BSOD - page fault in nonpaged area

how do you repair a BSOD "page fault in a nonpaged area" on a Toshiba Satellite laptop using Windows 10? Upon startup it just keeps recyling the BSOD, never fixes it. It appeared after hibernating on the battery & battery when dead.

  1. non paged area is ram, or a driver...

    to see if its ram, download memtest86 on another PC and use it to make a USB. It doesn't need windows to run, test 1 stick at a time. Any errors are too many and are cause of errors you getting. Stick needs to be replaced

    To test drivers:
    On another PC, download the Windows 10 media creation tool and use it to make a win 10 installer on USB << its just a boot disc if nothing else

    change boot order so USB is first, hdd second
    boot from installer
    on screen after languages, choose repair this pc, not install.
    choose troubleshoot
    choose advanced
    choose start up options
    hit the restart button
    choose a safe mode (it doesn't matter which) by using number associated with it.
    PC will restart and load safe mode

    If its a driver error, it shouldn't happen in safe mode.
    Can you follow option one here:
    and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD

    that creates a file in c/windows/minidump
    copy that file to a USB
    upload the copy from the USB to a cloud server and share the link here and someone with right software to read them will help you fix it :)

  2. I had this error and I was pulling out my hair trying to find a solution. Swapped RAM and tried all sorts of stuff. I ended up having to clean the heat sink on my GPU. It has been running smooth ever since. If you don't feel confident opening up your laptop then just use some compressed air (I found that air in a can doesn't have enough pressure) and blow it out. I used an air compressor with an air chuck (and just hit the chuck a couple of times to make sure I wasn't getting condensation). I hope this helps.
