NT4 Restart Stop Screen 0x50
Posted on 1998-07-02
I have a new PII-350 with 128meg dram, 2 - 6gig removable HDs, SB16 sound card, 32x CD-ROM, Intel Ether Express Pro PCI, Appian Pro 8meg dual monitor card, and a HP writable CD-ROM hooked to the parallel port. I am running NT4 with service pack 3.
The two removable 6gig drives.
One is partitioned into three. c: - 1gig (NT4 loaded) f: - 2gig (data) g: - 3gig (data) all fat16.
The other is not formatted yet.
If I "shutdown the computer" (turn off) and restart it boots fine.
When I "restart the computer" my machine it gives me STOP 0x50 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA on the startup. I have searched microsoft's site to no avail. The memory (ram) is fine.
I had the virtual memory on c:\ 200meg and g:\ 200meg when i tried to restart the stop screen came up with stop 0x50. When I turned off the machine and rebooted the check disk ran on the drives that had the virtual memory, so I tried to change the virtual memory drive to c:\ 200meg and f:\ 200meg I got the same message and the check disk ran again on the drives that had the virtual memory.
I thought if I only had the virtual memory on c: it would fix the problem. I restarted my machine at least 5 or 6 times with success. Ha, I have it beat. NOT SO :(
It started again with the virtual memory only on c:.
The only strange part in this machine that I haven't worked with before are the rebootable HD's.
Any advice would be helpful.
