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?

Hi Janhams,

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.

A message just "popped up"


It has to do with memory. When you make requests of your computer programs it puts those requests in a stack (or pile) and then works on them in a predefined order. There's a certain amount of memory reserved for the stack and when you exceed it you get a stack overflow error. These errors usually either kill the request or result in a program crash.

I have an Acer Aspire E700 running vista home premium and am having alot of trouble with it shutting down with a blue screen saying that 'kernel_stack_inpage_error. I have run chkdsk and it doesnt come up...


Kernel stack errors are nasty and cause blue screen errors.
I would check your installed RAM, if there are no errors, the NTFS error is worrying as that means hard drive failure.
Take your pick really but Heystack errors can be caused by errors on the hard drive.
As you boot up your Desktop, press F8 and select Safe Mode. If it loads then it may be memmory errors. Check memmory by using the BIOS menu and select Memmory Test in the option menu, it will depend on your BIOS version as to what it is called or indeed even where it is, so you may need to search a bit!
If you can get into the programmes, back up all you need and then run Recovery from the F8 menu, then reinstall your data but don't bother with AVG use a propper antivirus like Norton or even Microsoft Essentials.
Hope this helps.

Why does my computer keep crashing? I have an acer ASL-100-UD360Athat shuts down and says kernal-data-inpage-error then it starts dumping phsical memory and reboots. . I bought this computer from radishack...


With so many service calls for the same or similar problems, it would appear that another component in the system is burning out your motherboard and DVD drive. I'm willing to bet that your power supply is the issue.
If it is still under warranty, send it back and make that suggestion. Otherwise seriously consider a new computer. If you have to pay for repairs on this one, you will end up buying a new motherboard and a new power supply.

Need to replace faulty driver on Kernel stack


No problem. just google the brand name of your computer with the word driver after it. You will get free downloadable and up to date drivers. Just click on the correct one and run it. It will automatically replace your old driver. Joe

Kernal stack inpage error


You didn't say what your doing when you get this error. It can be caused by many issues. If you have your xp cd and can boot to Windows, open Run type SFC /SCANNOW and let the operating system repair the Windows files. 

If this doesn't solve the issue more information is necessary to diagnose the problem

HP computer is frozen and won't shut down, even by the off button. It just comes back on automatically still frozen. It's not my computer. My friend can't get online, but she could call you, if you think...


If you still cannot shut down even by the off button next time, you can remove the power supply/off the main supply.
leave it for 30 sec and restart again. If the problem still occur, check your registry.. you can get more info from below link

Ram / memory can also cause such an error. You can run a free memory checker (checks your system memory). Click the link.

Scroll down the page to just under the three screen shots.
Under ** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) **
Download either files:
Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)

Or
Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

I would appreciate it if you could post back with your findings.
Good luck!
