Windows 7: BSOD shortly after boot: ntoskrnl.exe, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

15 Jul 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
BSOD shortly after boot: ntoskrnl.exe, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

I just finished assembling a new computer on Friday (re-using most of the components from my old one, but new case, CPU and graphics card). The problem started on Tuesday evening.

Windows boots as normal, but less than 5 minutes in, it bluescreens, showing the message "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". I see a reference to mpfilter.sys on the bluescreen, but looking at it now in BlueScreenView, it says ntoskrnl.exe is the culprit.

CPU is an AMD FX6350, graphics card EVGA GTX 960 2GB and motherboard M5A78L-M/USB3 in case any of that is relevant.

I'm currently in safe mode with networking and it's been running fine for about half an hour after boot.

There are three dumps in your logs, all 0x50 and none are showing anything I can see that's pointing to the issue. The best bet here would be to test the RAM to rule it out.

Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Note   Note

Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM.

Uninstall Daemon Tools, a proven cause of BSODs.

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools via Add/Remove Programs.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and perform the following steps.
3. Double click the executable to open it.
4. Click the button shown below.

If the button it is grayed out as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system and you can just close the window.

Free up the Startup. All you need starting with Windows is your AV, 26 programs in Startup is ridiculous. They can all be started on demand as and when needed.

I've removed Daemon Tools and significantly cut down the number of startup programs.

I'll try rebooting into normal mode and I'll give Memtest a try if it bluescreens again.

Try MemTest86+ as soon as you can, ruling out the RAM will go a long way to solving the BSOD.

Alright, it's running now and it looks like it'll take a while, so I guess I'll leave it on overnight.

In the meantime: I posted about this on Reddit earlier and they mentioned that sometimes an OS reinstall can solve problems that arise after a CPU replacement. Seeing as this only started occurring four days after the upgrade, do you think that could be the problem?

I believe it's related to mpfilter.sys (a driver of Microsoft security essentials). I have the same BSOD, only it happens every 7 minutes, on 2 computers on the network. I first uninstalled MSE, and verified that there are no more BSOD. I then reinstalled MSE - and so far no BSOD, but it's too early to tell yet. If it continues I'll have to find a new AV program.

Memtest came up completely clear.

I'd read about the problem with MSE and I disabled it at startup, and it still bluescreened. I'll try uninstalling when I get home.

Can you upload new logs to capture the latest BSOD. I'll be extremely surprised if MSE is to blame.

Mpfitler.sys belongs to MSE. After uninstalling MSE the perpetual BSOD stopped. After reinstalling it returned. I now use AVG and no BSODs. The proof is in the puding.

I know full well what mpfilter.sys belongs to, and you've read in another thread that Windows Updates could have been to blame, not MSE itself. Uninstalling a program is not debugging the problem and proves nothing, others who encountered the problem found other avenues to explore and still have MSE running without issue. The proof is in black and white.
