  1. So lately my comps being screwing up alot. Each time my comp boots and you see the desktop the comp automatically restarts.

    However today is not the usuall, when it restarted it suddenly displayed a blue screen saying this:

    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    STOP: 00000050 (0XE18E1000, 0X00000001, 0x804F079B, 0x00000001)

    Begining dumping of physical memory.

    bumps don't work here.

    zip up your last few minidumps as an attachment.
    run memtest 86+ from a floppy drive.

    It means your RAM and/or motherboard is bad - more than likely the RAM has failed. Any errors with memtest should be taken seriously.

    Hi were having a similar problem but when we shutdown/restart the pc we get the Blue screen that says "Page_Fault_in_nonpaged_Area 0x00000050 (0xfffffff0), 0x00000000, 0x80543c1d, 0x00000000" cant find this code on the web, i happened before and we swaped the ram, but its doing it again now, we tryed some more ram from another Dell pc we have and still the same thing!! does this still sound like a motherboard?

    hope some one can help.... :)

    I've have tested my ram on one of my friend's computers and works perfectly. Does this mean my problem lies in my motherboard? Or does this error have anything to do with the hardrive or virus?

    Some ram will work in some mobos and not others. I know this for a fact.
    Best to borrow a stick of ram from a buddy and try that in your pc.
    Its often failure of ram rather than failure of mobo.
    Test ALL connections, fans, etc. Take ram out and use soft pencil eraser to clean it and only put one back in, unless its rdram, then you need 2 sticks.

    Using google:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Begining+dumping+of+physical+memory&btnG=Google+Search

    I found this and other entries:

    "I had the same problems.i had an irq conflict and i dont think my nic card was seeded right.i swapped my sound card and nic to different slots set the bios to non plug and play os and have been fine since.drove me crazy for about a week."

    Look in device mgr and see if there are any red or yellow markings.

    Thx for the response. If it indeed is the rams problem why is it showing problems now? I've bought this computer a year ago and it has worked fine until now.

    Oh and also if any1 can please examine my minidumps to see whats wrong

    RAM could go bad at anytime, heat is the biggest problem, so if you don't have enough fans in the case you better start adding them. You should have one fan in front for air intake and one or two in the rear or side of the case for air out take. Still that's not going to stop the RAM for going bad but anything can help.

    He's certainly right. On top of that there is cheap ram and there is expensive ram with cheap or cheaper ram not usually lasting as long.
    Not only that, but check ram out on the web, like at newegg.com and you will see that better ram has heatsinks or heatspreaders on them for just that reason, to dissipate heat and keep ram from going bad from heat!
    In addition, i have personally seen a stick of ram start in one mobo and not start in 2 others, then it works in a 4th mobo. Some mobos will accept some ram and rejects others.
