BSOD - Bad Pool Header and Page Fault in Non Paged Area

Q: BSOD - Bad Pool Header and Page Fault in Non Paged Area


I am very new to the forums and was browsing around looking at other people with similar problems and thought I would post up my issues and see if anyone can help point me in the right directions. I have a couple of ideas but I am unsure if I am right...

I have attached the ZIP of the SF Diagnostic Tool to this post now

Basically about 3 weeks ago I had some computer issues, I figured it was a good time for a couple of upgrades so I replaced the Motherboard, Processor, Power Supply, and I had my Video Card RMA'd by EVGA (excessive coil whine)

I formatted the hard drive (it was a 300GB partition of a 1.5 TB Raid 0) and reinstalled windows 8 to the computer, everything seemed fine for about a week, I took my computer downstairs to hook it up to a TV so my family could watch some Hulu on the big screen and my computer started getting BSOD every few minutes.

I was unsure as to what was causing it so I reinstalled windows again. After the install I was still getting BSOD... so I went out and bought a SATA 120GB SSD and put it in as the primary Hard Drive and installed windows to that drive instead of onto the Raid partition. Same thing, more BSOD...

At this point I have reinstalled 4 times, I tried allowing Windows to fully update everything and tried turning all updates off and manually installing everything myself. More BSOD both ways... in fact at this point when I try to manually install the NVidia drivers they just Fail during the install and wont finish...

Given that the BSOD seem to be either Page Fault in Non Paged area and Bad Pool Header I figured it might be the RAM and ran a MemTest over night, unless I am reading it wrong there were no errors:

Attachment 40306

My current system specs are:

Full version Windows 8 Pro (not upgraded to 8.1)
Intel i5-4670 CPU (about 3 weeks old)
Gigabyte Z87X-HD3 Motherboard (about 3 weeks old)
2 2GB Corsair 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM (about 5 years old)
EVGA Nvidia GTX 580 3GB video card (just got a RMA replacement about 3 weeks ago)
SoundBlaster XFi PCIE card (About 5 years old)
PCI 4 Drive SATA Raid Controller
120GB SSD Hard Drive (about 1 week old)
4 500 GB Seagate Barracuda single platter Hard drives (SATA, about 3 years old, 1 single and 3 in a Raid 0 Setup)
Corsair TX 650M Power Supply (about 3 weeks old)
DVD RW Drive (SATA, about 5 years old)

So, based on this wall of information, I am suspecting one of 3 things:

1. Might be corruption in the 8GB Thumb drive I am installing my Windows 8 from. ?
2. Might be something with drivers on the computer... after 4 clean reinstalls I don't see how this can be totally it but...
3. Some other hardware on my computer is causing the issue:
- On board sound conflicting with the soundblaster?
- RAID controller?
- Bad GPU / VRAM?

I am going to start trying to figure it out and was hoping someone could give me pointers.

ANY help is very very very very very welcome!

Thank you!

Preferred Solution: BSOD - Bad Pool Header and Page Fault in Non Paged Area

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Recently had my work laptop upgraded to Windows 7 from XP. Everything worked fine for one week. Then I started getting the BSOD error " Bad pool header". My computer will repeatedly shut down to protect windows. I notified my IT department and they believe that I corrupted the hard drive, as I have local admin rights. they provided me with a loaner computer and loaded my backup system on to this laptop. Worked great for a week and then again started getting " bad pool header and new error "page fault in non paged area. They believe I again corrupted the hard drive. The only software I installed is a program I use for work "Form Max" which other users have been using successfully in Windows 7. I used the DM log and have attached the dump files. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Any help on this would be appreciated - the PC crashes on boot (during the 'loading windows' screen) if I try and do a normal boot. Safe mode works, but then I get Bad Pool Error if I try and browse to any complex website (simply stuff works, but this one doesn't, for example - I assume it's Javascript or Flash crashing it).

Plus running many applications (including Notepad) leads directly to a Page-fault in non-paged area result.

Things I've tried: full scans with Avast and Malwarebytes, startup recovery console from the disc and all the options there including Startup Repair multiple times and SFC -scannow, error checking the drive with chkdsk and Partition Magic.

I tried driver verifier, but that was when the computer would still boot, it stopped it booting entirely (the earlier dmp files will be from that, the ones from today in safe mode), and it took some fixing to get as far as safe mode, so reluctant to try it again.

