Here are my system specs:
AMD 2200+
WinXP Pro SP2
760MB Ram
nVIDIA GForce 4 video

My computer will randomly shut down with either the page fault in non page area or driver not less of equal errors.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers for the video and usb.

I don't know what else to do.

Hi does your STOP error say this. :thumbsup:

A hardware driver or system service requested data that was not in memory, causing an exception error. The cause may be defective physical memory or incompatible software, especially remote control and antivirus programs. If the error occurs immediately after installing a device driver or application, try to use Safe Mode to remove the driver or uninstall the program. :flowers:

This is one of the most common STOP errors. This error typically occurs when a driver tries to access an improper memory address. Check for unsigned drivers, and be especially suspicious of recently installed or updated antivirus programs, disk utilities, and backup programs, which may install a faulty file-system filter driver.

That is what both those mean but if you can give more info of numbers before or after the above we can help you a bit more. :trumpet:

Those were the correct messages. I'll get the numbers the next time that it does it. It is a mystery to me because I haven't installed anything recently. This just happened out of the blue!! I got into bios yesterday and reset to defaults and it hasn't happened since. I also re-installed my USB 2.0 drivers and video drivers from the original disk. We'll see how long it lasts.

Sounds like bad RAM (memory). My sister in law's was doing the same thing and I popped in a new stick of ram and it fixed it. I ram memtest for about 10 minutes and it had 48 errors with her old ram in. After the new ram it ran for an hour without errors.
