Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

Continues rebooting I'm using Vista Home Premium on my laptop. My laptop will go to blue screen and prompt me "a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer" It then will prompt me with an error string. Examples; Page_fault_in_nopaged_area, Maximum_wait_objects_exceeded, No_more_IRP_stack_locations, Bad_pool_header, and etc. Everytime it tries to reboot it comes up with a blue screen and a different error. Is there any thing I can do? (BSOD) PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA Technical Information: *** STOP: 0X00000050 (0xFFFFFFF8,0x00000000,0x80633576,0x00000000) Beginning dump of physical memory Dumping physical memory to disk: NOTE: I am running XP Pro (SP3) & recently had another issue fixed by a technician (shop) where they replaced my video card with a second hand one. I know for certain that the tech had issues trying to find a suitable driver as those he attempted to download from various sites including kept throwing up error messages. I don't know what he ended up doing - I left shop after several hours and it took a week to get back, running. The VC he installed is a GF4 MX440 8X 128MB 128BIT DDR. Maybe if I can be directed to the download link for the appropriate driver, i can try again? What do you think?

When that happens you need to reinstall the operative system.

    When that happens you need to use a Windows install disk to reinstall the system.The
    system counting and then trying to start in loop times and times again
    is because some of the startup files (typically boot.ini file) had been
    damaged because of the sudden shut down.

    What you need to do is
    locating a Windows setup disk for the version installed, and
    reinstalling the operative system as an upgrade version, so that you do
    not lose your original data.

    To install Windows you need a disk
    for that same version listed on your serial number sticker (eg. XP
    home, Vista Business etc.), located on computer side or at the back.If
    you do not have an installation CD and you are not a very experienced
    user, I suggest either having Windows reinstalled at a local shop for a
    small fee or purchasing a Windows setup CD for your system, see also
    related links below:

    How to install or upgrade to Windows XP

    I don't have an installation CD for Windows XP -XP Home costs from $90 to $120.

    If you already have the licence stickers it is better having windows reinstalled at a local shop for about $50.

    For legal reason I cannot give any link to XP download, even for troubleshooting purpose.

    The rest of the solution is listed on my previous comment.

    Some example of Win XP home cost, it will be more expensive if you have XP pro.

You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

My Vista PC stopped seeing my SD, CF, etc. drives. It still sees my blueray. All are built in. This happened before and I fixed it by downloading new drivers from MS, but I can't find the drivers now.

I would try uninstalling the device(s) using Device Manager and immediately rebooting the PC. Upon reboot, Vista will detect the hardware and install all their drivers.
Good luck!

Click on icons of user accounts on startup and Nothing Happens!

There are Spyware/malware resulting to this kind of behavior. You can remove your System Disk to another system that have antispiware up-to-date database. Kaspersky or AVG Internet Security are very effective.
Or else Im afraid you will need to format you OS drive to eradicate virus and malwares and reinstall the OS

Continues rebooting

OK it is going to be difficult to solve this one with so many different errors. Given that this is windows Vista it is probably a bad driver. Possibly the graphics card driver. Also vista is quite punishing on hard disks so we'll start there.
First off take a backup of all your documents photos videos etc. because the check disk can cause havoc if it finds a lot of errors and can take down windows altogether. Also you must be prepared to re-install windows so make sure you have a recovery method (recovery CD's or a hidden partition on the Hard Disk) If the hard disk is truly borked though it might take the hidden partition with it. Proceed with caution and make sure you can get the PC back up and running if the worst happens.

First run a check disk. In My Computer, right click on the c drive, click on properties - tools - check drive for errors, then restart your computer and let the chkdsk run.

Post back here with the outcome.

Blue screen error on windows vista home premium 64 bit

Without the error code, I will address the 'BSOD' in general here. Normally, this will happen when there is a driver fault with one (or more) of your hardware. Have you recently installed software? Older versions of programs that are not Vista approved will also cause this.
Will your computer start in Safe Mode?
You can also do a Repair of Vista using the System Recovery Options. (Choose the "Repair" option when prompted - this will tell you what is actually causing the Blue Screen.
Here is a complete 'how-to' on using the System Recovery:
