    Windows won't start - Page Fault In Non-Paged Area blue screen error

    Hi, I have a major computer problem. I made the mistake of buying a
    Windows instead of a Mac which was very stupid. I hope someone can help
    me. I have Windows XP Home and every time I try to start up I get a
    blue screen saying "Page Fault In Non-Paged Area". It then goes on to
    tell me that I should uninstall any newly installed software, hardware,
    and configurations. And then it tells me how to boot in safe mode.
    However, it is like a time bomb. Sometimes I can get up to the login
    screen in regular and safe mode but before I have a chance to login my
    computer just boots down and brings up the blue screen. So, Microsofts
    vague and idiotic advice about uninstallation is pretty much uslesss
    seeing as I can't even log on. I have tried everything. I have tried
    running in all 3 safemodes, Running an IDE Boot check. Running repair
    from the Windows OS CD, and running chkdsk, using the repair menu from
    the Windows CD, among other things. Please help if you know how to fix
    this problem.

    It's possible that this is related to memory flaws (i.e. hardware). BIOS
    settings can contribute to these problems, so resetting hte BIOS to defaults
    may help you. In some cases this can mean removing the battery and
    jumpering the BIOS CLEAR jumpers. Note that if your system has SATA
    drives, you may have extra settings necessary to permit the system to
    properly boot. Removing all but the minumum amount of RAM can also help
    isolate the problem.
