'Page fault in nonpaged area' issue.

Oct 31, 2016 8:23PM PDT

Hello everyone,

It seems my problem is a bit wacky as my kind of 'page fault in nonpaged area' is a bit harder than the other ones I've seen on the internet

I've installed some 'potentional' program on my laptop and that program contained many unwanted programs in it and I was asked to install all these crappy programs but I didn't accept, all that I've accepted installing was the main program that I downloaded and all of a sudden 'page fault in nonpaged area' shows up on my screen and then laptop restarts itself and then I found some of these crappy programs intalled on my laptop, and since then, every time the laptop reboots and I unlock it, laptop gives less than 30 seconds to do whatever I want in it before it shows the same message and reeboots and it's like that ever since

I've tried uninstalling and disabling startup for these programs, but this didn't help much and I tried to follow some of the solutions shown on the internet, but I couldn't follow them cuz the system on my laptop seems quite different to the solutions provided and my windows is version 10 and my laptop is HP .. pls help me with my issue.

That this error has both software and hardware causes. The more recent ones I fixed were heat and HDD related. They were not fixable by the owners because most owners dig in and resist doing the work required. That is, most will run a temp monitor, declare it's not heat and for the HDD run tests "proving" it's not that.

Let me see a SPECCY web report to see if it's something there. Read

download and run memtest86

Also available on all linux distro discs today, so can boot to one of those instead and run the memory tester on it. You may need to press the Shift key, or "e" key to get access to the choices during the boot cycle.
