Debugging :: Page Fault In Nonpaged Area - Crash After Hibernation
Sep 22, 2013
For the past few days, my laptop has been crashing upon waking from hibernation. I initially thought it was a trojan or virus, but after poking around more I think its either a HD or driver issue. I installed Who Crashed and Blue Screen View, which mostly return ntoskrnl.exe, but have also thrown in tcpip.sys, AMPPAL.sys, and usbhub.sys. Asus Install seems to think I'm up to date on all the drivers, but after looking at some of these files, I'm not so sure. Dumps attached.
I have been getting the infamous BSOD when restarting my laptop with the error message of "page fault in nonpaged area". I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with an intel i3 2.40ghz processor, 6gb of ram and a 500gb hard drive.
It mostly happens when doing a system restart but occasionally happens
when booting up after the system has been shut down, I have uploaded the zip file that I got from running the SF Debug tool.
Basically about 3 weeks ago I had some computer issues, I figured it was a good time for a couple of upgrades so I replaced the Motherboard, Processor, Power Supply, and I had my Video Card RMA'd by EVGA (excessive coil whine)
I formatted the hard drive (it was a 300GB partition of a 1.5 TB Raid 0) and reinstalled windows 8 to the computer, everything seemed fine for about a week, I took my computer downstairs to hook it up to a TV so my family could watch some Hulu on the big screen and my computer started getting BSOD every few minutes.
I was unsure as to what was causing it so I reinstalled windows again. After the install I was still getting BSOD... so I went out and bought a SATA 120GB SSD and put it in as the primary Hard Drive and installed windows to that drive instead of onto the Raid partition. Same thing, more BSOD...
At this point I have reinstalled 4 times, I tried allowing Windows to fully update everything and tried turning all updates off and manually installing everything myself. More BSOD both ways... in fact at this point when I try to manually install the NVidia drivers they just Fail during the install and wont finish...
Given that the BSOD seem to be either Page Fault in Non Paged area and Bad Pool Header I figured it might be the RAM and ran a MemTest over night, unless I am reading it wrong there were no errors:
My current system specs are:
Full version Windows 8 Pro (not upgraded to 8.1) Intel i5-4670 CPU (about 3 weeks old) Gigabyte Z87X-HD3 Motherboard (about 3 weeks old) 2 2GB Corsair 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM (about 5 years old) EVGA Nvidia GTX 580 3GB video card (just got a RMA replacement about 3 weeks ago) SoundBlaster XFi PCIE card (About 5 years old) PCI 4 Drive SATA Raid Controller 120GB SSD Hard Drive (about 1 week old) 4 500 GB Seagate Barracuda single platter Hard drives (SATA, about 3 years old, 1 single and 3 in a Raid 0 Setup) Corsair TX 650M Power Supply (about 3 weeks old) DVD RW Drive (SATA, about 5 years old)
So, based on this wall of information, I am suspecting one of 3 things:
1. Might be corruption in the 8GB Thumb drive I am installing my Windows 8 from. ?
2. Might be something with drivers on the computer... after 4 clean reinstalls I don't see how this can be totally it but...
3. Some other hardware on my computer is causing the issue:
- On board sound conflicting with the soundblaster?
I update my PC on Windows 8.1 six month before, I works without any problems. And from two week ago I got a BSOD at each launch of my computer, I just need to shutdown him and it start normally but it took almost ten time longer.
I've got a problem - after I turn my notebook Asus M51Va into hybernation and then turn it on, usually (not always) it crashes with BSOD (hal.dll 0x0000009f). When I start system after turning it off - loading of Windows never ends with BSOD and everything is ok.
My system(HP pav-g6) is dual booted with win7 and win 8.1 I have installed all recommended drivers from HP and done all windows updates. I crash trying to wake from sleep. In win 7 this problem does not occur. Check disk, seatools, & memtest have already been completed with all passes.
Blue screen of death after installing comme view for wifi, issue - Microsoft Community
i installed software (comm view for wifi) but after that my pc is going to blue screen of death ,after that i unistalled the app but i see its look like comme view for wifi changed my wirless adaptor name to another name and my pc again its going to blue screen of death...
yesterday i was think that comme view for wifi not was unistalled complitly and i installed comme view for wifi again and deleted with software (perfect unistaller) but after that i see this new problems in my windows... many of my app is not showing but files of app still in c:/program files....
recycle bin folder is gone
change pc option is not opening
when i install new programs not coming with apps
i decided to refresh my pc after that most problem was fixed but i got diffrent bsod
the bsod came while i downloading big files like 100 mb from internet
I've installed win 8 consumer release not long ago, and the windows keep crash from time to time with and says to search for dpc watchdog violation for more info.
