Windows 7: BSoD on startup, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

27 Jun 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

So yesterday, my Lenovo Y480 laptop froze completely while browsing reddit. Completely, as in not responding to mouse movement, CTRL+ALT+DEL, or even shutdown commands. So I forced shutdown by holding power, and as it restarted I was prompted to run Startup Repair. I did so, a system restore was automatically performed, and despite taking nearly 6 minutes to do so, the computer eventually started normally.

Same freezing issue happens today, so I force shutdown, restart, and am prompted to do startup repair again only this time, no system restore occurs, and now I get a BSoD when starting Windows normally. Further attempts to run startup repair result in a failure message, and both Memory diagnostic and chkdsk have come up with no issues.

Obviously not a hardware problem, both safe mode and a copy of Ubuntu installed on a separate partition can access the windows partition fine, and as far as I know I haven't done anything recently that could have caused this, but its looking like my only option for recovery at this point is a reinstall, and I don't want to go through that just yet.

Diagnostic info in attatchments, anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Solved: Uninstalling Avast! and Daemon Tools Lite seems to have done the trick.
