I have a dell dimension 5150 running windows xp and about a year ago I started to get blue screen errors and had to replace the hard drive. Starting about a month ago I started getting a blue screen with many different error messages....page fault in non paged area, kernal stack inpage error, kernal data inpage error, etc....which i did a dskchk/f each time and it seems to recover. It seemed to occur when i went into ie so i switched to google chrome but I am still getting blue screens when running different programs about once a day and i have to reboot the computer. Everything is running very slow coming up the first time I go into the application. It seems like the hard drive is searching or running a lot before anything comes up on the screen. Usually once I run the app the first time and relaunch it the same day it comes up much quicker. I've done a virus search with avast and I tried to do a hard drive diagnositic with software i downloaded from western digital but it ran for about 8 hours and finally went to blue screen. Please help.

It could be a dying hard drive!

Check and post
TSG System Information Utility - found here.
http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_Valuable_links

Check Device Manager
Click Start button>run>type
devmgmt.msc

Check for any yellow exclamation marks.
A driver may need updating.

Can you post the latest minidump files
Look in c:\windows\minidump
ZIP them and attach them to your next post.

Download BLUESCREENVIEW and install and run it to read the dump files created by windows.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Would you please tell me which antivirus applications you have had previously on this machine any and all.The reason I ask is because some like to hang around after you uninstall via add remove programs and require the use of removal tools.




What kind of computer do you have exactly??Example Compaq presario c700


Download CCLEANER


Just DONT us the registry cleaner function of CCleaner unless you know what you are deleting exactly!!

Then open ccleaner hit the tools button then startup second one down below uninstall then in the bottom right hand corner of ccleaner hit save to text file.Save it to your desktop and post the startup.txt here in your next reply.




Please download MINITOOLBOX When the box opens click save file, save it to the desktop and run it.





Checkmark the following boxes:


Flush Dns
List Installed Programs
List Users, Partitions and Memory size
Click Go and post the result.

Run sfc /scannow also run chkdsk /r Links explaining below.




chkdsk /r

sfc /scannow

IF THIS IS A DESKTOP Unplug the tower open up the side.Get can of compressed air and blow out the machine and reseat the ram modules video card etc,see video Plug it back in and see how it goes.WHILE YOU HAVE THE RAM AND VIDEO CARD OUT BLOW OUT THE SLOTS THAT THEY PLUG INTO.ALSO BLOW OUT THE HEAT SINK.SEE VIDEO

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND POST ALL INFORMATION REQUESTED!! :)

I want to make one thing very clear DO NOT use the registry cleaner function of ccleaner!!

Minidump report.
Probably caused by : atapi.sys
Probably caused by : Mup.sys x2

Did you check Device manager?
I'd back up any needed data, files etc.
Try another hard drive test.

Hard drive manufacturers test.

Ram Test
http://www.memtest.org/
http://www.memtest86.com/download.html
http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

Best to run a full scan - on individual Ram sticks.
Download and burn the ISO to CD

Boot from that CD and run the memory test overnight or at least for a few hours.
