I have Windows XP sp 2, 2gb ram, 250gb hard disk. According to the Disk Defragmenter, my c drive has 47% free disk space. I haven't installed any new hardware or software recently, other than a new UPS system. :)
And in the last one week I have encountered the BSoD twice. I wrote down what I got for the first time, the 2nd time it was something about not enough disk space...

Here's the first time I got the error:
Page fault in non paged area

Please help me determine what the issue is. Vendors here simply go for re-installing the OS from scratch and not into analyzing the error messages :confused:

Can you post a few of your latest minidump files? They are located in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump. ZIP them and attach them to your next post.

Right-click the minidump file, select Send To, then select Compressed (zipped) Folder.

Windows will compress (zip) the file and save the new zipped file in the same location.

If the Minidump folder is empty, you'll need to configure Windows to create minidump files:

Run a Memory test.
http://www.memtest.org/
http://www.memtest86.com/download.html

Download and burn the ISO to CD
Boot from that CD and run the memory test overnight or at least for a few hours.

Edit.
2Gb Ram you say - missed that.
You are still using Service Pack 2 - update asap to SP3.

Also..check Device Manager.
Click Start button>run>type
devmgmt.msc

Check for any yellow exclamation marks.
A driver may need updating.
