  1. I had this bsod with the message,
    page_fault_in_nonpaged_area
    stop: 0x00000000 (0xffffffff, 0x00000000, 0xffffffff, 0x00000000)

    that is all the information there was, except for the usual explanation, there was not referred to any address.

    Unfortunately this problem has many potential causes and therefore is really a process of elimination.

    Take a look at the following page Windows Stop Messages

    Bugcheck x'50' may be caused by hardware or software. 80% of the bugcheck x'50' is related to software error at third party software such as dsiplay card driver, anti-virus or firewall. Most users cannot interpret blue screen bugcheck parameters. You have the provide more information so the windows experts can help you.

    You only provide one bugcheck information which is insufficient. Whenever windows crash a system event 1001 is written
    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001. Copy the content all system event 1001 and paste it back here

    If you want to know the failing module, disable auto reboot.
    Procedure to disable auto restart
    Right click My Computer>Properties>Advanced>Startup and Recovery Settings and uncheck Automatically Restart.

    Note: the failing module is the accurate, as it assumes the last failing instruction address is the culprit. 50% of the failing module is ntoskrnl or win32k.sys and they are the victim. Use microssft winddg to analyse the minidump and it uses stack trace to determine the most probable failing module name.

    go into bios and disable cpc override for your memory. cpc override can cause said error.

    BLUE SCREEN fault in non paged area

    Hi there i logged on this forum cos i found the cause to a problem
    When i searched the net i found this site
    And there are 18 pages about this problem but no real cure
    The post has been clossed so i cant post the solution there
    Perhaps a moderator can merge this info there
    Especialy for all those who will search fault in non paged area on google
    The first 2 articles you get are from this site

    I think i have found it
    At least on my system i found the cause and fixed it

    The errors i had before
    -Some letters not showing up (showing up)=[ sh..w.ng u.]
    -irol not less or equal
    -fault in non paged area
    -PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
    -ntfs.sys error
    -NT Authority/System restarts after 1 munute

    It's not a powersuply error
    It's not a wrong driver error
    IT'S A RAM PROBLEM

    Remove one of your rar dimms

    I had all these problems aswell
    But after i removed one of my 2 identical rars
    The problems are all gone now

    So this could well be the problem for other folks aswell

    I used google and saw different references to your problem. None of them mentioned ram. Most of them mentioned 3rd party drivers.
    One way to handle this, if you cant find a better way, would be to remove all excess hardware from your system and uninstall or disable the drivers for them. If this stops your BSOD problem then add one item back in at a time until you find the culprit.
    I would first start with any usb items you might be using.
    By the way, did you check in device mgr and see if there are any errors there? Sorry, gotta ask.

    I got my 2 new DIMMS in 3 days ago
    Bought a new pc so i could get new ones

    My pc was working OK with 1 dimm inside
    But when i placed the second one inside
    Then all the errors came up

    I can now say this, being 100% shure
    Ram could be a cause if you get those errors
    Since i got the new dimms in
    Not 1 error and i had it pushed to the max and running 2 days non-stop aswell

    So getting 2 new identical dimms fixed my problem for 100%
    The pc is running like a rocket now aswell much faster

    For 6 days then back to the old problem

    Abrupt restarts! and the crazy system crash/reboot error - PLEASE HELP!

    TO: CPC2004
    ...or to anyone who knows about the error codes

    Greetings friends,

    After searching the net for this problem for long hours, I have found this thread and finally saw someone who can read these technical error codes. From what I've gathered so far from the abundant crowd of tech "wizards", the source of this problem could be anything from "insufficient cooling, some advising to open up my PC and blow my hair fan into it" and to "cheap or faulty power supplies, shutting down from setting a mug of coffee too hard on PC desk" All these are great, but I was wondering if I can get an opinion from an expert by writing down the actual error code. So with no further babbling, here it is:

    ----------------------------Error Code------------------------------
    (automatic restart setting disabled)

    Event Loader started
    Source of error: SaveDump
    EventID: 1001

    "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x10000050 (0xfffffff7, 0x00000000, 0x805dfa3d, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini091006-04.dmp."

