The “PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA” error with stop code 0x00000050 typically means that the system requested data that was not in memory, causing a system crash. This is generally caused by faulty hardware or drivers that are incorrectly managing the system’s memory.

How to fix:

  1. Check your memory (RAM): You can use Windows Memory Diagnostic tool to check your computer’s RAM. Type “Windows Memory Diagnostic” in the Windows search bar and follow the on-screen instructions. If you find any problems, you may need to replace your RAM.
  2. Update your drivers: This problem can often be caused by outdated or corrupt drivers. To update your drivers, you can go to Device Manager, find the device that you think might be causing the problem, right click on it, and choose “Update Driver”. You can also visit the manufacturer’s website of each component to get the latest drivers.
  3. Check for updates: Make sure that your system is up-to-date. You can do this by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and clicking on “Check for updates”.
  4. Disable automatic paging file size management: Right-click on “This PC” and choose “Properties”. Then go to “Advanced system settings” > “Performance” > “Settings” > “Advanced” > “Change”. Uncheck “Automatically manage paging file size for all drives”, select your Windows drive (usually C:), select “Custom size”, and set initial and maximum size to the value recommended by Windows.
  5. Check your disk for errors: You can use the CHKDSK utility to check for any hard drive issues. Open Command Prompt as an administrator, and type in “chkdsk /f /r”. Press enter and agree to schedule the scan for the next system restart.

Remember, always back up your data before performing any significant changes to your system. If these solutions do not work, it may be worth consulting a professional or reaching out to your system’s manufacturer for further assistance.
