BSOD page fault in non paged area, fltmgr.sys or other .sys

  1. Hi, its good to see all the activity in these forums. I built this computer for my girlfriends mom. seemed to be working for awhile then kept get BSODs so I RMAd the ram and it worked for awhile. I checked the timing on the ram in the bios, it wasnt what the manufacture suggested 4-4-4-12. the motherboard likes to set it up higher than that and not give it as much voltage. the mobo only goes to 2.0v but the ram is supposed to be 2.2v. I was thinking maybe the mobo doesn't like that typed of ram or something, but it adds up, so im not sure.

    heres the specs:
    Mobo:ECS G33T-M2 LGA 775 Intel G33 Micro ATX
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Conroe 2.33GHz
    RAM: Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 Dual Channel
    GPU: XFX PVT73GUGF3 GeForce 7600GT
    HDD: SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD501LJ 500GB 7200 RPM
    Other:SABRENT CRW-UINB 65-in-1 USB 2.0
    Case: Rosewill R5717 SL ATX - PSU: 450W

    Im attaching 10 minidumps aswell. I think the mobo has some weird compatability issue that keeps messing up that RAM, but any help is appreciated. Thanks

    Nope, it's just good ol' Norton Antivirus causing mischief.
    Please remove Norton Antivirus, from Add/Remove Programs (can be in 3 places in there)

    i had trouble uninstalling that becuase it was in the background still but not loading. I did a system restore to a few months back to before i installed it on there. right now its runnin on 1 stick of ram and seems to be no problem :knocks on wood: and no nortons on there. i will put in the other stick of ram and see if it restarts and put minidump up here. the minidump 5 should be the latest ones.

    I think we found the fault :)

    Inside the 2 MiniDumps:
    SPTD.SYS is part of daemon tools, a cd/dvd emulation tool, that allows you to mount iso images as virtual drives.
    Or Alcohol burning software

    Can be resolved by Uninstalling this virtual software
    Firmware upgrade on either your Cdrom or Motherboard
    If your system has some problems with SPTD installation you can do as follows:

    If your OS is already running then go to step 2 directly.
    If you cannot boot your PC at all then start from step 1.

    1. Boot in safe mode and press ESC key when you see on bottom line of display:
    "Press ESC to cancel loading SPTD.sys". This will abort loading of SPTD layer.

    2. Open registry editor (run regedit) and browse to the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\sptd
    Change the value "Start" (DWORD) to 4 (i.e. disabled).
    [To re-enable SPTD service change the "Start" value back to 0.]

    3. Reboot again in normal mode and check if your issue is solved.

    Note that you have to change the Start value in registry back to 0 in order to get SPTD layer working again and Daemon Tools, too (see #2).

    You can also download sptdinst.exe ( here ( for your Windows version) (i.e. sptdinst_x86 for 32bit Windows, spdtinst_x64 for 64bit Windows) and execute "sptdinst remove", reboot to complete de-installation.

    If you are unable to boot into safe mode even if you pressed ESC when prompted, boot with your Windows cd into recovery console, log on to your Windows installation (requires Administrator password), change dir (cd) to Windows\System32\Drivers directory, and rename sptd.sys and dtscsi.sys. Reboot to check if your issue is solved. Note that this will probably NOT work in Vista!
    Note that you have to rename sptd.sys back after the problem causing the crash is solved in order to get Daemon Tools working.

    well there isnt any deamon tools since i went back to the restore point, so i followed the steps about the regedit. after that it runs in windows for abit and keeps giving BSODs, i attached the latest minidumps. do you think if i reinstalled windows it would solve the problem?

    Inside the 5 MiniDumps:
    Says driver issue on your Realtek nic (network) driver
    Also states IRQ corruptions on your memory and drivers.

    Please update (or remove and re-install) your network drivers
    I'd advise to go to Start-->Run--> sfc /scannow
    To check all Windows files are intact

    I did that and still kept getting diff blue screens. so i backed theyre files up and reinstalled windows to start fresh. it was workin for awhile but then kept getting blue screen and now i cant get into window with out a blue screen. i tried safe mode and was able to get to the user logon screen but cant move the mouse. im assuming the motherboard has some bugs in it and/or its going bad. any other ideas?

    So you would still need to get the latest drivers from your manufactures website
    Also you should do all Windows Security updates
