    Ok, so I've recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 on my PC. Before that I was running XP Corporate. When I was on XP I would get BSOD's at random times. I could never try to remedy the problem because the BSOD itself would pop up, vanish, and my PC would restart. Now, after installing 7 I am still getting BSODs, but I can read them and they're telling me that I have a Page Fault in a Non Paged Area. Anyone have any clue as to what's going on?

    Computer Specs:
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ (2.05 GHz)
    3GB DDR RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+
    Maxtor 6E040L0 ATA Device (40GB)
    NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller
    Tealtek AC97 Audio

    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64

    All system information comes straight from Device Manager


    Edit: This time it gave me a file name, win32k.sys

    We need the actual DMP file created when the computer crashed. they usually are located in C:\windows\minidump.

    If you cant find it there you can search for *.dmp. when you find it please attach and upload

    thanks

    Ken

    Thanks ken, if you could explain to me how to put my dmp files in this zip folder I'll upload them ASAP. It keeps telling me "Error: File Not Found Or No Read Permissions."

    Just checked my own zip after seeing an error message from 7zip. It refuses to zip them giving me the same message as before.
