    Hi,

    I have been having many BSODs on my workstation, more than 10 per day. Most are #50 page_fault_in_non_paged area. They seem to occur at randomly. Ran memtest, but didn't find any problems.

    I Hired an IT consultant last week to troubleshoot the system and they took out one RAM card and changed the power supply. After still having many crashes, they suggested I format the system and reinstall windows.

    Formatted, and reinstalled Windows yesterday, but I'm still crashing. Here are the minidump files from the last two days. I haven't saved the old ones before formatting, sorry.

    View attachment zficyk_minidumps.zip

    Since the IT consultant was simply looking up your forum, I decided to go straight to the experts. Please help before I take a hammer to my computer.

    ZF

    Hi and welcome

    These point to memory management. It could be either the memory itself or a driver.

    Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.



    1-Memtest.


    *Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

    *Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

    Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

    Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.




    2-Driver verifier

    Hi zficyk and Welcome to The Forum.

    Further to zigzags excellent advice here are some older drivers that could do with updating:

    e1k62x64.sys Mon Jun 22 19:05:53 2009 Intel 82577LM Gigabit NIC. You could also try the IntelĀ® Driver Update Utility to see if it has any other newer drivers for you.
    I tend to find it works better when I use Internet Explorer.

    iaStor.sys Fri Jun 05 02:53:40 2009
    iaStorV.sys Wed Apr 08 17:57:17 2009
    Intel Rapid Storage.

    RTKVHD64.sys Fri Jul 10 11:23:45 2009 Realtek HD Audio R2.64

    atikmdag.sys Thu Jul 30 04:33:27 2009 AMD Graphics Drivers

    • Download and install Driver Sweeper.
    • Uninstall your current Graphics setup through Programs and Features
    • Boot to and run Driver Sweeper in (preferably) Safe Mode to clean up the remnants of your current Graphics set up.
    • Reboot to Normal Mode.
    • Install your new Graphics set up.


    HTH.

    Thank-you for the quick replies.

    I'm pretty sure it's not the RAM since I've run memtest overnight a couple of times and no errors were found.

    I'll try updating the drivers.

    Thanks again,
    ZF