I'm at something of a loss, I can't even look at the dmp files myself as trying to run the Windbg install tool crashes the PC, and I don't have a second Windows machine. And I can't do an in-place re-install as that's not allowed from safe mode...

Welcome to SF deanlove .

I'm currently forming a general idea based on the dump files but I need more information.

Unfortunately files are missing, so I'm not getting the full picture.
Please run the SFDT again and let it run its course it can take 15min at times to collect all the data necessary.
There should be eight files generated not including the dumps.

Please upload the MSINFO32 file:

Start → Run → type MSINFO32 then hit Enter.
In MSINFO32 go to, File → Save → name it your user-name.
Once the file is saved right click it and choose Send to → Compressed (zipped) folder.

Attach the file in your next post.

Hey guys,
I've learned quite a bit from these forums now by lurking and finally got my debugging tools working right with the symbols and all.
Anyways, I wanted some second opinions on these dumps.
Here's info on the system:

-x64 Embedded (App compatibility template) ?
- 3 weeks old, unused hardware, fresh install.
Im guessing it's memory and not driver related because I get these errors:

Invalid system memory was referenced. This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe. Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Could not read faulting driver name

The pool is already corrupt at the time of the current request.
This may or may not be due to the caller.
The internal pool links must be walked to figure out a possible cause of
the problem, and then special pool applied to the suspect tags or the driver
verifier to a suspect driver.
Seems like both of those are related to memory.
I've also got some memory corruption errors too.

Thanks in advance for any input on these. Curious if i'm on the right track.

I started my computer in windows 7(64x) itself when the program and start buttons are about to be clickable, suddenly fel out with BSOD with BAD POOL HEADER: so i started my computer in safe mode and began searching for a solution on the forum. I came across information that it might be because of recent updates.

There were no recently installed programs, only 2 windows updates form 4 and 5 day's ago on 27 and 28 januari. So me thinking to be smart i deleted those two updates in the Control panel-Software.

Now when i start my computer i get the BSOD page fault in nonpage area. Searched for a solution but all of the problems have a error code mine only has a stop code:
0x00000050 (0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF3, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF8000316A56D,0x000000000000000)

i added my minidump in a rar file

it's my girlfriends laptop and she really needs it for school. So i would be blessed if somebody would help me

Hi guys,

A couple of days after i bought my laptop (maybe 4 months ago)I've been experiencing BSOD's. At first it was once a day, until it turns several crashes a day (like maybe 15 crashes). I cant tolerate it anymore so i brought it to a service center. They fixed the issue, they said it's because of a virus. But after a few days, crashes came back, i noticed that when i leave my laptop on without doing nothing(i don't know if IDLE is the correct term)it crashes. I cant remember the error of the first crash but i think its about the memory until yesterday its about "page fault in non paged area". when i turn on my laptop it keeps crashing and crashing and wont go to the desktop unless i use safe mode.

Here are my specs which i copied from the report SF Diagnostic tool generated

A:BSOD - page fault in non paged area

This device is disabled. Is it deliberate? If so, why?

VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter ROOT\NET\0000 This device is disabled.

I would suggest that you uninstall it - but if it's needed, please enable it and update it's drivers. Feel free to disable it again after updating the drivers.

Out of 46 memory dumps there were 11 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

Please remove the Western Digital software. It's driver (wdcsam64.sys) dates form 2008 and is known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver... Read more

I am very clumsy with PCs, I tried browsing the forum and I found so many different variations of solutions for this problem, I just don't know what to do.
I reinstalled windows 7 x64 recently and bought a new hard disk. Everything seemed fine for a while, and I bought a wireless adapter. After some time working on my PC I get BSOD saying page-fault in non-paged area. I checked if my hard disk is corrupted and it seemed fine, I suspect its either drivers, but I don't know how to check which are problematic and how to fix them, or it could be memory, tho I never had problems with it before. I have no clue what to do about it and its driving me mad.

three months after i built my own device i started to get BSODs on two months basis

I did a lot of things to overcome this problem like restoring, formatting, updating drivers and bios

lately, i discovered that my ram settings were so wrong

in the attachment u will find both the old and the current one ( i changed them manually)


for one month i was free

then the problem reappear and this month was the worst (3 or 4 times)

also two new strange things like the screen goes black then reappear saying that the graphic card was shut down and recovered

sometimes i started to hear noisy voice on booting that disappear after a couple minutes

I started to think that the problem is a hardware one so what do u advice me?

