  1. Hi,

    My computer started crashing with the following error-message about a year ago;

    Page fault in nonpage area

    It happened about each month upto now. Each time I start my computer now, I get the same bluescreen and can't continue. I have to boot using safe-modus and disable my display drivers to get the computer to start now. Any idea what this is? Do I have to replace my graphic card?

    Thank you for your help.


    I have attached some minidumps to help you analyse the problem.

    nv4_mini.sys file caused the BSOD, it is in relation to your addon nVidia Graphics card

    You need to download the latest drivers for your card, actually here they are:
    But before installing the updated graphics drivers, you must first uninstall the old ones, and then restart

    If you still have further issues after doing this, you may need to:
    • Run Bios Setup Defaults (Bios usually accessed by pressing DEL or F2 or other key, displayed when first turning on your computer.)
    • Remove the card and using high pressure air can, remove all Dust on the card, and inside the computer
    • or Replace the faulty Video card

    I hope this helps :)
