My problem:


PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA....ntoskrnl.exe :eek:


My setup:


AMD Athlon XP 2600+ (barton)

Corsair Platinum C2 PC3200 DDR

Maxtor 40 GB

Geforce 2 MX


Windows 2000 Pro SP4 (up-to-date) / Windows server 2003 <-- same partition. :p:


After running ok for 3 months, I got this error about 10 seconds after logging in: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.... ntoskrnl.exe. Safe mode works. Windows 2003 boots normally, MEMTEST 86 ran for 6 hours, without results. I searched every corner of google AND GoT. Nothing except people who kept telling me that my ram-bar had to be broken.


Please help me. I am on the edge of despair. :evil:

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/Optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

TwinX1024 or TwinX512-3200C2

CPU Freq: 133 MHz (266 FSB)

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 125%

Resulting Frequency: 166 MHz (333 FSB)

Memory Timing: User Define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

DDR Reference Voltage: 2.7 Volts

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI (9200 or 9600) or NVIDIA (5200 or 5700) then 1.6 Volts suggested!*

All other settings are motherboards defaults

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
