Hi

im having a problem loading my normal version of XP pro. Turnd my PC on this morning and recieved the blue screen of death right after the XP logo wen windows loads:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
0x000000050 (0xD694000, 0x00000000, 0x804DADF8, 0x00000000).

I am running a second version of xp i installed on my other drive, so im guessing its not a hardware problem, and im able to access the drive with my normal version of XP on fine.

I cannot run xp in safe mode, and have tried suggestions from this and other forums, but still no luck.

Any help would be apprecaited

thanks

For such errors, faulty ram is suspect #1, but since your computer works fine on another HDD If you encounter any problem with your other windows installation, go to http://www.memtest.org/ and burn their precompiled iso on a CD. Then boot on that CD to test your ram.

Run "chkdsk x: /F /R" on the hard drive that can't boot (replace x: by its volume letter). Report here if any errors were found.

If chkdsk report was clean, try a repair install. You'll need a retail or oem XP CD. Go to the bios to set your cd-rom as first boot device, boot on the XP CD, select option 1 "To setup Windows XP now", then after the licence agreement, press R "to repair your current installation". Be sure to choose the correct disk, so if both disks are the same size, check their identifiers in the bios first.

If any updates were made, you'll have to redo them using windows update after the repair install.

Any ideas, short of reinstalling?

Thanks

Download partition table doctor, install it within you other xp and see if it reports any errors in the disk MBR or partition table.

The demo version can't make any changes to the disk (and I believe the boot floppy they provide doesn't work either in demo), so if it reports errors, tell us here.

PTD is running.

Dont know what relevance it has, but the last piece of software i installed was a keyboard and mouse macro recorder, is there any chance this could cause a problem?

Can you start using the last known good configuration ? (tap F8, like when you try to boot in safe mode, and choose that option)

Might be that program you installed that's creating a conflict somewhere, are you certain it was a clean software ? If you can load the last known good configuration, it could prevent that program to start.

Im not 100% sure the software was spyware free, as it was freeware. And no Last Known Good config returns the same blue screen.

Ok... what's the name of the freeware program ? When you're at it, list every program you could have installed before that other xp installation started to crash.

I'll pass it up to a security tech, they might be able to tell you if it's a malware, and if so, if you can delete some files on your other drive to get rid of it.

I'm 99% sure those are not malwares.

Just came out with another idea though, before I ask for a security tech to have a look :

Boot your computer in the working xp, go to internet explorer => tools => folder options => view => check "show hidden folders and files" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".

Go to the root of the non booting drive, and look for a file called "pagefile.sys". Copy it to a separate folder and rename it, just in case. Then delete that file and defrag the drive.

Try to reboot and report if you see any changes.

"pagefile.sys" doesnt exist on the non bootable drive. Folder options were as you suggested.

EDIT: scratch that, im just being special. it is there.

I believe "pagefile.sys" not being there is part of your problem.

Maybe XP can't create it, or some program prevents XP to use it. Are you using norton antivirus ? I read that it could quarantine the page file if some virus is detected inside it.

Have a look on this page, some troubleshooting is detailed at the bottom :

ok, just saw your post. The page file should in no way be in use on that drive when you're booting on the other one. Could be your two XP installations conflicting with each other.

Go to Control Panel => System => Advanced, click Settings in the “Performance” Section. On the Advanced page of the result, the current total physical size of all page files that may be in existence is shown. Click on "change" and disable the page file on the non-booting drive (but keep a page file on the drive you're currently booting on). Then retry to copy and delete the file (you may need to reboot).

When i disable the page file on the non-booting driver, "pagefile".sys dissapears, so im unable to copy it.

Also, i installed the other version of xp purley because of the problem on my normal one, so the problem existed before the second version of xp ever existed.

Ok, disabling the page file deleted the file right away, that seems allright.

Did you see any changes to your BSOD when you tried to boot ?

Check if anything on this link can be of some help :
