windows vista blue screen PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

Posted on 2009-04-28

ran registry cleaner last night and now I get blue screen.

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA  STOP: 0x00000050(0XFFFFF900C05EE000, 0X0000000000000001, 0XFFFFF96000174DF0, 0X0000000000000000)
WINN32K.SYS - ADDRESS FFFFF96000174DFO BASE AT FFFFF960000B0000, DATEST amp 498fa36b

It then completes a crash dump and restarts into the select safe mode option screen but no matter what is selected, it automaticly restarts the entire proccess again.

I've tried using the installation disk to repair startup, but get message that startup could not be repaired.

I've tried installation disk to retore, but get error message that system restore did not complete successfully.  The system cannot find the file specified (0x80070002)

I can get into BIOS screen, but nothing else.  Everything I try simple restarts the entire proccess again starting with the blue screen.

    it seems that  restore points are not available for the system for restore service to work on. in addition, since you mentioned that even the safe mode booting is not working.

    under the circumstances, you would need to put the installation disk in the cddrive and start boot from the CD.

    during the installation when asked select repair the existing os setup rather than a fresh install. your data would be safe

    I am offered several different restore points, and have tried each of them with the same erroro msg.

    I have also tried "Repair Your Computer" from the installation disk.  
    It starts the startup repair and message is "Startupp Repair Cannot Repair This Computer Automaticly" It then lists 10 seperate problem signatures

    as it appears to me from what you described is, that your restore points have been cleaned / not available.
    can you enumerate few problem signatures you are getting while doing system repair from the boot disk.

    this would enable me to decide whether your system can be restored or if you need to do a fresh install on different location

    Can you upload the .dmp files from c:\windows\minidump to this thread? We might be able to isolate the faulting module....

    If you cant boot it, then you can always use a BartPE CD to boot to an alternate OS, and retrieve the files.....

    What is the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows?

    Or simply slave this drive into another workstation and retrieve them that way.

    Rename them to .txt files prior to uploading them here.......

    01   startup repairV2
    02   6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6001.18000
    03   6
    04   589833
    05   0x50
    06   0x50
    07   0

    09   WrpRepair
    10   87
    OS Version    6.0.6000.
    Locale ID   1033

    Still trying to make the BartPE boot CD in order to extract the .dmp files

    I have a boot cd which I've used previously with no issue.  I reset the boot device priority with CD/DVD as 1st boot device, but upon startup, it iimmediately goes to WINDOWS ERROR RECOVERY SCREEN with startup options, and then again auto restarts in blue screen doing a crash dump, then again to WINDOWS ERROR SCREEN.

    I checked the boot CD in my Desktop PC and it looks fine.

    The issue is on a laptop so I cannot use it as a slave drive???

    Please don't leave me hanging.
    I don't mind reinstalling the system, but would be in a real mess if I couldn't at least get a few docs and .pst file out first.

    If you cannot boot from a CD, then your only option is to remove the hard disk and connect to another PC. The hard disk is probably SATA and will connect to a desktop PC with a spare SATA connection (2.5" SATA drives have standard SATA connectors) . Another alternative is a USB adapter or enclosure. This adapter works well:

    I'm trying to understand why it will not boot from a CD with boot priority set to optical drive. Have you tried another bootable disk?

    Accepted Solution

    Reinnstalled.  Tried several different boot drives and the only one that worked was the original Vista drive, but the restore or repair functions didn't work so no other choice other than to reinstall vista.
