Question about PC Desktops
I have recently experienced my computer shutting down with a message saying
kernel stack inpage error
is this fixable
My computer makes some clicking noises then freezes and then a blue screen pops up and says 'kernel stack inpage error'. It's really annoying. What is it telling me? What can I do to prevent / remedy the problem?
Unfortunately the screen you are seeing has a name for it "the BSOD" or blue screen of death (click here for more info). by your description of the clicking sounds id say that it is an intermediate to serious hardware problem, but there are so many reasons for the BSOD that its hard to nail it down to just one.
That said the BSOD can happen because of conflicting software and/or hardware failures. Think back a bit and try to remember if you put any new software on the pc before this started happening. If you did, try uninstalling that software.
If the answer is no then:
If it were my PC as soon as i see the BSOD I would replace the RAM memory and wait to see if it happens again. You can find the RAM just inside the CPU its an easy job (couple of screws and your done) and i can walk you through it if you like.
If it did happen again I would reformat the hard drive and again wait to see if the BSOD shows its ugly head.
If you follow the two steps above and you still get the BSOD then you know that its a more serious hardware problem and needs some hands on maintenance by a professional.
If you choose to reformat and want to do it yourself please click on my profile and ask me How do i reformat.