A:BSOD (Page Fault in Non Paged Area)

I've seen this BSOD in conjunction with various issues. The most common being the RAM. After you get a BSOD, immediately run a memtest. You can download a memtest for free from memtest.org. If the test fails, shut down your machine and leave it off for a good 20 to 30 minutes to let everything cool to room temp. Boot the machine back up again straight to memtest. If it passes, then you might have a heat problem with your RAM.

For some reason the link you posted is just taking me to a blank OCZ page. It isn't showing me any parts. If you could provide a part number for your modules, and what motherboard you are installing these into, it might help with the troubleshooting.

Lately I've been getting a BSOD with error message PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA. This happens pretty much at random as I'm surfing the net and is very frustrating as I have to do a full reboot every time it happens. Any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix it?

To help diagnose the problem, I've linked to a zip file with the minidump from the crash (found in c:/windows/minidump) and all of the critical errors and errors from the windows event viewer.

I recently Formatted my Packard Bell XP (SP3) Desktop using the Packard Bell partition to revert back to factory settings. Everything worked ok and things were running fine until I suddenly got a BSOD, saying there was a corrupt or missing Windows Config file (Not sure if it's connected but I did a forced shutdown prior to this).
I checked all connections, RAM, Graphics etc and all seemed ok, I was unable to get into any recovery or safe mode options so I then used my Packard Bell Recovery DVD to reinstall everything.
The recovery appeared to be going well and all the files loaded but when the system goes through the 'Windows Burnin' stage it goes to the BSOD 'Page Fault in non Paged area'
I have tried reinstalling numerous times but still no go, I've checked HD for errors and tried different RAM and Graphics.
As a last resort I thought I would load the Linux OS into the same partition as XP, it was all accepted and the OS is working fine!
This leads me to believe that my Hardware is all OK?
Is there anyway I can check any corrupt Windows files whilst logged into Linux, or am I obliged to purchase another Windows operating System and hope it installs?
Many thanks.

Hello forums. I have had a BSOD issue for quite sometime, in an area I would say of about a year. It has been very minor, a crash every few weeks, and only when playing games, such as dota 2. Recently, the crashes have been becoming more common place and frequent. 3-4 times a day, and even every time I run specific games. I have always had a suspicion that my ram was going bad, but after running the windows memory test, with only 2 passes mind you; it came up error free. I'm done dealing with this, and i'm going to commit as much time was I need to fix this. I can't have this issue popping up when Uni starts up in a few weeks.

Cheers, Jesse.

you may be right on this one, but you will need to run memtest for more passes than 2, 6-8 is usually the amount you want.

Hi guys. I recently built my own computer and just got my first BSOD, a few days into use. The error screen flagged cdd.dll, with the reason Page fault in non paged area.

As a little background, I had been playing Portal 2 while in a Steam voice chat. Also (actively) running was Rainmeter, Skype and Chrome. The crash occurred when exiting Portal 2.

As this is a new build, all drivers should be up to date (grabbed from the manufacturer websites). However any help is appreciated.

I've included a dump of the files the Windows dialog pointed me to on reboot.

Recommendations:Crashes are likely caused by your NETGEAR WG111v3 54Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter. USB wireless network adapters are known to cause blue screen crashes. USB ports do not supply reliable power support for these devices. Couple that with your out of date driver for the device, and you are nearly guaranteeing that you have crashes. I would advise replacing the USB adapter with a PCI wireless network adapter to provide better support and stability. If you are unable to do so, then make sure the drivers for the device are up to date and supported within Windows 7; yours are pre-Windows 7.

When I came back and booted it up for the first time it immediately gave me a cpu overtemp warning and blue screened. After that it has been blue screening once or twice every single day with the new error message "Page fault in non-paged area". It has never again given me a cpu overtemp warning, just the page fault BSOD. The blue screens seem to be completely unrelated to what I am doing at the time. I have blue screened while playing various games, watching netflix, and also while I was doing absolutely nothing with just the desktop up. I googled the issue and tried every fix I could find which was to first update every driver known to man kind, which had no effect on the BSODs. The second suggestion was that it may be an issue with my RAM. I ran a memtest86 test for about 5 hours which produced absolutely zero errors. I also tried cleaning out my computer, dusting it off etc. to no avail. I cannot find any other solutions anywhere.

Hi Leur and welcome to sevenforums, I hope you'll enjoy your stay here!

