Windows 7: BSOD in Sony Vaio with KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

BSOD in Sony Vaio with KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

PROBLEM: I own a Sony Vaio, Model VPCEH25EN purchased in 2011, warranty expired. From last couple of months, I am having intermittent Blue screen issue, often with a KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I first tried a Windows Update and Vaio Update to update all drivers, but it did not help. Then I removed all data from my hard drive and did a factory setting from Vaio Care, that did not help either. Rather BSOD is happening more frequently. I also run CHKDSK and Vaio Hardware Diagnostics; they run without errors. Sometimes when I restart after a BSOD, I do see an "Operating System Not Found" or a Disk error but that is uncommon; most often it restarts as normal (except usual warning that the system was not shut down properly). My feeling is Blue Screen occurs when I try multitasking e.g. opening several tabs in browser or opening something when a program is running for long. Also, the laptop has become slower in general.

I was about to give up until I find this forum. Find attached the DUMP file obtained using Forum instructions. Please excuse me if I have been naive or unclear, I will be happy to provide more details as needed. Thanks!

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.
Arguments:
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff8800f3c4d85, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff88008c66f88, Exception Record Address

Thanks; I am going to do that now. One question: Is it okay to download drivers from vaio website for my laptop model. For some reason, I do not see NVIDIA GEFORCE 410m drivers on nvidia website earlier. Also, I was checking, when I see "operating system not found" error, bios do not see Hard Disk drive (HDD). But as I said, it doesnt happen very often. Is it likely a HDD failure or some loose connection issue?

Sounds like a hard drive failure.

Try reseating the Power and Sata cables.

Await the snips from Speccy & Crystal Disk.

Find attached the output of Speecy and CrystalDisk. I am going to run the Hard Disk diagnostic now and will update on that later. Thanks again!

Thanks, so does it mean Hard Disk has not failed?

I am still trying to run the hard drive diagnostics, I have a Hitachi HDD, for some reason the WinDFT is not allowing me to run diagnostics on primary drive. But I had run CHKDSK and Vaio hardware diagnostics and had no errors. I have reinstalled the NVIDIA drivers, no blue screen so far. So far so good, will update when I get blue screen again.

Give Seatools a shot.

Hard drive test both short and long with: Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.


Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
information   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Tip   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

I did run a Long Generic Test from Seatools and the Hard Drive passed the test. Does that mean that the disk failure is very unlikely? I was doing some more web-search on this and seemingly re-seating hard drive might solve the issue. I need to try that with memtest86+ too ( wanted to avoid opening the laptop cover so far)

Yes you could try re-seating the hard drive.
