Windows 7: Page fault in non paged area

Page fault in non paged area

I got a BSOD with this error description. I don't know what the culprit is but it is somehow related to RAM (whether it be hardware or a software's usage of RAM). The computer booted up just fine so I think it could be software specific. I was playing Zuma's Revenge at the time - it is not resource intensive so I don't know what would cause this issue.

Attached are the relevant files.

Hi Jalebi!

I can't see any minidump files in the one you uploaded. Please following this instruction instead to post your minidump, and also make sure you have set your system to create minidump:

upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Start your own thread in the "Crashes and Debugging" section of the forum and attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

Windows 7:
Go to Start and type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Startup and Recovery Settings button
Ensure that "Automatically restart" is unchecked
Under the Write Debugging Information header select "Small memory dump (64 kB)" in the dropdown box
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as "%systemroot%\Minidump" (without the quotes)
Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.

If you are using any program such as CCleaner, they may clean out your minidump folder, please double check that

Huh, that is odd. The minidump folder is empty even though I had a BSOD. I'm not using CCleaner or anything similar. Perhaps the BSOD was just a fluke.

This is a different BSOD I got but it also occured while gaming. It sounds like all this could be caused by a faulty driver, but I am no expert.

The message was:

Hey man, are you having Driver Verifier on, if so, please turn it off. There is not much that I can say from the dmp.

If my computer is booting up fine now, should I still turn off Verifier?

EDIT: nevermind, verifier was off I believe but I have now enabled it so that any culprits can be found

yes, based on the dmp you post, it looks like Driver Verifier is causing all of these

Oh, I thought it was disabled previously. I followed a tutorial on this site and set it up fresh. If the problem persists, I will disable it. Is it safe to do so?

I don't know, it's really up to you. You can either choose to turn it off or let it on to check if you are 100% free from any faulty device driver. If you turn on DV on 36 hours and no BSODs, go ahead and turn it off.

I've turned it off and so far no problems. Thank you for your help.
