Windows 7: Bsod page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

Bsod page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

Hello everybody. While I was browsing and doing an update to battlefield 3 I encountered a BSOD PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. My OS is WIN 7 PRO 64bit and a 3 days old. Before I installed it I had win 7 installed from the day it was released. During the past 2-3 weeks I had many BSODs and decided to format to fix this and sadly I haven't kept my old minidumps. I have ran memtest+ for 8 passes and no problems at all as well as ran sfc /scannow. I have a feeling that EA's origin is the culprit or (hopefully not) my ssd. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Sorry for my bad English, it's not my native language.

Damn, it happened again this time with a memory management BSOD while I was running Microsoft security essentials and downloading the latest official ATI driver...
I attached the dump file...

I checked my SSD firmware and it is the latest. As for the other driver I can't find a thing in the Western Digital site. Btw, I was running a full scan in Microsoft Security Essentials and it BSODed...after the restart chkdsk came up and found corrupt files which it supposedly repaired. I ran sfc /scannow and found errors. I attach the latest minidump, cbs.log and system health report. Thanks again

P.S. I installed the latest official Ati Catalyst Driver 11.12 with the driver sweeper method and then directX

What settings did you adjust when building or installing your RAM?
With more than 4GB RAM you may need to adjust settings, since you have 16GB RAM let's look at this first.

Can you download CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.
For posting the information , enter 'Snipping tool' in the Start button > Search box, hit enter. Select the area you want to post and save to a convenient place.

Have you been checking your temperatures?
Use Real Temp , to check the CPU temps when at idle, under load and/or testing.
Let us know the minimum and maximum temps you get.

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages are.
This is important in order to make RAM settings adjustments.

Thanks for your reply. Here are my cpuz screeshots and here are the temps after half an hour of prime95+...

CPU CORE: 1.296
CPU I/O: 1.344
DRAM: 1.488

I used prime with default clocks also and it was about 5 C cooler...

I also searched about my ssd, OCZ VERTEX 3 and found quite a few problems with the previous firmware but I updated it to the latest before installing Windows 7


UPDATE: I just found out that MSI has a newer bios version for my mb and I flashed it. In the changelog it says that it improves memory compatibility. I have to go to work now. I'll leave my pc on while I'm away and run a Microsoft Security Essentials full system scan (always got a blue screen with that) and post my results when I get back

Ok, after I got back my pc was still on and the scan found no errors. I did a chkdsk and no problems, played a little L.A. Noire and it worked perfect. I ran sfc /scannow and all was good and finally ran memtest overnight and got no errors (all of the above with the system OCed to 4.4 ghz). I'll try some more testing when I get back from work and report, hopefully it was just the previous bios acting up. Any suggestions about I should test my pc for instabilities ( I also ran some hdd benches like atto etc). I'm going to ran 3dmark, furmark, play a little bf3 and staff like that. Anyway, thank you all guys you were great help. I will wait till tonight and if all is good (fingers crossed) I'll change the thred status to resolved.

Btw, how do I +rep someone for helping me like dave76's signature suggests?

Dave76, any comments about my voltages? From all the guides I read, I believe I'm well within the CPU's safety limits
