Hi

 

As per the title, i was locked out of my PC for a while except safe mode with an 0X50 error page fault in non paged area everytime startup was loading, having, tried diagnostic boot mode still did the same, run CHKDSK and having no luck i got a bit stuck as there were no System restore entries for some reason... eventually i remembered that there was another account on the computer and logged in using that. I ran SFC/scannow and nice and easy i got back into the main account.

 

Now i am back in the main account i cannot Network - i Have a cable from office PC to a shop till which is also on XP:

  • The Internet is via a wireless dongle through Office PC
  • Network Bridge carries Internet to Till
  • Connection to till mainly carries database from SQL Server and associated back office software and translates it onto the Till structure via connection software

As it stands i cannot connect through the Local area connection from Office to till - and the IP Address will not renew (in the IP Protocol  the automatically assign buttons are checked) Ipconfig release / renew times out

 

THE SQL Sever 2005 Management studio express when loading just says Package 'Microsoft SQL management studio package' failed to load Click OK and it says the same thing with a red cross, click OK again and it closes.

 

At the same time as this SQL wont load, the software we use as back office, which used the SQL database cant load as it cannot locate the version record.

 

I have also once come across an error whilst trying to get SQL working that the .NET framework V4 is not available - having seen this i tried a repair which it would not allow.

 

Someone recommended i try Wise registry cleaner - having run it 3 times it always crashes with an 0X50 Page fault in non paged area when scanning File types? but not at the same registry entry otherwise i may have had an idea what to look at.

 

I feel that urgently i need to solve the Networking issue, then maybe with some remote help with our SQL guys over the internet i can get it all fixed

 

Thanks in advance for the help

 

George

That error usually relates to a driver or RAM issue.

Have you connected any new hardware recently?

If so, uninstall and reinstall that to see if that solves it.

If not, do a RAM check with memtest. You can download memtest from http://www.memtest.org/#downiso.

I have recently had this error on a computer and it turned out to be a faulty stick of RAM.

Please go back and review the Speccy instructions.

 

The net result should be the posting of a link...not the pasted content that you came up with.

 

I have removed your posted content from Speccy.

 

Thank you.

 

Louis

Thanks, that works smile.png.

 

Everything on Speccy looks good to me.

 

Your SQL and clock errors...may be intertwined, not sure how well Windows does when the system clock is possibly inaccurate.

<<THE SQL Sever 2005 Management studio express when loading just says Package 'Microsoft SQL management studio package' failed to load Click OK and it says the same thing with a red cross, click OK again and it closes>>

 

SQL and other similar programs depend on MS.NET functioning properly.  I would uninstall all versions of MS.NET and then reinstall pertinent versions needed, just to bypass the possibilitiy of file corruption in NET.

 

I have no answers...just things I would try in an effort to pin down these various problems.

Almost forgot...

 

<<Someone recommended i try Wise registry cleaner...>>

 

Bad suggestion, usually made by those who assume that there is some way to overcome every possible problem...easily smile.png.

 


Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

  • Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

    The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.

  • Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

  • Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

  • Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.

  • The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.
