Re: blue screen (Page Fault in Non Paged Area) on startup when having external (usb) hard drive disconnected
Please post a complete copy of the Stop Error Report.
Disable automatic restart on system failure. This should help by
allowing time to write down the STOP code properly. Keep pressing
the F8 key during StartUp and select option - Disable automatic
restart on system failure.
Do not re-enable automatic restart on system failure until you have
resolved the problem. Check for variants of the Stop Error message.
What is the make and model of your computer. What CD system disks do
you have for your computer?
Hope this helps.
Enquire, plan and execute
