Page_Fault_in_Non_Paged_Area STOP Errors

  1. Hi, I'm new to this forum, and I stumbled across it while I was researching my computer problem that has been occurring for a few days now. It's been locking up quite often recently, and acting really weird - what makes me think it's some sort of memory problem. The only thing is that I have no idea how to determine if this problem is a result of a software or a hardware problem. So if anybody here has any knowledge on this particular situation and could help me out I would really appreciate it. I've uploaded one of the memory dumps here:

    Memory.dmp (edit) - dmp file is 1GB, how do I reduce the size so that I can upload?

    I'll upload more of them as they occur, I had my memory dump settings to overwrite so I only have the most recent one at the moment. Some of the actual error messages are Page_Fault_in_Non_Paged_Area, and sometimes it references a windows .sys file. Once it even referenced an ATI file, but I don't see how it could be my video card at this point. I have also run Memtest86+ as I was booting up and nothing came up after about 3 runs through, I'm going to try it out overnight though to test further. If anyone has any insight to this problem, I would appreciate it!

    My PC hardware setup:
    AMD Athlon 64 3200+
    ATI Radeon 9600
    120GB WDC, 40GB Maxtor drives
    Windows XP

    Let me know if any more info is needed other than a couple more dump files.

    Do a Google search for the error message just as found on the computer. There are loads of information on the problems and how to fix them. You might go through many here before you get to what you need. With the Search, you can often find a detailed description and fix. Also, www.microsoft.com has a very helpful knowledgebase article you should review.

    Your windows is crashed without pattern and it is symptom of hardware problem. Probably the ram is bad. Run memtest to stress test the ram.

    hmm... the problem seems to have disappeared... for now. Any possibility that raising the Video Aperture could have helped? I think that's all that I did.
