[BEST FIX] Errores ‘Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area’ en

Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area errors have been around since Windows XP, if not more. They refer to Windows or a Windows application trying to access a portion of physical memory that is invalid, whether it is being used by another application or reserved for something else. Windows somehow cannot cope with this and will generate this error and a blue screen of death.

If you are lucky, the syntax of the error will also tell you what caused the problem. For example, ‘Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area (ati.sys)’. The .sys file referenced in that error is the application trying to access memory that it shouldn’t.

The error can be caused by hardware or software and does not usually happen out of nowhere. It will occur most often right after a RAM or graphics card change, a Windows kernel or application update, or when you have installed something new. With that in mind, the first troubleshooting you should do is revert any changes you have made. Remove the RAM, disable the service of the application that you updated, uninstall it, or revert to a previous version. Only once you’ve done it, you should move on.
