"Blue Screen" page_fault_in_non-paged_area"

by 10qu / June 8, 2011 4:39 PM PDT

The Blue screen occasionally pops up and at times my cursor is frozen when I start up. I am told it is a hardware problem - my C-drive is faulty. Anybody able to confirm this? Or, could it be a virus (which I can't seem to clear) I have used SuperAnti-spyware, but continually get Adware "doubleclick" reappearing.

It might be hardware
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / June 8, 2011 8:09 PM PDT

but not necessarily.

"Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card)."

That from http://aumha.org/a/stop.htm and find the link to - 50 - in the left hand column.

Do you only use SuperAnti-spyware? Do you have a firewall and anti-virus as well? If so, which ones?

it is most likely a RAM issue..Please run the hardware diagnostic tool from the BIOS if it presents there.

Probably its a ram memory

Probably some of the softwares are using constantly the same process so ram memory is over capacity. Try to add more ram or unninstall some of the softwares you have installed recently.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
