Page_Fault_in_non paged_area

Posted on 2011-02-21
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I did a fresh install of Win7 Home Premium X64 (4GB RAM) on HP PC model m8300f which has ECS motherboard MCP61PM-4M(nettle2). Basically, I do not have any software installed but the PC started going into blue screen with error message "Page_Fault_in_non paged_area". I have brandnew 4GB of memory (1x4 PC2-6400) mem ram installed. At one time PC will boot fine and another time it will bluescreen upon restarting. Bluescreen will happens when you reboots the system.
Can someone tell me how to resolve this issue. I did have the same bluescreen issue before I decided to do a fresh install hoping that it will resolve that but it did not.

Run Diagnostics test with PC CHECK and all hardware (Ram, HD, Motherboard, System Stress, Video etc) passed. Going to ensure that all drivers and windows updates are all up to date. Will also upload the dump files as suggested by ded9. Will keep all updated soon.

I changed the memory in my PC from PC2-6400 to all PC2-5300 and the BSOD stopped. I think the brand of memory ( Talent Memory) had a voltage which my mobo did/could not support. Amazingly, I had checked the specs of my mobo and it did specify that I could go with PC2-5300, or PC-6400. Anyway, after downgrading the memory, PC is very stable now. Thanks for all your advise.

Used a different type of memory and had my BSOD issued resolved.