Could you please upload the minidump files located here:


Here are some methods that have worked for some people!

Method 1 ? Adjust Paging File

To start off, you can try a simple trick with the paging file that fixes the issue for some folks. If the issue is not hardware related, then this page file solution might just work.
First, open the Control Panel and click on System. You can also right-click on Computer or This PC and choose Properties.

Now click on the Advanced System Settings link on the left hand side.

Under Performance, click on the Settings button.

Click on the Advanced tab and then click on the Change button under the Virtual Memory heading.

Finally, we have reached where we need to be. Uncheck the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives box and then select No paging file.

Click OK several times to get out of all the dialog windows and then restart your computer. Once you are back in, follow the exact steps again shown above, but this time select System managed size and check the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives box.
Like I said earlier, this works for some people, but not others so your mileage will vary. If you?re still getting blue screens, keep reading.

Method 2- Check Disk

This error can also occur if your hard drive is either failing or has errors on the drive. O... Read more

IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad R50e Type 1834 S5G
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) M processor 1.40GHz, x86 Family 6 Model 13 Stepping 8
Processor Count: 1

I'm getting a BSOD at an intermittent but quite annoying frequency, though this seemed to have improved in the last week as they were daily at one point, but has been quite bad this morning (2 so far, which both occurred while updating/installing Lenovo PC Doctor) which tends to make me think/hope it's not capacitor plague.

Memtest comes up clean and Chkdsk seems ok too, as did hardware tests on PC Doctor, so I'm kind of at the limit of my abilities!

Below are several of the recent bugchecks - any help or advice would be much appreciated as I really need this computer to get me through the next 2 weeks for job reasons..

I have left messages on this website for help before and never received a response, so I am hoping I can get some help with this problem. I built a computer about 7 months ago and have recently had several blue screens during video games with the error "Page fault in nonpaged area". I cannot determine what is causing this issue, and I am trying to solve the issue. Any help or information may be useful to me. I believe the problem has only occurred during video games but it has happened several times in the last couple weeks.

A:Bsod ci.dll page fault in a non paged area

Hi, Mike, and welcome to the forum. I have looked at your four most recent dump. All four show that McAfee was heavily involved in the crashes. McAfee is well known for causing BSOD's on some Win 7 systems, as are many third party security programs. I suggest you uninstall McAfee using this removal tool: Tool. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials in its place. Make sure Windows Firewall is turned on.

You have some out of date drivers loaded on your system. Some are quite obsolete. They are XP drivers. Outdated drivers can and do cause memory corruption and BSOD's. All four of your dumps blame memory corruption. Update these drivers from the links provided or uninstall the software/hardware they are associated with.

Experiencing Memory_Management errors. I check the minidump folder and no dumps are created. I do have the system error reporting set to do a small minidump 128 kb and the location is set to Windows\Minidump. I have gotten new memory installed but the first time I ran the Windows Experience system rater I got another Memory Management BSOD. I checked the Virtual Memory and changed it back to the system managed size and rebooted. Haven't seen a memory management BSOD since but still not sure what is going on. Can Virtual Memory settings cause a Memory Management BSOD? How can I get the minidump?

Hi -

Please see - http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217...ps-501746.html

However, it sounds like the new RAM is the problem.

If you added RAM, take the new RAM stick(s) out.

If you replaced all RAM (got rid of the old), see if system will boot and stabilize on 1 stick RAM.

Could not read the faulting driver in the single DMP. Three things need to be done

1-Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp,sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads

when you're done you can use this Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) in its place.

2-Avast. remove and replace with microsoft security essentials

3-Driver verifier

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Hi I am new here and having a problem with a BSOD and the message comes up page fault in a non paged area. I randomly get a BSOD after the computer comes on. I researched it and I think it is a trojan of some sort. Any info on this/fixes would be extremely helpful. Thank you soo much.

A:BSOD page fault in non paged area

BSODs are not generally caused by viri

1. check your anti-virus and anti-trojan results.
2. check your drivers
3. test your ram for at least 7 passes with memtest 86+ (FREE)
4. test your PSU with a PSU tester and multimeter
5. check your registry with ccleaner (FREE)

Hi, hope someone can help me?

I have a Dell Desktop that won't boot and displays the BSOD, 'page fault in non-paged area' error at startup. I cannot get into safe mode either (I get a SAM.DLL 'not valid windows image' error).

