BSOD on boot

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello, new here so go easy on me smile.gif

I would like to think of myself as a pretty handy guy when it comes to the hardware, but when I have problems with Windows and BSOD's, I am lost. Basically I get the PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA BSOD on startup. The resaerch I have done seems to narrow this down to a hardwar problem to do with all memory like the CPU cache, VRAM on the GTX 570 and my RAM. I have done a little bit of troubleshooting on the RAM by trying both sticks and trying them in various slots but with no luck. Tried safe mode boot, last known good, everything that I know of. The windows startup repair doesn't seem to work either. All BIOS settings are now at stock so I am wondering what next.

Thanks in advance,

Andrew

P.S. Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but it seemed most relevant as this is an Intel build.

microsoft lists the causes as "faulty hardware, a buggy system service, antivirus software, and a corrupted NTFS volume can all generate this type of error"

thats from the microsoft website, so it seems to be isolated to the HDD/SSD, unless you have important data i would reinstall windows, if it doesnt install get a new HDD/SSD

Nothing really, just games that I have backed up. And if you do go over a windows install, doesn't it keep your existing documents?

generally its advised to do a full wipe when reinstalling, it could keep drivers and registry enterys that will mess things up down the road.

a full wipe also helps ensure there is no lingering virus's maleware, trogans, ect

could it be possible to take the drive out and connect it to another PC and collect my files I want to retain? Its only a problem with the boot, not the HDD itself it seems.

it might be possible, doesnt hurt to try,

the drive itself could be dead, or the os could be corrupt so theres nothing left on there anyways,

but doesnt hurt to try

Ok, thanks for your help. I might try Monday or Tuesday after Easter and I will report back then. Could be a long day. I have FSX on it which is its main program and it requires so much tweaking, and software to keep it up to date. I still wonder what originally caused this. Feel free to add more opinions!

This is odd, the System recovery options says the OS is on Local Disk C:.

Ok, I am in the process of transferring files which all seem ok. Just one problem. the users files on the old Local Disk C: is about 66mb, when I transfer it it turns to about 4.6GB! Why the huge increase?
