    Windows Vista Will NOT Boot: BSOD; PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    Hi. My Windows Vista Ultimate x64 installation will not bootup. It started
    only a few days ago after never having one before. A little after the splash
    screen appears, I get a BSOD saying:

    A problemhas been detected and windows has been shut dwon to prevent damage
    to your computer.

    CLFS.SYS

    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    Then it says restart if it is the first time and to make sure hardware is
    installed right.

    Technical Information:

    ***STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFF980043BF018,0x0000000000000000,
    0xFFFFF9800005F511, 0x0000000000000000)


    *** CLFS.SYS - Address FFFFF9800005F511 base at FFFFF98000019000,
    Datestamp 459b3d1


    It just stays here until I hold the power button down to shut it off.
    Oh, btw, I'm typing this on my laptop, incase anyone was wondering.
    I looked CLFS up and it is the Common Log File System.
    I also discovered that the PAGE_FAULT... sometimes means that the file is
    not loaded into memory correctly. I put the hard drive in aa different pc
    (one that can run vista x64) and I still got a BSOD, even though that pc has
    xp pro running fine.
    I assumed that this meant my memory was fine.
    Also, when I attempt to boot from the vista disc, I BSOD as well, the same
    error message. But I tried without the hard drive in, and it booted from the
    disc, any clue why??

    Anyway, I would greatly appreciate anyone's help, considering I need my
    computer for school next week. Thanks in advance, Micheal.

    If you're getting this error even when trying to boot from the Vista DVD, I
    suspect the Hard Drive is first in line in the boot sequence and needs to be
    changed to the DVD drive. This can only be changed in the system BIOS.

    When the system boots, the first screen usually contains a message to hit a
    specific key if you wish to enter setup. You may need to do this a couple
    of times before you actually see the message but when you do, follow that
    option. Once in the BIOS/setup, you will need to navigate around to find
    the boot sequence. When their, assuming the Hard Drive is first in line in
    the sequence, place the DVD drive first in the boot sequence. Place the
    Vista disk in the drive, save and exit the BIOS, if the system simply
    continues the boot sequence to the blue screen, reboot and see if it then
    boots to the DVD.

    Even if you think the DVD drive is first in line, check to make sure as the
    symptom you describe would seem to indicate otherwise.

    If you are then able to boot from the Vista DVD, use the repair startup
    option at the setup screen.

    Hi Michael. The hard drive is not first in the boot sequence, however,
    neither is the DVD drive, Floppy is first in the sequence. I do not have a
    floppy drive installed though. I put the DVD drive first and as of now, I
    haven't gotten a BSOD, but it is just a black screen. I keep waiting and I'll
    try again as well. Thanks for your advice, Micheal

    If it still won't get to Vista setup, the next possibility I see is that
    there is a problem with your hard drive. Unfortunately, trying to diagnose
    it would be problematic. Usually, you would want to download your hard
    drive's diagnostic tools from drive manufacturer's website and then create a
    bootable floppy or in your case, a bootable CD or DVD inclusive of those
    tools. They usually include instructions for disk creation which might need
    to be modified a bit for CD or DVD creation. Then, you'd boot from that
    disk and run their diagnostic.

    Another possibility is just some other hardware issue or conflict. Is
    anything connected to your computer. If yes, I'd disconnect all external
    devices whether they are turned on or not and try to boot from your Vista
    DVD again.

    Something amazing has happened!! My computer started correctly! I have no
    idea why. I deleted the boot files on my other pc trying to make the computer
    rewrite them, I guess it did? While I'm happy this has been resolved, I don't
    want it to happen again. Is there any advice you could give me on making sure
    this won't happen again? Any programs to inspect system files? Any would be
    great and thanks for your assistance. Micheal

    Please advise the specific boot files you deleted to get Win Vista boot
    up again. I am having the same problem with Vista Utimate 32. Thanks,
