  1. HI!

    I got a problem with my HDD. It's a Maxtor 20gb 5200 rpm hdd. I put in a 128 mb memory to my comp, after it i got the Page Fault in non paged area error messege on a bluescreen. I thought it's memory problem but not. I installed xp on an other HDD. it's good, but i wanted to copy my data from the previous hdd, but if i boot the system up it restarts. This happens in my friends computer i don't know what to do. Please help

    A friend said that I should make a physical format...


    PHUDING with you

    unload the new memory
    ... verify it's the same type and speed as the existing memory
    reinsert the memory to reseat it.

    you ADDED 128mb, so what's the new total? XP is slow with only 256 and
    runs much better with 512.

    Whatever your RAM, verify HD free space > 2x ram and
    cp->Performance->System->Advanced->Virtual mem
    is System Managed or == 2x your installed RAM
