  1. I need help !!!

    I have AMD Phenom Quad Core Processor & ASUS AM2+ mother board. I have two hard disks of 500 GB & 160 GB. 500 GB Hard disk has Windows XP SP3 installed on it and 160 GB Hard disk has Windows 7 installed on it.

    Today morning when i tried to boot my computer with windows 7 I got an error message with (BSOD) PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA and BSOD appeared. Whwn I tried to boot my computer with the other hard disk having windows XP the message appeared.

    I tried booting the computer in debug mode, repair mode, safe mode, last known good configuration but nothing worked for both the hard disks.

    Finally i removed the cables of hard disk having windows 7 installed on it and tried to boot with windows XP SP3. Everything worked fine and my computer did boot with no problems.

    Now when i connect the cables of hard disk with windows 7 installed on it nothing works and i end up with BSOD. Nothing is working.

    Please some one help Me to fix this error.

    Thanks

    Windows 7 may be installed on a failed hard drive. Is this drive older than 4 years? Is it by chance a Western Digital drive?

    Take it easy... :mad: I'm glad it is a Seagate drive. There must be something, some hardware setting or driver in your computer, that is not compatible with Windows 7. Try changing (upping) the memory voltage a bit

    How can I do that ?

    I mean I thnk I can do it with the help of BIOS Settings but I need to be more careful as i know. So if you can let me know the complete procedure about how and how much do i need to increase.

    In any case do you have any method by which I can retrieve some data of that hard drive .

    Thanks and Regards

    What motherboard do you have? The memory is probably running around 1.8 volts... You only need to raise it to 1.82v or so. In the bios, set the setting to manual then select memory voltage. Raise it 2 steps from where it was...

    "In any case do you have any method by which I can retrieve some data of that hard drive?..."

    If you can see the Windows 7 hard drive in My Computer inside Winndows XP, you can access the files that way. Both the XP drive and the Windows 7 drive should be formatted NTFS
