometimes less.
    I havent installed any new hardware or software. I've ran ccleaner, tuneup utilities 2006, and diskeeper.

    I still get it. Can somebody please help? I've attached my minidump. I don't know how to read it. Thanks

    Turn off your PC and pull out the RAM, just install half your RAM and test that out. If it does the same, shutdown the system again. Remove the RAM and try using the RAM you had taken out. Test and see what happens? If nothing happens then you know you got bad RAM.

    You should really run a diagnosic program running a dos bootdisc CD and test out things like RAM, VIDEO, CPU

    run memtest86.
    use your floppy drive. if you don't have one, install one.contrary to popular notion, they're still a requirement.

    One miniump is insufficient to determine the culprit. You must zip 5 to 6 minidumps and attach the zip file here. Your minidumps shows that it is faulty rama as the bucket id is 0x50_BADMEMREF_nt!ObpRemoveObjectRoutine+cb and this is the sigh of faulty ram.

    Invalid system memory was referenced. This cannot be protected by try-except,
    it must be protected by a Probe. Typically the address is just plain bad or it
    is pointing at freed memory.
    Arg1: bad0b148, memory referenced.
    Arg2: 00000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
    Arg3: 8056c77b, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
    Arg4: 00000000, (reserved)

    Debugging Details:
    Could not read faulting driver name

    ok, i attached a zip with 5 minidumps.

    i tried 6 but it went over 100kb.

    so it's possible that both my mem cards are bad all of a sudden? :(

    Vsdatant.sys,which is a Zonealarm file.Either check for an update or remove to see if problem goes away.

    Hi MistaRip,

    I believe that the culprit is faulty ram. One minidump may be crashed by ZA and your timestamp of your version of ZA is 43798224. I search google and there has no hit relating to this version has known bug. Anyway you can un-install ZA and install sygate firewall for problem isolation.

    thanks for the help, everybody.

    the problem was zonealarm

    i uninstalled it and haven't had the blue screen ever since

    i cant believe it. oh well.. i just use the firewall on netlimiter 2 and it works fine

    tedster, i did the memtest overnight and got no errors


    i got this error code exactly as well for my bluescreen, i also had been having problems with the internet locking up during the night. apparently zone alarm was the culprit. i installed kerio (though i dislike its negative effect on the performance of my computer in comparison) it doesnt have any problems anymore and has not bluescreened since.
