Thread: WinXP Page Fault blue screens

    I have recently constructed a new machine with the following primary specs:

    P4-3.0Ghz (800MHz FSB)
    2 x 512MB Corsair TwinX3200LL Dual Channel DRAM
    Gigabyte 8KNXP motherboard (AC97 audio)
    80GB 7200RPM WD IDE HDD (768MB pagefile)
    GeForce4 Ti4200 (nVidia 53.03 drivers)
    Windows XP Professional SP1 (fully updated)

    Since running it for the last two weeks, I am getting random blue screen crashes with the following

    message:

    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    It also has an associated memory address (not always the same) and a filename (which also changes).

    Some of the filenames I have seen include:

    NTFS.SYS
    DXG.SYS
    NV4_DISP.DLL

    I have run full memory diagnostics using Memtest-86, Microsoft Memory Diagnostic and DocMem. I found

    what appears to be faults in one DRAM chip so removed it and ran the single good chip, but the problem

    has recurred.

    Does anyone have any advice or ideas on the cause/remedy???

    There is no point in posting this thing twice in two different forums!

    DXG and NV4 is your direct x and your nvidia driver, Try resintalling directx9 and your video card drivers. I am wondering if this occurs when you play games?

    exactly, one thread will do it, the other has been deleted.

    With that Corsair memory it's likely that ya need to apply some more voltage to it and 2.8v won't hurt it.

    Wiggo,

    Why do you say that re Corsair ram? Is there something specific about it that requires that voltage?

    I have had a reply on another forum stating that this Gigabyte motherboard doesn't like corsair ram and that switching to Kingston solves it.

    I work with a lot of Corsair modules and know that they do like a bit of voltage but yes it's also possible that the mobo doesn't like it though I've never heard of it.

    tried switching page file "off" and then switching it "on" again?

    Thanks.

    I have now discovered a specific incompatibility between the Gigabyte G8KNXP motherboard and Corsair RAM (www.asktheramguy.com). I am currently trialling it with the latest BIOS update from Gigabyte.
