Page Fault in Non-Paged Area

  1. Apologises if this question has been asked 1000s of times already.

    Recently when trying to connect to the internet (using a wired connection) my pc has been shutting down with the "Page Fault in Non Paged Area" message.
    This has happened about 3/10 times when connecting.

    I recently tried to connect wirelessly with a BT Router but as soon as i try to connect i get the blue screen and message 100% of the time.

    I've ran numerous virus checkers (AVG) and spyware checkers (AVG, Spyware Doctor) and have used CCleaner.

    Today i reinstalled Windows XP Home but have still got the same problem.

    I am now back using my wired connection which is still working 70% of the time.

    Any help would be great!


    I have ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic and it found no errors.

    use memtest 86+ booted from a floppy.
    also zip up your last 3-4 minidumps as an attachment for an analysis.
