  1. Hi, like many other people I am getting a BSOD problem saying IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE_AREA. I have seen you solve some of these problems, and am hoping you can diagnose mine.

    My computer setup:
    AMD Athlon 2500+
    Ati Radeon 9600XT
    512 Ram Corsair value Select
    M7NCD Pro Biostar Motherboard Nforce2

    At first, I thought it was a ram problem, but through switching slots, switching ram, etc. I am almost 100% sure it is NOT a ram problem.
    I now think it is either a Motherboard or a CPU problem, i was hoping you could find out which one it is.
    It also may be a PSU problem, but I have been using this same stuff for over a year, and I dont understand why my PSU wouldnt be enough to power my system now.

    From reading other threads, I assume you need my dumps, I dont know where to find these and since I am on another computer, I will get on the nonworking one and try to find out where the dumps are, ill post them in a few.
    Thanks

    Hey, I cannot even access my other computer. After windows starts, I either get BSOD and it restarts, or the monitor just goes dead.

    Ok, I am on the faulty computer and I some of the files from Windows/minidump and put them in a few zips. There are quite a few of those files in the minidump folder, I uploaded 10 minidumps in total, some old some new.

    Thanks

    I believe that it is memory issue. One minidump is inaccessible and one minidump with one bit corruption.

    Suggestion
    1 Downclock the RAM
    2 Check BIOS setting and make sure that your RAM is compatible to the motherboard

    PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e)
    Typically caused by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists (ie: calling
    MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc). If a kernel debugger is
    available get the stack trace.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 0000008f, The free or zeroed page listhead is corrupt
    Arg2: 0001a0d7, new page
    Arg3: 0000a0d7, old page
    Arg4: 00000000, 0

    Debugging Details:
    ------------------
    PFN_PAGE_SINGLE_BIT_ERROR: Bugcheck args 2 and 3 differ by a bit, its hardware error.
    MEMORY_CORRUPTOR: ONE_BIT
    CUSTOMER_CRASH_COUNT: 13
    DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: COMMON_SYSTEM_FAULT
    BUGCHECK_STR: 0x4E

    LAST_CONTROL_TRANSFER: from 8051bf6b to 805266db

    Could it be the actual ram slots on the motherboard causing the problem? I know the ram works because I am using it right now posting from a different computer.

    Maybe the memory slot or your RAM is not compatible to the motherboard.

    I double checked to see if the ram was compatible, it was.

    Right now I have 2 sticks of 256mb ram. If I stick 1 stick in, it works fine. If I stick both in, it goes to BSOD. So it has led me to believe that the actual slot ON the motherboard is causing this problem. Do you agree or no??


    I also tested with 1 stick of 512mb ram which is also compatible, and it goes to BSOD too..
