I suddenly got a bsod that said "page fault in nonpaged area". Now whn I open my computer, it just freezes at the eMachines loading page (huge e, boot menu, bios settings) and the image is distorted. How do I fix my computer

Try booting in safe mode?

If you can...sounds like bad video drivers from what you've posted thus far.

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Can't boot into safe mods. It freezes the SECOND its turned on. (the image is distorted)
Is it because of bad RAM? If it is, I can get new RAM soon.

Well...I've had bad RAM one time...and the screen display was very distorted and dark when I tried to boot. I don't know if you are experiencing the same thing, but what made you ask about RAM?

Hi -

and the image is distorted

The last time this sort of thing occured on mine (I called it Pixilated/Distorted) it was the power supply unit -
Replaced that and it solved my problem -
Just a "by the way" statement -

I mean the power supply unit inside the computer was faulty - But yours may be something else ??
A repair shop replaced the unit and that fixed mine -
Please also stay with any ideas from Hamluis -
Thank You -

At this point...no one can say what it will take to fix whatever is wrong. You've provided a minimal amount of information...and the world of computing just is not as simple as we might like.

How about running BlueScreenView from safe mode?

I would remove the hard drive...place it in a USB enclosure...and then connect it to a different system...and run chkdsk /r on that drive.
