Solutions To Fix “Page Fault In Nonpaged Area – 0x00000050”

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, 0x00000050, Stop: 0x00000050 or 0x50, whatever you call they all are the same “Blue Screen Of Death” error which all known for its different names. Normally this BSOD Error caused by some recent changes in your computer, like you added a new hardware or maybe install some new software or Drivers, and sometimes this issue also occurred due to the corrupted Windows of your computer.

So, Now The Main Question Is “Actually, What Is The Non-Paged Area?”

As you know, there are so many different types of hardware are attached in your personal computer system which is used for storing data, like your Pen drive, Solid State Drive, Hard Disk Drive and RAM (Random access memory) etc.

Where your computer’s Ram mainly used for storing currently active process data because a ram memory has the capability to read and write the storage much faster than the top-end level SSDs and HDDs and instantly contains the information required for the computer to process its current active tasks.

Sometimes when there is too many data to be held in the RAM or maybe that data which isn’t actively in use, is actually stored temporarily in the Page File of your Windows. A Page file is a file located in your Windows drive which your computer uses as for additional RAM storage.

The Non-Paged area is an area of memory that contains data which is critical for the running of the system. This data is always required, so instead of swapping the data back and forth between the RAM and the page file, the data is kept constantly in the RAM, in the non-paged area. Essentially in this area, the data should not be moved from RAM to the page file.

In A Normal Language, this particular error would usually occur, when your PC required data which they cannot locate in the Ram memory and that’s the reason why your system starts to creating this kind of fault error and showing you the blue background error message on your computer’s screen.

As per Microsoft, this error mainly caused by some of your computer’s faulty hardware like a RAM or hard drive, Corrupted NTFS Volume or maybe some bad corrupted Drivers. Most of the times corrupted Windows is the main reason, but I can’t say every time, because there are more than one possible reasons which can make this error to shows up in front of you, which I’m actually all mentioned after this paragraph.

There Are Five Possible Reasons Which Were Happened With Your Computer And Those Are –

  1. Recently Installed USB Or Hardware
  2. Recently Installed Or Updated Drivers
  3. Recently Updated Windows
  4. Windows Got Corrupted
  5. Ram Got Faulty

As you can see, there are numbers of possible reasons for this error to occur and just because of those different reasons there are also numbers of possible solution what you’ll need to try in order to fix your problem.

So, the thing is, I actually wrote all the possible solution what you can try to fix this problem and now you’ll just have to start with the Solution No.1 and follow until you’ve fixed your PC on your own.

In case, if this error appears while on your system’s startup then the first thing what you’ll need to do is to repair your Windows with the help of Windows Startup Repair Utility Tool. To know more about it, you can follow my this suggested article >> Startup Repair – What It Is And How To Use It?

So, Let’s See What’s Happened To Your Desktop Or Laptop Computer;

#First Thing First: If you recently attached any USB Hardware or cable, like Printer, Scanner, Hard disk or whatever you’ve recently attached to your computer’s USB port, just remove or disconnect it, because maybe it’s also possible that the hardware what you’ve recently connected is creating some kinda problem with your computer’s Operating System and showing you this 0x00000050 error on the screen. In case, if you don’t connect anything recently then maybe you should also need to disconnect everything which is connected to the USB port, beside your USB keyboard and mouse. So, just for make sure about it.

Actually, the thing what I’m trying to say is, just stay connected your “Keyboard or Mouse Cable”, “Display Cable” & “Computer Power Cable” only and besides that, remove all the connected cables which are attached to your computer’s back panel. For laptops, just remove everything besides your laptop’s power adaptor.

After that it’s time to test your computer and do whatever you can do which can lead your computer to the BSOD, because sometimes this small thing can solve this error and in case if this thing does work for you, then reconnect all those cables one by one back in its place and test your computer every time when you attaches a single cables and repeat this with every connection until you’ll find that faulty one.

If this won’t works for you, then it’s possible that your Windows might be corrupted too and not performing well, and to confirm that just move on to the next solution.

Solution No.3 – Error Fix by Virtual Memory Settings

Windows set the initial minimum size of the paging file equal to the amount of random access memory (RAM) installed in your computer, and the maximum size equal to three times the amount of RAM installed on your computer. If you see any problem with these recommended levels, then increase the minimum and maximum sizes of those setting can fix this problem.

In case, If you are receiving any type of warnings from your computer system that your virtual memory is low with this Page Fault In NonPaged Area error, then I’m sure increasing or resizing the minimum size of your paging file can 99% fix this type of issue.

Let’s See, How To Change Virtual Memory Settings:

If you don’t know, Virtual memory is your PCs Hard Drive’s space which is mainly used by your operating system to full fill physical RAM basic storage needs to increase the performance. Virtual memory actually helps your personal computer to execute programs and action as quickly as possible when your computer is running low on Random Access Memory (RAM).

Virtual memory combines your RAM’s memory with your Hard Disk Drive space and work together to decrease the issue of RAM and helps to speed up your system to work efficiently.

Here’s The Step To Change The Virtual Memory Settings, To Make This Error Gone:

  1. On the desktop’s screen, press CTRL + “Pause Break”key on your keyboard to open your Windows Properties window and in case pressing both keys won’t works for you then you also try to search for the keyword “System Properties” in the starts menu too.
  2. On the System’s properties window, select the “Advanced system settings” option.
  3. Then you will see, a Windows pop-up comes on your screen called “System Properties”.
  4. Now, you’ll need to click on the “Setting” button under the performance category.
  5. Then click on “Advanced” tab.
  6. Then click on the Virtual memory’s “Change” option.
  7. Now, uncheck the “Automatically manage paging file size for all drivers”
  8. Then, enter the double amount of currently allocated memory in custom size box, just like I did, and then click on “OK” to save the current setting.

At last, restart your computer to see the changes.

#1- Ram Troubleshooting By Reconnecting The Memory Stick: 

  • Turn off your computer and remove the side panel of your CPU’s cabinet, if you are having the problem with your laptop then remove the back panel of your laptop to unhide your laptop’s Ram Slots.
  • Inside of cabinet, once you push aside the mass of cables, you will find the RAM affixed to the motherboard’ slots. The RAM chips generally sit next to each other in parallel slots on the motherboard. Little plastic clips sit in small grooves on the sides, keeping the chips fixed in place.
  • Now I want you to remove all of the connected RAMs and clean it properly. Maybe this article can help you to do that >> How to Clean a Ram Stick?
  • After the cleaning procedure now put the RAM back in its place and then start your computer for the testing purpose. if you having a single ram installed in your computer or laptop and still having the problem even after trying the cleaning procedure then I think now you’ll just need to move on the next solution where I wrote about how to test the ram is working properly or not.
  • In case, your computer or laptop has more than one stick of RAM. To find which one of them is causing the problem, simply remove one of the stick and try loading up the computer again. If the problem still exists, put that stick what you’ve removed back in its place, and then remove the different one and again test your computer. Just continue if nothing
