When I try to boot my laptop, I continue to receive the PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA Blue Screen message. The technical information at the bottom states *** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xE55F7720, 0x00000000, 0x8A8c6510, 0x00000002). I also get this message when trying to boot in safe mode. Operating system is Windows XP Professional. Please help!

Not sure if this is the right forum for this post or if it needed to go under a different topic. Any help is greatly appreciated.

What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

Nothing that I can think of. Only thing that I really know of was a windows update.

Please try to run MemTest and see if any errors are found.

Okay. Just to rule out the possibility of the update causing the problem I suggest you uninstall that last update. You can always reinstall it later.

elise025: I ran MemTest and received the "Pass Complete, no errors, press ESC to exit" message.

Allan: How do I uninstall the update? I can't even boot the machine? Every time I restart, I get the BSOD.

Also, I remember getting a message about a generic host program shutting down or something along those lines right before the first BSOD. Maybe that helps.

Did you install this update immediately before the problem started and do you remember what update it was?

No. It was not installed immediately prior to this BSOD. It was installed a couple of weeks ago and there were multiple updates. Around 20 or so as I remember. It didn't run the same after and I also noticed a few times that when I did a search in google that when I clicked the link, I was redirected elsewhere.

Okay, that helps! At what point does the BSOD occur? Do you still see the XP splash screen?

Do you have your XP CD at hand?

I see the XP splash screen, then I get the BSOD. No, unfortunately, I do not have the XP CD.

Please download ARCDC from Artellos.com.
  • Double click ARCDC.exe
  • Follow the dialog until you see 6 options. Please pick: Windows Professional SP2 & SP3
  • You will be prompted with a Terms of Use by Microsoft, please accept.
  • You will see a few dos screens flash by, this is normal.
  • Next you will be able to choose to add extra files. Select the Default Files.
  • The last window will allow you to burn the disk using BurnCDCC
Your ISO is located on your desktop.

  • Insert the CD you just created into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

  • If your PC is not booting from the CD, you need to change the boot order:
    • Restart your PC
    • As soon as you get an image, press the Setup key. This is usually F2, or Del. On some machines the key can also be a different one. It should, however, be stated on the screen which key is the setup key.
    • Once you enter the computer's BIOS, use the arrow keys and tab key to move between elements. Press enter to select an item to change.
    • Navigate to the tab, where you can set the boot order. It should be called Boot or Boot order
    • The tab should now show your current boot order.
      If the CD-drive is not at the top, please navigate to the CD-Rom drive with the keys arrows. Then move it to the top of the list. The keys for switching boot position are usually + to move up and - to move down. However they can be different, but they should be stated in the help, so that you can find them easily.
    • Once the CD-drive is on top of the boot order, navigate to Exit and select Exit saving changes.
  • Your PC should now boot from your XP-CD.
    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  • When prompted to choose a windows installation, type 1 and press enter.
  • When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

  • A command prompt will open

Type fixmbr and press enter. Note - if you are using drive encryption, do NOT do this, but instead post back here.

Type exit and press enter in order to reboot. Let me know how things are now.

regards, Elise

I typed in fixmbr and received the following:
** CAUTION **
This computer appears to have a non-standard or invalid master boot record.
FIXMBR may damage your partition tables if you proceed.
This could cause all the partitions on the current hard disk to become inaccessible.
If you are not having problems accessing your drive, do not continue.
Are you sure you want to write a new MBR?

How do I proceed?

Unless you have a dual boot setup or use drive encryption, you can just continue there.
