This Stop message occurs when requested data is not found in memory. The system generates a fault, which normally indicates that the system looks for data in the paging file. In this circumstance, however, the missing data is identified as being located within an area of memory that cannot be paged out to disk. The system faults, but cannot find, the data and is unable to recover. Faulty hardware, a buggy system service, antivirus software, and a corrupted NTFS volume can all generate this type of error.
User Action:
This Stop message usually occurs after the installation of faulty hardware or in the event of failure of installed hardware (usually related to defective RAM, either main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM). If hardware has been added to the system recently, remove it to see if the error recurs. If existing hardware has failed, remove or replace the faulty component. Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer. For details on these procedures, see the owners manual for your computer. Another cause of this Stop message is the installation of a buggy system service. Disable the service and determine if this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer of the system service about a possible update. If the error occurs during system startup, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. At the resulting Windows 2000 Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time. Antivirus software can also trigger this Stop message. Disable the program and determine if this resolves the error. If it does, contact the manufacturer of the program about a possible update. A corrupted NTFS volume can also generate this Stop message. Run Chkdsk /f /r to detect and repair disk errors. Restart the system before the disk scan begins on a system partition. If the hard disk is SCSI, check for problems between the SCSI controller and the disk. Finally, check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device or driver causing the error. Disabling memory caching of the BIOS might also resolve it. For more troubleshooting information about this Stop message, refer to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at

Hi, i'm having problems with my pc. ive got it out of asking me the system password and when it starts it says a problem has been detected... on a blue screen. how can i get rid of this???

That is the BSOD - it appears when the system has encountered a fatal error and has crashed.
I think it's time to reinstall Windows, it will be a lot quicker and easier than trying to fix the origin of the BSOD.

Page fault in nonpage area

Restart the Computer and keep tapping the F8 key for 5 to 7 seconds to display the Advanced Boot Option screen. On that screen, select "Last Known Good Configuration" option. Furthermore, if you've installed any new hardware then uninstall it.

Once the Computer is able to boot successfully, run "chkdsk /f /r" utility to detect and repair any disk errors.

Faulty hardware, a buggy system service, anti-virus software, and a corrupted NTFS volume can all generate this type of error.

New XPPro Install... Can't see HD

Try to download a widows XP based driver for your Promise Controller from the manufacturer's website and install it. This is really necessary. If it does not solve the problem, you reinstall windows XP. When XP begins installtion it flashes a message like this: "Press F2 to install a third party driver......" Press F2 and insert the Promise controller driver in a floppy. This way it will work. (I hope so..) Note: Do not remove floppy untill Windows finishes installation