    ------------------------Computer Description-----------------------
    + OS: Win XP /SP 2.
    + CPU: AMD 64 X2 3800Mhz
    + 3.00 GHz of RAM (2 kingston 1GB chips and one "hmmm...I'll call it a major brand 1GB chip, not sure which though". ***I guess it could be the RAM, I've gotten those ideas as well...I'm gonna check it out, swap those bad boys around.
    + Video Card: eGeForce 6800GS Nvidia 256MB (PCI)
    + Power Supply: 600W (not one of those cheap ones, had it for 6 months now, but who knows...pretty sure its not the problem though)
    + 2 Internal USB cards
    + 19inch Rosewill DVA (i think thats the name....the other thing of AGP)
    + Sound Card in the Mobo (doesn't matter anyway, my sound is through USB)
    + I also have one of those big bad CPU fans (keeps CPU at a chill 37C)
    + Motherboard is an ASUS A8N5X ***(brand new, just replaced it so its definitely not the problem, same error was happening on the other one)
    + 3 SATA Hard Drives 2 WestDig 250GB (7.5K) and an ULTRA 36GB (10K rpm) ***I thought it could be the RAID configuration, but its not, not running it now.
    + A few fans: (not including the CPU fans, VC fan, mobo Fan and PS fans) i got 3x[120mm] and 5x[90mm], all pretty much new, average RPMs are around 1800rpm. Whatever, I'm not getting rid of my air spinners, I like my blue LEDs, my computer looks like a little space ship...anyway...pretty sure its not an overheating problem here. And I did try removing a bunch, didn't do anything to the problem.
    + I also have a few peripherals (keyboard, mouse, fingerprint reader, my speakers are ran through USB - Harmon Kardon SoundSticks...what else...oh and an external 120GB Maxtor Hard Drive)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    ....wooph...I think this just about covers it...sorry if I wasted a lot of your time. Please help me! I am desperately searching for a solution to this disasterous problem. I will be very grateful to everyone who can contribute and will maybe send you a lolly pop or something :) Anyway, thanks everyone!!!

    ---Have a wonderful day!

    Well i first thought it was my ram
    And taking out 1 dimm worked aswell to get rid of most errors
    But after i got 2 brand new ram dimms
    The problem still came up

    My problem is almost 100% shure the mother board
    By search and destroy on other possibillities
    I came to the conclusion that my dimm banks must be faulty
    So i'm going to let the shop replace the motherboard

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventvwr.msc
    Run that it's your logbook
    Within you can read your error code

    Choose SYSTEM and search your SAVE DUMP
    There you'll get the error info in human language

    Source of error: SaveDump
    EventID: 1001
    Wont get you any info on the microsoft site doh
    I guess we got ourselfs a REAL MICROSOFT BUG
    Which in most times shows to be hardware related

    I'll send my pc to repairs next week so will post if the new motherboard was a solution

    How do you get the USB soundsticks to work in XP? I plug mine into my PC and XP does not even notice that they have been connected. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Page Fault in Nonpage Area

    To cpc2006:

    i've read a few replies by you regarding to the captioned problem.
    I've come to page fault problem lately and i hope you can give me a hand!

    Since i don't know how to make the "minidumps"...here're some details which you've mentioned in the previous posts...
    the failing modules are:
    0x00000050
    0xE80000A4
    0x804EFEC1
    0x00000002

    The message(s) shown in Event 1001 is:
    The server {8BC3F05E-D86B-11D0-A075-00C04FB68820} hasn't logged onto DCOM within the expired waiting time.

    Since my system is in chinese...i translated the above message. Hope it makes sense to you.

    I've found other error message of Event 10005 which related to the DCOM server. They mostly talk about the failure to connect to DCOM when i start windows in safe mode....so i guess it's the DCOM server problem.

    Looking forward to your reply and thanks for your help!!!!!!!!!

    You dont have to make the mini dump yourself
    Everytime you get a blue screen after a crash
    Then windows automaticly creates the minidump

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventvwr.msc
    There you will be able to read the code in human language

    And many more info is available there

    I finaly got my pc running without any errors
    The dimms are replaced for the 2nth time
    And i also got a new dvd burner
    NOW all problems are gone
    So it wasnt my mobo dimm lock but pure hardware problems

    A m8 of mine had the same messages everytime
    Replaced his dimms and problem was fixed

    So if you have this error code first thing to try is get some other memory in there
    Preferaby some dimms from a friends pc
    Because your shure those dimms are ok cos they work on a friends pc
    If you still get the message then your in the jungle and have to guess

    well...after i posting the 1st message...i realise i could use the norton ghost installed in my computer to do the WinDoctor diagnosis..
    after curing the found problem...i restart my computer w/ the fault detection mode it didn't show any fault message anymore..yet either my firewall/msn has problems...which while my firewall is on..i can't log on to my msn...but i haven't modified any settings of my firewall..then after i switched off my firewall..i can get on to msn....but this is very unusual...
    the most important thing is that my OS is in chinese...which prohibit me from understanding the problem stated in the Even log.

    Solution that works for me

    Hi, had this problem recently and couldnt discovered what was the main cause. After 2 weeks of inspecting I think that there are 2 possible causes:
    1) All windows updates installed
    2) Colin McRae 2005 starforce drivers

    Not sure what exactly it is, but when not installing these things it works fine so far for few days(which is quite success). But I think that everyone can have different causes of that.
    Hope it helps someone
