Hello everybody! I am a technical person myself, and do low level computer service and repair on the side for others, but I have come up against a problem that I am at a complete loss to fix. It has happened on my own desktop computer, and I am getting really frustrated trying to fix it! When I turn on the computer, it goes through POST fine, then I see the Windows XP loading screen. It loads for a moment, then I get a BSOD that appears and disappears so quickly you can't read it. I disabled automatic restart, and this is the information I am given: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED-AREA Technical Information: *** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xBCFF001C, 0x00000001, 0x8051D055, 0x00000002) This happens no matter what I do. The same thing happens if I try to boot normally, in safe mode, last known good config, etc. I heard that RAM can be the culprit, so I bought a new stick (because I had two originally and wanted to be sure), pulled out the originals, and installed the new one with the same results. I even installed to hard drive in another computer with a completely different configuration and I get the exact same errors. That would seem to me to point toward a problem with either the Hard Drive itself, or a corruption in the OS. I know that there are other threads devoted to this error, but in perusing them, it would appear that mine is quite different. Most of them, for example, can boot into safe mode, which I can't. I would really appreciate any help you can give me! Thanks in advance for your time! -N.
