Hi, I've been getting the "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" BSoD when starting my PC. It flashes up just as the quicklaunch icons are loading on the taskbar, then my computer restarts. Getting the same problem when trying to do a system restore, and normal safe mode isn't launching, instead it hangs on:


(I may have screwed a bit of that up, I can't even read my own handwriting).

The only way I've even been able to see the BSoD before it disappears is to disable automatic system restart.


Here's a poor quality image of the BSoD:

Am running XP SP3 with 2GB RAM, nVidia 210 & Core2Duo 1.86GHz. Truly cutting edge, if it were 2002.


I've tried putting different RAM in and that didn't change anything, and also tried a different PSU as I've recently replaced it, but no help there either. I'm wondering if it could be linked to updating my Avast program, as that's the only significant change I made the night before it broke.



The only hope I have left is to take it to the local computer shop, but that costs money, so any help would be appreciated!
