Ntfs.sys PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGE AREA / Registry Fault

Many Thanks in advance……this is my first time I have had a PC problem.

MY PC is 18th mth old Dell Inspiron 530 running Windows Vista 4 x 1 GB RAM

The problem started when I was watching a video clip on Windows media player. The screen started breaking up on to horizontal coloured lines ( predomenantly Pink) and the PC froze.
I tried rebooting in safe mode however it wouldn’t allow, howevere managed to do Start up repair.

At first I was getting a blue screen Ntfs.sys PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGE AREA , however after reboot a number of times , including running CHKDSK and startup repair , the system eventually let me through to the windows log on screen. After logging ( the sreen you access programms from) the screens breaking up again on to horizontal coloured lines.

I have tried cleaning dust from inside case and removed and re inserted RAM

Tried repeating checks e.g. start up repair and receive the following :-

Finally , Not sure if this would have anything to do with it, however I downloaded Quicktime to play music clip about a 30minutes earlier before the problem started happening.

Also I have family photos on the PC which are not backed up and would like to protect then of possible.

the error means that your PC asked for a page of memory , and the page was not available. when the operation could not continue, it BSOD'd and shut down. Its usually happens as a result of a hardware that is misfiring or failing. The 'Page_Fault_in_Nonpaged_Area' and "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal" BSOD's often show up consecutively and alternately. Things to try to correct or identify the problem are to restore your machine to the last know working configuration. if the problem keeps appearing run disk check for errors on your HDD. if that shows nothing, the next most likely suspect is a problem with the Ram. You can download any number of programs that will test your ram for errors. Win 7 has a built in memory test (not sure about the RC though) and you do not have to burn a disc to run it. Hope that helps some.

Many thanks for your help.

I have 4 x 1gb of RAM , could it be they are all failing or could it be just 1 or 2 . I have taken them out and switched them around into different slots, but that hasnt made any difference

If one of the modules is failing, moving it to another dimm will not correct the problem. what you can do is remove the ram modules one at a time and to find the faulty one. run a memory program like memtest, or even the built in windows memory program to see if that is the problem.

Your a genius.....It looks like that is the problem. I removed a couple of strips of ram and re booted in safe mode and its letting me into windows.
I am going to try and back up my family photos to DVDR and then try and find out if both the removed strips have fails or just the one.

Many thanks again....I have been well stressed.

All the best
