What Does Page Fault in Nonpaged Area Windows 10 Mean?

This means your PC could not continue. Why? It asked for a page of memory but the page was not available.

Windows too was in the middle of a process but crashed. Your work vaporized. Why? Because it could not continue the process. That is why we call it the Blue Screen of Death.

What Is a Non-paged Area?

Many components in the PC are available to store data. You must have heard of hard drives and RAM. RAM will remember the data as long as the process is running. Then the data will no longer be available in RAM.

But, the hard drive keeps the data even if the computer is off.

Why use RAM then? Speed. RAM is faster than a hard drive. How does that relate to the nonpaged area? When some process is not running in the RAM then there is a place in the hard drive called a page file to store it.

You may call it the extra RAM. So, data is always interchanged between RAM and page file. Then what is the non-paged area? It stores that data without which your system cannot run.

This critical data should never move from RAM to the page file. The non-paged area stores that data that moves from RAM to the page file.

Your Windows tried to fetch this critical data from a non-paged area but failed to find it. This is not software but a hardware failure.

  1. More often than not, blame your RAM.
  2. An antivirus came looking for something and edited or removed something.
  3. Level one or level two cache is to blame.
  4. Hard disk is corrupt.
