Windows 7: BSOD page fault in nonpaged area

BSOD page fault in nonpaged area


I've started getting BSODs with page_fault_in_nonpaged_area errors. I've also noticed that a lot of my webpages on chrome have been crashing lately.

Any help would be appreciated!

Welcome to the forums Syssana,

BugCheck 50, {fffff68100002088, 0, fffff800030ec2d2, 5}

Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiUpdateWsle+122 )
Usual causes:  Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus,  Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS
This bugcheck indicates device drivers have been referencing invalid memory addresses and performing read operations. We can see that a region of virtual memory which was marked non-pageable was referenced and a illegal page fault occurred.

You seem to have only 163 Windows Updates installed, I have around 205 Windows Updates installed, please check for any potential Windows Updates which will improve the security and stability of your system.
  1. Start
  2. Type: Windows Update
  3. Check for Updates/Install Updates
  4. Reboot (if prompted)

Daemon Tools uses a driver called sptd.sys, which is known to cause BSODs with Windows 7. It is recommend you remove this program, and use Windows own in-built features or ImgBurn.