The PC is a Dell Precision 490 (2Gb ram and appears to be RAID as it has 2 hard disks).

I have managed to get a backup of data from the PC by starting it up with a Ubuntu disk, but I'm not sure what to try next. I can't get into safe mode to try a restore point, nor can I run'Last known good config' and I can't run chkdsk.

Any ideas?

Many thanks


A:XP Pro - BSOD, page fault in non-paged area


1. Using the Ubuntu CD copy the files under c:\windows\minidump to another PC then zip them and attach them to your next post.

2. Run Memtest which you can download from here. Download the ZIP file, extract the ISO and write it to CD using a program like ImgBurn.
Once written to CD, boot your PC with the CD and run Memtest. Allow the test to run through at least 3 passes or until it gives errors. If you have more than 1 memory module run the test on each module separately.

3. Download the Windows XP recovery Console ISO from here. Write it to CD using a program like ImgBurn.
Once written to CD, boot your PC with the CD.
On the first screen press "r" to enter the recovery console.
When asked which Windows you want to log in to type in the correct version (Usually "1")
Enter the Administrator password (if asked) else just press enter if you do not have one.
Then at the command prompt type

chkdsk c: /r
and enter.
Allow chkdsk to run.
Restart the PC once done.

If you need instructions with screen shots to enter the recovery console see this article.

Lately I've been having some trouble with computer. I'm getting two BSOD's.
1. Stop 0x00000001 APC index mismatch. This one has heapend two or three times so far and only when booting my computer when my system is loading windows.
2. Stop 0x00000050 Page fault in non pages area. This one heapened this morning when I turned on my computer, allso while loading windows.

Noteable things(that I remeber) I did recently:
- A month or two back I did a clean install of my videocard drivers. (uninstall -> driversweeper -> install).
- Update to the new catalyst (APC index mismatch did allready heapen before that)
- Uninstall pctools firewall -> install comodo firewall.
- Defrag my harddrive with Obit Smart defrag 2

I'm runnings Windows Vista 64x on a 2~3 y old system. I Reinstalled windows once, I think it was roughly a year ago.

I did some research and, as with most BSOD's it said it is either a driver issue or hardware malfunction. Since I dont really that much about the subject and have no clue on how to fix it, I defer to people with more knowledge on the subject.

Hoping its not a harware issue,


A:BSOD - Page fault in non paged area

You have given us only one dump, which is not usually enough to diagnose a BSOD. In your case, however, the cause was a common problem, your anti Virus.
Uninstall Avast. In lieu of Avast use Microsoft Security Essentials and for extra protection Malwarebytes. After the new AV if you still experience BSOD, post.
Be sure to go to the Avast website and use their uninstaller to be sure that all remnanats of Avast are removed.

Hi there. I am having such problem recently and I don't know the reason of it as I don't recall installing any new software or programs lately. Thanks in advance. In addition, I encounter this problem randomly daily. Aside from that, when I am playing a game (most likely the a little higher graphic game) or doing other things or even nothing, my screen will turn blank but the laptop is still functioning. Sometimes, I do still hear sounds when i am listening to the music or watching a movie during the screen blanking moment.

Hey guys. It's me again.

Seems my system is detecting that when one issue is fixed it will put out another one out of nowhere.
This time I am getting an alsysio64.sys BSOD that might be related to ntoskrnl.exe.

Ati Drivers have been giving me a hard time so I wouldn't be surprised if this issue was caused by them at all, this started happening after a Windows scheduled updated ocurred last night.

Whenever the system boots up and loads the desktop it will crash. However when I restart it it will be back to normal, no need to run in safe mode.

I've noticed however... that before the crash occurs, the core temp gadget does not expand to show CPU information. And the second it does, my computer crashes. Upon restart it will load properly, perhaps it is a coincidence. I just find it strange that my system has given me so many issues since I've upgraded to an FM2 platform.

Anyway.. I've attached both of the latest minidumps if you need better information than what I can provide.

Thank you very much

Yep, as quickly as I disabled coretemp from startup the BSOD has stopped happening. I rebooted 5 times trying to reproduce the error and it's just like no BSOD ever happened. This is very strange.

Is there any way I can get into the system and extract the dump files? Is there any way to install the BSOD Dump & System File collection app or Windbg?

I can access the Windows partition after booting into Fedora. Can I extract the dump files from there? If so, what could be the location of the dump?
