I'm using Windows XP with SP3, and have experienced continual BSOD problems during Start Up, but I have recently found that instead of Turning Off the computer at end-session, I can Hibernate, and completely avoid experiencing the BSOD.
Maybe someone can explain why this is the case. Perhaps it avoids the occurrence of events that lead to the BSOD, so it would help to know what they might be.
My BSOD messages were reading as follows: (Omitting the usual warning sentences.)
"Page fault in non-paged area"
A typical address line would be
0xE2F67000, 0X00000000, 0X804D92C2, 0X00000001, or, 0xE2F7D000, 0X00000000, 0X804D92C2, 0X00000001, or with some further variations in the 3rd group.
The BSOD and memory dump to hard disk could repeat two to three times before the system would manage to start successfully. And, it could occur at any point during the start-up, from after the p/w prompt until the final desktop items were loading up.
I use Malwarebyte's Anti Malware, and it gives me a clean bill of health. I frequently use AShampoo 7 facilities to clean up, and to control start-up activities.
Any comments and references would be helpful - thanks.
