Windows 7 BSOD Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

Specs: Windows 7
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3

It keeps happening, please for the love of God, help me. I'm doing everything I can!! :( I'm no computer whiz, and I'm not good with Bios, and all that. I've downloaded so many programs to fix/check for these errors, and still it happens! Sorry if I'm typing quickly, I'm afraid it will happen again. It happens randomly.

It even once caught me in Safe Mode w/ Networking!

My computer was custom built at Digital Addition.

I've checked the inside of my computer several times, everything appears to be put properly in place. I've used several programs in an attempt to find, and destroy this thing. I spent money on RegisteryBooster, and it's still not fixed.

I've tried to download updates, but 3-6 updates cannot be downloaded due to some freaky error that continues to pop up, however I managed to download most of everything else. Yet, the updates I need to download are considered critical Windows-7 updates.

I've only had this computer for a short period of time (When I pulled it out from my box after 4-6 months of being idle) and the BSOD of death has happened on numberous ocassions, with numberous words. MOSTLY it is Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area, but IRL_not_less_or_equal, and Memory_me-something has also appeared.

'It keeps happening, please for the love of God, help me.'
Is that really necessary?

RegisteryBooster, is trash so i would suggest uninstalling it.

'My computer was custom built at Digital Addition'
Did you contact their tech support as from what you tell us, it may still be under warranty.

Was windows 7 pre-installed on the PC?
Isn't there an exact error number on the blue screen?
You may want to try a memtest on your ram:
http://www.memtest86.com/download.html
run the test for a few hours with all the ram in...it should identify a bad ram

Another way to test it
Depends on how many sticks of ram are in your PC, if there are 2 or more, take them all out except one, then add the others if the one works fine...like a process of elimination.

I contacted them, but reaching them physically will take a week to two weeks, due to the area where I live. I'd rather have a quicker/closer solution.

Yes, Win7 was installed on the PC.

I posted the entire error code given to me after the PC restarts up above. But as for numbers -on- the blue screen? A lot of 0s.

Ughrr... I can't even identify RAM on this thing.

Note: One of my friends suggested it was conflicting Hard-drives, and hard-drive updates. Could that be possible? He suggests take it to Geek Squad.

EDIT: I don't have a CD-ROM to work with Memtest.

Is it a laptop or PC?

Try taking the RAM sticks out (if you know enough to do so). Clean their edge connectors with a pencil eraser then pop them in and out a few times to clear any oxide off the sockets themselves. Oxide can sometimes give problems after computers are laid up.

The pictures on here might help - click link:

I think you must have misquoted what your friend said - never heard of conflicting hard drives. Conflicting updates are possible (as are many other things) but try the above first.

Avoid registry boosters and cleaners (free or otherwise). They can do more harm than good.

Please do not post then vanish - let us know the outcome

It's a PC

If I'm going to try swapping ram sticks around (And there appears to be four, 2 colored black(ish), two colored blue(ish) I'm going to have to do it tomorrow, or Sunday due to time frame issues.

Suffice to say, that I get these BSOD errors everytime I turn on my computer, for about 4-8 times before it stops for the rest of the day. However, should I turn off my computer for more than I suppose 6-12 hours, it then starts up again.

Does anyone have any additional contributions to that, or stick to the RAM idea?

OK but clean the edge connectors the way I said too.

Not sure what you are doing exactly.

You download memtest and put it on a CD.

Yeah, I've no idea how to work that thing. It's telling me to put it on a CD, I don't have a CD ROM (Empty one) lying at home. Rather, I have DVD+R roms.

Anywho, this morning I cleaned out the RAM cards with my erase. I could only get the bottom half-inch or so, and the sides, because I had these thick metal/silver plates on them (Built like that) each one said DDR3, or DRIM3 I forgot which. If anyone is familiar.

Turned on my PC, and my beginning "Black screen" start up, ran for 2 seconds, before zipping it's way over to windows.

NORMALLY I had to wait until a dotted line ran to the very edge, even the second line of my screen. Instead, it ran for 3 ticks. IMO: I guess I fixed it? I'll update this page within the next 2-3 days/Whenever someone responds, to check out what's going on/tell you of my status.

I'm not familiar with the RAM appearance you mentioned but someone else might well recognise it.

I suspect it was an oxide issue (I've run into that countless times) and just removing the RAM and re-inserting it fixed the problem.

Yes, please let us know if it continues to work - hope so.

If you should ever need to know, it is fine to burn memtest onto a CD-R. You will have to burn the disk using the "burn an image" feature in your burner software if the download is an ISO file. You probably have to set the CD ahead of the HD in BIOS too, so that it boots to it when you power on the system with the CD in the drive. Let's hope you won't need this but if necessary we can clarify the exact situation at that time. It is ages since I used memtest - the rust is obviously showing LOL.

Came back home today after a college Oreintation. My computer took more than a few seconds to load, it gave me some concern. Next few minutes later: Boom, BSOD.

Pulled my computer open, tried the re-de-oxidization thing again. I found a strange adhesive substance on one of my RAM cards, which I was able to get off. I have no idea if that contributed to it, but it's gone now. The others seem clean.

Popped it all back in, 3 second load, I'm posting now. Hopefully tomorrow does not recieve the same issue(s). Keep your fingers crossed!

A bit weird then, seems like you need a week of good boots to get any confidence that the problem is really fixed. Keep us posted - thx.

Ugh, the error happened again.

I turned on my computer Sunday morning, and went along, thinking everything was fine and dandy. Next I go to AIM to turn it on, and some error window pops up, and then next thing I know - BSOD.

I don't know why, but for whatever reason, pulling my RAM out, and then popping it back in, seems to have fixed the problem - at least, for yesterday. Ish.

EDIT: I also got a BSOD "Bad_Pool_header"

Well, mostly BSOD's are hardware but certainly not always.

There are a lot of hits in google searching with "Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area".
Did you get memtest to run eventually?

This link might help for the Bad_Pool_header:
http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread....

If any of the BSOD's mention a file name, let us know what it is as it might help.

Unfortunately BSOD's can be due to a multitude of things.

Well, ahem, I removed my "back" 2 RAM cards out. First I removed one last night, all seemed fine, and dandy. Then with another BSOD error today, I removed the second one.

I have NOT yet recieved page_fault_in_nonpaged area, however additional BSOD errors have been striking me today such as: IRQ_Not_less_or_equal, and I guess when I went to make coffee Bad_Pool_header struck me.

Any solutions to those, mayhaps? :X I'm looking at the links, and I'm not exactly finding much...

I ran a program called LinX 0.6.4

Didn't tell me I had any errors.

This is AFTER I removed 2/4 of my RAM, mind you all.

Nope, this morning I continued to recieve Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area, it's still not fixed despite the removal of 2 RAM cards.
