    I am not familiar with how Comodo works; I only know that through my reading and research that many people use it and it comes highly recommended by users. I strongly suggest going over to their very active forums and see what they say.

    Keep us up to date as to whether or not your stability continues.

    Page fault in non paged area (zone alarm)

    This happened to me recently and so i was grateful i was able to RECOVER and have joined this forum purposefully
    to tell people the symptoms and how i was able to get rid of PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. This is a very
    UNEXPECTED and Annoying ERROR that does not seem to go away no matter what. I associated this error with
    ZONE ALARM since it happened right after i installed ZONE ALARM. I recieved the error and these are all the types
    of fixes i tried that did NOT work. They might work for you but for me it did NOT. (1) Clicking Start , Run, then in the
    XP CD YOU MUST IN ORDER TO CONTINUE. AFTER this type of scan i do not believe you are prompted to Reboot.

    (2) I tried to RESET MY BIOS by taking the CMOS BATTERY OUT. Im not going to go into detail on this as it is a
    somewhat detailed explanation and rather have you study it for yourself. It involves RESETING the BIOS and you will
    have to Manually ENTER THE CORRECT TIME AND DATE to continue. If you enter this option and after you have
    SET THE TIME, i suggest you go to MAINTAINENCE And Load the defaults. Click ESC after you are done and Save/
    and EXIT will auto reboot. These are the first two Options i used which DID NOT WORK for me.

    (3) The 3rd option i tried was to use CHKDSK to check for errors. If you want to try this option something you should
    do at least ONCE A MONTH anyways to AVOID CRASHES and ERRORS, click on MY COMPUTER, right clock your
    DRIVE (usually says C: Internal) , go to Properties, Click the TOOLS TAB. Press the CHECK NOW BUTTON, check
    BOTH OPTIONS and press ok. CHKDSK will not be able to continue since it need's exclusive access to all the files
    while they are not in use so it will ask if you would like to check the NEXT time you reboot, at which point you will click
    YES. This Checks the System Integrity, Make Sure the VOLUME is clean as well as SEVERAL other System Validity
    and File checking. You do not have to do anything it will check everything for you and Reboot when it is done but it
    could take HOURS, at least one hour to finish before reboot.

    (4) System Restore did not work for me either, what a mess.

    For some reason PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA only started up when i tried to connect to the INTERNET.
    This also led me to believe it had to do with ZONE ALARM and it's firewall properties. This errors if it happened after
    you installed or Reinstalled ZONE ALARM is ZONE ALARMS faulty coding and has actually been around for YEARS!

    This is the ONLY WAY i was able to FIX IT. First UNINSTALL ZONE ALARM. Second REINSTAL THE LATEST

    You will need to find your WINDOWS XP CD that should have come with your computer when you bought it. If you
    did not get one from the place you bought it CONTACT THEM AND MAKE THEM SEND YOU ONE. They should
    send you one with no problem even if the warranty is over. Just complain, don't waste too much time trying to be
    nice! After you have the CD put it in your CD DRIVE. Reboot and type F12 which is the boot options MENU. With
    your UP AND DOWN arrows, highlight boot from CD and press enter. There currently is a guide on Youtube how
    to do this from a Computer Technician. It's the Video i used. Do not select the REINSTALL option because it will
    delete all your files. This specifically has to do with the REPAIR Windows XP installation from CD WITHOUT
    losing DATA *(your files etc) option. youtube.com/watch?v=uIk3eeHbUdw&fmt=18, here is a TEXT
    version, bytetips.com/repair-windows-xp/

    Remember there is a BIG difference between REPAIR and REINSTALL. Worked for me. Lost none of my files, but
    i did have to reinstall Internet Explorer, and Windows Media Player since it was set back to the Default system bought
    issues they became INCOMPATIBLE. Download the Latest version of these two programs. Last and finally i did notice
    there were a considerable amount of windows updates to perform with miscellaneous updates. Good luck.

    New LCD Problem

    I recently had a new LCD put in on my Dell Laptop which is running Windows XP. I go to pick up the computer and Windows can not start and I get a blue screen with the following message:


    STOP: 0X00000050 (0XF7AA1C80, 0X00000000, 0X806031F0, 0X00000000)

    W29n51.sys-Address F7A1C80 base at F7AA1C80, Datestamp 00000000

    Hopefully someone here can help me. Obviously the people who installed the LCD didn't bother to check to see if it worked. I can start Windows in Safe Mode. Everyone that I have spoken to (Dell and the people that installed the screen) have told me I have to do a total system restore. Looking to see if if I can avoid that if I can't if I can get any advice that a restore will actually fix the problem.

    bgsaysftp, in the future you really need to start your own thread. People will think you are replying to the OP when really you need help yourself. This thread is almost a year oild.

    That being said, your issue is with W29n51.sys which is an Intel Wireless driver. Update your drivers.

    Thanks, I'll remember that in the future. How do I go about updating the drivers?

    Go to Dell's website and find your particular model, search for driver updates, and then install the latest.

    Ok. I did that and now I can open Windows.
    However, my internal WiFi still isn't working. On the task bar the Intel Wireless Driver has a big red X on it. Does anyone know how I can connect to WiFi?

    It could be your wireless card is bad. What current driver is saying is installed? You could connect via ethernet wire for a temporary fix.

    I installed a new wireless card and all seemed fine until all of a sudden I got another blue sceen.


    The problem was with DXCB4322.sys

    All is running fine as of now but I would like to know if all I have to do is install drivers again to fix this permantly. If that's the case please let me know what drivers to install.

    Thanks everyone for all your help.

    That particular error is almost always caused by faulty drivers or buggy software. Keep an eye on it and if you get the same error and it is a driver issue then I wouls say, yes, update your wireless card drivers.

    I had it happen to me again. Is DXCB4322.sys related to the new wireless card? If it is should I uninstall and reinstall?

    Is DXCB4322.sys the correct spelling? The reason i ask is because there is absolutely nothing on the internet concerning this "driver." Google has no information at all.
