Sometimes when I'm using my computer it goes to a blue screen with a dire error message that says:

PAGE-FAULT-IN-NON-PAGED-AREA

and the error codes displayed are:

0xc000005, 0x859BOC9, Ox00000000, 0X0000008E



I'm a little worried because it's happening more and more frequently as of late.

Any idea why it's happening and why?

Thanks.

It can be a problem to pin down.
Its trying to address memory in areas that it does not exist.

Its often associated with faulty RAM, and if you have the option to run with one stick in (assuming you have 2 sticks) then you could eliminate that.

Also heat can cause it, by allowing components to exceed their critical temperature they may become flakey.

Try re-seating the RAM in the sockets for a start?

from here : http://aumha.org/win5/a/xpvm.htm

* The Non-Paged area. Parts of the System which are so important that they may never be paged out - the area of RAM used for these is called in XP the 'Non-Paged area'. Because this mainly contains core code of the system, which is not likely to contain serious faults, a Blue Screen referring to 'Page Fault in Non-Paged area' probably indicates a serious hardware problem with the RAM modules, or possibly damaged code resulting from a defective Hard disk. It is, though, possible that external utility software (e.g. Norton) may put modules there too, so if such faults arise when you have recently installed or updated something of this sort, try uninstalling it.
