    I havent read the minidump but a page fault in nonpage area is almost always related to your pagefile.sys or your ram.
    You can delete your pagefile and reboot and windows will make a new one.
    And you can download for free and run memtest86 to test your ram, you have to do it one stick at a time.

    To see pagefile.sys you need to have Folder Options | View set to ‘Show Hidden and System files’, and not to ‘Hide Protected mode System files’.
    for your pagefile see here:

    Here is more info:

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your minidump crashes at MSF32.SYS. It has a bugcheck of 50.

    I think the above driver belongs to a programme called MySecretFolder.

    If you have this programme installed on your system, uninstall it and see if your BSOD`s go away.

    This is the meaning of your bugcheck code.


    Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

    If uninstalling the above programme doesn`t help.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
