Windows 7 BSOD Page Error in Non Paged Area

I have recently started having trouble with my pc, where after about 5 to 15 minutes of use causes a blue screen. The error is Page error in non paged area, and I've done a decent amount of searching and forum trawling, to no avail. The error occurs seemingly at random, and with no particular cause. I have tried several suggested solutions, such as memtest, swapping RAM modules to different slots, system restore, checking the health of the hard disk, antivirus, and several others, but nothing. I have narrowed down the cause of the issue, however. When my secondary hard drive is disconnected, the BSoD does not occur. But as it is a few months old at most, I am somewhat reluctant to junk it. Also, for some reason performing an anti virus scan of the whole computer seems to extend the session to about an hour to two hours.

I would appreciate any feedback anyone can offer, and apologize if this is the wrong section to be posting this problem. Cheers.

  1. Try increasing the size of your page file
  2. I'm giving that a go now, cheers. My second drive, a Samsung 3TB, doesn't have a paging file allocated to it. Should it? Or just the OS drive?
  3. May want a small one in case any apps tied to it need one
  4. Actually a good point, I have several programs that run off the second hard drive. Increasing the page file on the first drive didn't help, but I'll give this a go.
