Kernel stack inpage error

I have recently experienced my computer shutting down with a message saying
kernel stack inpage error
is this fixable
many thanks
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.

Computer clicks then shows the kernel data inpage error screen


I'm sorry to say but that sounds like a hard disk failure. Classic symptoms.

Run a diagnostics test using Seatools:

Hi, When my computer works on battery, I every time get a BSOD with the message Kernel-Data-Inpage-Error. It appears totally random, it's not just when I run a specific program. The first time it happened...


This seems like a OS problem. I am guessing you are using Windows but no matter what OS you are using, if Kernel is giving errors, reinstall the OS. This is not a hardware problem so running checkdisk or reinstalling drivers etc is not going to help.

The drive sounds like it is failing. Noisy drives are a classic sign of impending failure. I would back up all of my critical files and replace the drive as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more damage can be done and you might not be able to recover files. Good luck

The hinge is loose (there is a lot of Play ) and it goes to a blue screen with a kernel stack inpage error or black screen when i try to move the screen


Please stop using the laptop and have it serviced. You may be able to fix it yourseff if you're mechanically inclined and get yourself the service manual from Dell. I got mine for my Inspiron 9100 for about $10 from eBay.
The wires that feed the signal to the screen are located in the hinge area, and using the laptop in this condition is probably shorting the wires, causing the blue screen of death.
Good luck!

Faulty driver on the kernel stack


Hi cheetahgirl,
What part of your system hardware did you just replace, update software driver?
Similar errors;
Messages typically occur after installing faulty drivers or system.
A faulty driver on the kernel stack must be replaced.

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!

Kernel data inpage error


It is best practice with a used computer to completely format and
clean-install Windows. In your case, this is what you definitely need to
do after performing some hardware diagnostics. Here are links that will
show you how to do a clean install and what you will need on hand:
