How-to troubleshoot the Stop Message: Stop 0x50 PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA.

A Stop 0x50 message indicates that requested data was not in memory. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 cache, and video card memory), or incompatible software (including antivirus and remote control software) might be the cause of 0x50 messages.

Resolving the Problem

Before you can fix this problem you need to figure out what caused it. Did you recently install new software or hardware? This will help out a lot when troubleshooting the problem.

  1. Run Windows Memory Diagnostics to see if it’s the memory causing this problem.
  2. If you recently installed new hardware lately, check and make sure it’s not the cause of this problem. Try removing or replacing it.
  3. 0x50 messages are also caused by faulty drivers. If a driver is named in the message, try rolling the driver back to a previous working version or uninstall it. You might need to boot Windows Vista in Safe Mode to uninstall the driver.
  4. System services can also cause 0x50 messages. If you recently installed software try uninstalling it or disabling services installed by it.
  5. Check your hard drive for errors. Run Check Disk to scan and fix problems on your hard drive.
