What Do I Do to Fix KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR In Windows 8?

KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR is displayed on Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). This error has Bug Check Code (BCCode) 0x0000007A, and it means that there is some issue reading/loading information to/from Pagefile that is stored in the hard disk drive.

Exact cause of KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR can be found by going through the code displayed under Parameter 2 heading which can be read by opening the generated minidump file in any .DMP viewer application such as BlueScreenView. Some most commonly Parameter 2 codes related to KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR, STOP: 0x0000007A are:

  1. 0xC000009A – This Parameter 2 code represents missing nonpaged pool resources.
  2. 0xC000009A – This code represents that the installed hard disk drive has bad sectors.
  3. 0xC000009A – This code represents that the hard disk drive is not detected due to lose cabling, or any other similar reason.


  • In order to rectify the error, CHKDSK command must be run under elevated privileges using appropriate parameters. In case the hard disk drive is not detected, the lose cables must be replaced or otherwise tightened in order to resolve the issue.

    Another best practice to avoid the same problem in future is that paging file management must be configured to automatic. This ensures that Windows 8 automatically manages the size of the pagefile as needed.
