BSOD - Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area - ntkrnlpa.exe?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I have this Dell Inspiron 1420 that is a good 3-4 years old that I wanted to clean up and give to my younger brother to use for school. It had been randomly getting BSOD's so I did a full hardware test on it. Everything came up clean including the HDD and Memory (my two main concerns).

I installed Win 7 on it (as it was running Vista before) thinking this would clear things up as I know Vista is buggy. I got it all setup with software and everything, created a backup image and then copied some files to it. I woke up this morning and when I went to restart it it gave me the BSOD as shown in the title of this thread. I used BlueScreenView and it said the BSOD was caused by driver: ntkrnlpa.exe.

Does anyone have any experience with this issue? If it was blue screening on Vista and now on 7 as well wouldn't that indicate hardware? I tested the HDD extensively 3 different times and did 4 passes of Memtest and everything passed. I'm at a loss here.

Even though HDD and RAM is stable does not mean the rest is wink.gif

It could be a faulty windows install really, I think I have the same problem on some computers and it was fixed by reinstalling windows.

If you burn out your own windows dvd, be sure to burn it at lowest speed so you get away from potential problems with the dvd!

It was blue screening before installing Win 7 though that's why I'm thinking it's not Windows.

I would still try it once more, if not you can be pretty sure its some kind of hardware failure, which often happens to some year old computers sadly redface.gif

Or bad drivers for that sake, that can also cause BSOD's out of nothing...
