    Hi,

    I have a Patriot 2006 laptop with windows xp home edition sp2 which i've had for a few years,just yesterday totally out of the blue i got a blue screen of death which said:

    Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error.

    There was also a stop message which i think was stop 7xA00000000.

    Ever since then it's happened about 6 times and is showing no sighns of letting up, i have run a disk check for errors and everthing comes up normal, also all the device drivers seem fine and i've also restored laptop to an earlier time, all to no avail. I'm hoping someone on here can help, i've googled about and many posts ive read seem to think it is a hard drive error which is particularly worrying as i know nothing about repairing hard drives and i'm skint.

    To top ot all i would love to install windows xp again to see if it helps but i moved house recently and have lost my discs!

    Hope someone can help.

    Microsoft says: This Stop message indicates that the requested page of kernel data from the paging file could not be read into memory. This Stop message is usually caused by a bad block (sector) in a paging file, a virus, a disk controller error, or failing RAM. In rare cases, it is caused when nonpaged pool resources run out. It is also caused by defective hardware.

    If you can run it for any length of time in safemode, I'd suggest starting with a virus scan. You said it started out of the blue. You haven't added any new peripherals or maybe any new applications? Does it seem to get exceptionally hot? Is it possible it was surged (would make the RAM screwy)? I don't know about your brand laptop, but Dell has a hard drive diagnotstic that can be run before the computer has booted by pressing F8.