Aafter the PC is restarting it says that the problem was with memory.dmp.
At the beginning it happened once in a few weeks so I didn't care but now it happens more often which in not good! before the crash itself happens the PC freeze and make some weird buzz-like sound, sometime it keeps working after but sometime it crash.
I usually boot my machine in the morning, use it for a bit and then leave for work. After a time, the machine goes to sleep. About 5 or 6 hours latter, WMC wakes the machine to record a TV show. The recording never happens. When I get home, the machine is one but unresponsive with no display. The power button does not shut the machine down. I have to long hold the power button to kill the machine. In addition, if the machine sleeps for a shorter period and I wake it with the mouse, it crashes and restarts. I had to look at a log to find out that the machine restarted because, again, no display.
What I've done: Updated the BIOS sfc /scannow (revealed errors) ... /RestoreHealth (fixed errors) Drive and memory diagnostics Checked my problem against this forum which revealed other crash at wake threads but I'm not able to interpret the log file...
Computer has been recently crashing every so often. I update most of my driver, which at first seemed to fix the issue, but the BSOD started again. It also seems to crash when I am using IE11 desktop over Chrome but have not confirmed this yet.
Unknown Driver caused a system crash - igdkmd64.sys
Brand new Dell laptop - barley setup let alone used.
Graphics drivers & windows 8.1 service packs updated.
Appears to be graphics related and occurs when using apps that would require the higher performance settings only. Crashes appear to be seeming random and often occur when i'm not even in front of the computer can occur immediately starting an app or an hour later.
I am having regular problems with BSOD crashes when insert a USB storage device. The problem first arose following reinstalling windows and associated drivers. I have tried updating drivers and deleting and reinstalling the USB drivers but to no avail.
I attach a file containing recent data that is gathered from a crash.
I have solved this issue by not leaving my laptop plugged into my television through HDMI while it restarts to install updates. If you run into this issue, make sure you try leaving all ports open on your computer.
A few weeks ago my PC ran into a Blue screen of death error. I'm not sure why or exactly when it happened, but I think it may have led to the issues I have now. About 3 weeks ago (I think) I was playing a game and the forced restart to install updates thing popped up. It said I had 15 minutes before my system would restart and install updates. I was a bit cranky at the time, so I got mad and decided to look up on the internet how to disable forced restarts for windows 8. I came across a thread on a site much like this that explained how to open your system registry and delete the forced restart file or something similar.
I opened my registry and couldn't find it, so I ended up not deleting anything, but I did keep my registry open on accident and my computer restarted while it was open. It crashed during the update install and gave me a BSOD error. I restarted my computer and it began installing updates yet again. It got to 30% and then went black. A few seconds later, the Asus logo popped up with the loading circle below it. It said attempting to repair or something similar to that. It eventually failed to repair, so it asked if I would like to proceed with a system restore. Seeing no other options, I clicked yes. The screen went black again and the Asus logo showed up with the loading circle below it. It failed to system restore and took me to a blue screen that isn't the BSOD. It said there were other options like refreshing my system, and it assured me that I would not lose my files (but it said nothing about apps).
I decided to do that over the manufacturer restore. It worked, but I lost all of my apps that I had installed. After redownloading and installing all the apps, I thought it would be over. About a week later another windows update popped up. I thought it would work fine this time, so I let it go. The same thing happened, and I ended up having to system refresh again. This happens every time my computer restarts, and it is very aggravating. I'm not sure what to do about it, although I haven't tried to manufacturer restore yet.
TL/DR; My computer has to system refresh every time it restarts, causing me to lose all of my apps and have to reinstall them each time. I think it has something to do with my computer restarting to install updates while my system registry was open.
I wasn't sure what to provide for specs, so I'll just add in the usual Ram and stuff:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPU @ 1.80GHz 2.40 GHz Installed memory (RAM): 8.00GB (7.89 GB usable) System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor Pen and Touch: Full Windows Touch Support with 10 Touch Points
I added the SF_19-11-2013.rar file to the post because I just saw the requirements >.>
I purchased my cyberpowerpc from newegg.com back in June of 2013 and since I've received it I've had a number of BSOD issues including a hard crash that forced me to reload the OS from the partition, i'm at my whits end with it, I've recently ran a memory test with both Memtest86 and Memtest86+ and both came up with more errors then i can count... I haven't tried taking any memory sticks out because I've seen at least 6-8 variants to each BSOD error message and I'm not sure what can be wrong at this point...
