Hey.

I have this annoying problem concerning system failure. I have had system crashes before and then it took about seven times to boot my system before it got stable. Then i had these failure messages: "page fault in non paged area" and "driver irql not less or equal". Now i have installed a clean version of Win XP Pro and i have Service Pack 2. All I have installed with it are Firefox, Norton Internet Security 2005 and Forceware 78.01 driver for my Geforce 6600GT.

I have cleaned my case and tried to switch my memorysticks and nothing works. My system won´t stay up at all now. These are the error messages:

Driver irql not less or equal

Stop: 0x000000D1 (0x85FFFFE4, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x85FFFFE4)
and
Stop: 0x0000000A (0x006018C8, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804D9092)
and
Stop: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x00000045, 0xF894CB9C, 0x00000000)

Please, if someone could help me with this problem I would appreciate it a lot.
There is an attachment from the recent crashes (when I got the access to the files because now my OS won´t load at all even in safe mode) in minidump.zip. Thank You. (Feel free to ask any additional information)

My computer specs are:

AMD Athlon XP 1800+
Epox 8KHA+
Geforce 6600GT
Seagate Barracuda 80 GB & Maxtor Diamond Plus9 80 GB
Creative SoundBlaster PCI128
Codegen case with Nexus Silent 300W Power supply

This is what i get from the inside of the latest minidump file....

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 006018c8, memory referenced
Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
Arg3: 00000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation

will it stay on long enough to check your device manager or to get into safe mode for a disk check and virus scan? try 1 stick of ram only....
i still am suspect of your psu.

0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Typically due to a bad driver, or faulty or incompatible hardware

0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile


0x0000008E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
A kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didn’t catch. These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).


The common denominator between these is a bad driver or incompatible hardware.
So the first thing to do is try a different driver for your video card since nv4_mini.sys and similar should be refering to nvidia driver files.

You could always check the memory addresses referenced and see if they are one of the ranges assigned your video card, but it is almost certainly a problem with it.

Now I have tried the newest nvidia drivers and third party omega drivers. Nothing helps. It helps for a while when I chkdsk/r from the recovery console. But what is odd it started to do this suddenly. Would it help if I tried Win XP SP1?

did you try just 1 stick of ram? [ if there is 2? ] and a different slot also
also can you try a sfc check -

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem. You will need your Windows cd.

i am still concerned with the psu, the nexus is rated as low quality and 300 watts is borderline for any system, it would be nice if you could borrow a different supply just for a test before purchasing one... a spastic psu will give all types of strange error reports.

Now i have formatted the whole drive and when I tried to install a new version of Windows I got BSOD saying "0x0000001D.......". Now I am going to try only with one stick of RAM (Kingston) and leave the other one a side. I´m also plugging out my second optical drive and a case fan if it helps. It can very possibly be the PSU. The man at the computer shop conviced me to buy it (Nexus) and told it would run all my hardware. I´ll get back when I get the OS up and running.

Agh. Me too. Can't imagine what's going on, just got a new PSU (PC Power & Cooling 470W) and it's been working fine. This only really started happening after I got a new X800 XL. Here are the specs:

AMD 64 3200
ASUS K8V SE Deluxe
1 GB OCZ Dual Channel DDR400
2 80 GB Seagate SATA in RAID 0
Audigy 2 ZS
ATI X800 XL 256 MB

Here is the Everest sensor scan report:
Sensor Properties:
Sensor Type Winbond W83697HF (ISA 290h)
GPU Sensor Type National LM63 (ATI-I2C 4Ch)
Motherboard Name Asus K8V Series

Temperatures:
Motherboard 32 °C (90 °F)
CPU 51 °C (124 °F)
GPU 46 °C (115 °F)
GPU Ambient 40 °C (104 °F)
Seagate ST380013AS 49 °C (120 °F)

Voltage Values:
CPU Core 1.55 V
+3.3 V 3.23 V
+5 V 5.03 V
+12 V 11.25 V
+5 V Standby 4.97 V
Debug Info F FF FF FF
Debug Info T 32 51 255
Debug Info V 61 00 CA BB B9 D1 FF (01)

I know the 12V rail seems really low, but it's been that way forever and otherwise hasn't been causing a prob.


Cheers,
Al

Thank you all for helping me. Sorry I haven´t replied sooner but i just bought new MB and memory. It was the MB that caused all the problems. It was defected and actually pretty old. Nevertheless i have to buy new PSU because even the 6600GT package says "preferred using minimum of 350W PSU". -THX-
