BSoD's... Page fault in nonpaged area, and untitled

  1. After 10 passes memtest did not report any errors. Checkdisc ran fine too, and my winxp install is clean.

    chkdsk is not a complete, intelligent drive test nor is memtest perfect - So don't rule these things out.

    I'd recommend taking a spin over to this thread https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic7602.html and run the appropriate drive diagnostc, as this is a very good possibility.

    If it isn't your drive, then we'll need more information. Maybe your processor or graphics card is overheating, maybe it is a driver issue, maybe it is an incompatability issue, maybe it is a bad cable, maybe it is a failing power supply... you get the idea. The more information the better. :)

    The culprit is hardware. Probably it is faulty motherboard as one of the minidump crashes with cli (ie clear interrupt)

    Invalid system memory was referenced. This cannot be protected by try-except,
    it must be protected by a Probe. Typically the address is just plain bad or it
    is pointing at freed memory.
    Arg1: bff50ff0, memory referenced.
    Arg2: 00000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
    Arg3: 804de9a4, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
    Arg4: 00000000, (reserved)

    Thanks for the replies

    Rick and cpc2004,
    Thanks for the help you gave so far.
    As I found from running WD's tools nothing's wrong with my hdd. However, sometimes when I'm not doing anything with the pc, sometimes it makes a sound as if the power supply is gone (I think it's the HDD making the sound), it's some sort of a knicking sound. I think it might be either the HDD, PSU, or RAM. It's also quite occasionaly happening that I get ta BSoD when starting up iTunes.

    The clickling sound may be from the fan.
