Hello Bleeping computer

My 5 year old daughter managed to get on my destop the other day and started something running from the internet whilst looking for cartoons. The screen had frozen and i waited for a good 15 mins before turning off with the button on the front of the desktop. When i turned the PC back on it started cycling through the XP boot system, only very quickly flicking past the blue screen to start the cycle again. I managed to run my operating system disc by pressing F10 at startup and choosing CDrom. The disc started to run a repair on my PC then stopped at the blue screen, this is what it stated:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

0x00000050(0xC2340000,0x00000000,0x8043d403,0x00000000)

I forgot to mention that the PC boots to the safe mode option screen but none of the safe mode options work, they freeze whilst listing the drivers then again the XP boot screen starts again!!

If anyone could help that would be great!!
Thanks in advance

System manufacturer and model?

Do you have a MS Genuine XP CD?

If so, boot to the Recovery Console and try to run the chkdsk /r command.

Here's an explanation of the error message: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

You know how to get into Safe Mode, so when you see the Windows Advanced Menu, choose "Last Known Good Configuration". This will load an image of the operating system the last time it loaded properly.

hi louis/Xircal

Manufacturer - Gateway
Model - GM5048b dual core 64bit processor
System - Windows XP Professional

I have used my MS genuine XP CD to boot to the recovery console and pressed 'R' to repair - This starts to run then stops and the blue screen appears with the nonpaged area error.

When I turn the PC on it diverts straight to the Windows Advanced Menu stating "windows did not start successfully". If I choose "Last Known Good Configuration" the boot screen reappears then.... very quick blue screen and the PC restarts back to the boot screen and then the Windows Advanced Menu again. Very annoying.

Any help Would be appreciated
Thanks Mark

Please do the following:

Get a look at the error message presented by the BSOD (blue screen of death) ....
  • Start tapping the F8 key after you press the ON button, and continue tapping until you are presented with the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" screen.

    Posted Image
  • Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select "Disable automatic restart on system failure" and press the <ENTER> key.
  • Your system will attempt to restart normally, but when it crashes, it will not re-start: Instead, you will see a BSOD with error message.

    Posted Image
  • Record the error message details (contained in the areas outlined in red, in the above example image), and post in your reply.

Hi AustrAlien

I have tapped F8, entered into the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen and turned off automatic restart on system failure. On system reboot this is what came up on the BSOD:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

STOP: 0x00000050 (0xC20C0000, 0x00000000, 0x8053A923, 0x00000000)

Thanks for the help
Mark

Please sit tight and be patient.

I have requested that an experienced helper who specialises in malware-related un-bootable computers respond to your topic.

Thank you.

Hello,

Try this please. You will need a USB drive.

Download GETxPUD.exe to the desktop of your clean computer
  • Run GETxPUD.exe
  • A new folder will appear on the desktop.
  • Open the GETxPUD folder and click on the get&burn.bat
  • The program will download xpud_0.9.2.iso, and upon finished will open BurnCDCC ready to burn the image.
  • Click on Start and follow the prompts to burn the image to a CD.
  • Next download driver.sh to your USB drive
  • Remove the USB & CD and insert it in the sick computer
  • Boot the Sick computer with the CD you just burned
  • The computer must be set to boot from the CD
  • Gently tap F12 and choose to boot from the CD
  • Follow the prompts
  • A Welcome to xPUD screen will appear
  • Press File
  • Expand mnt
  • sda1,2...usually corresponds to your HDD
  • sdb1 is likely your USB
  • Click on the folder that represents your USB drive (sdb1 ?)
  • Confirm that you see driver.sh that you downloaded there
  • Press Tool at the top
  • Choose Open Terminal
  • Type bash driver.sh
  • Press Enter
  • After it has finished a report will be located on your USB drive named report.txt
  • Remove the USB drive and insert it back in your working computer and navigate to report.txt

    Please note - all text entries are case sensitive
Copy and paste the report.txt for my review

regards, Elise

Hi Mark,

You've only provided half the data required. Underneath where you see that series of digits, there should be the name of a file. In the screenshot AustrAlien provided, the file causing the problem is ati3diag.dll. Can you check your blue screen again and then post the name of the file shown on yours?

@ Xircal, in many cases the file name will not be present.

@ Funkydrunkmonkey, please see post #8 for more instructions.

regards, Elise

That may well be the case, but always wise to check. ;)

Hi Elise025

I have got this far:

Expand mnt
sda1,2...usually corresponds to your HDD
sdb1 is likely your USB

The problem is when I open mnt I can see sda1, but nothing else is in there. The USB stick is in the sick computer and the light is on the stick.

Thanks
mark
