Hey, i've been having problems with installing windows the past week. I
finally got it running after screwing around with BIOS settings, but when it
finally installed it was freezing and such, so i decided to screw with soem
more BIOS settings to get it tweeked. Well, i did the optimized defaults and
windows wouldn't even start! it would restart when it got to the windows
loading screen. So i formatted the harddrive once more, and tried to install,
now i cant even install windows! I have been screwing with BIOS settings for
the past two days. Right when it loads the files for setup an error comes up,
it says this:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

Technical Information:

***STOP: 0X00000050 (0XF898B000, 0X00000001, 0X807D07A1, 0X00000000)

I have researched and found tons of things on this, just not the exact
problem im having (Numebrs different). And im switched ram, video cards, etc.)

When i turn off Video Bios Shadowing (Told me to turn off shadowing, cache,
etc.) I get this also:

BAD_POOL_CALLER

Techinal Information:

***STOP: 0X000000c2 (0X00000007, 0X00000CD4, 0X36393166, 0XE107F460)

I really wanna get this thing running!

Thanks,
Eric

In addition to my above post, i can get to thee part where setup copies the
files if i overclock my ram, put more voltage to it. But when it gets to
about 20% another error comes up and says:

A Problem has been detected and windows has to shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

***Stop: 0X00000024 (0X001902F8, 0XF80CD378, 0XF80CD078, 0XF815A742)

*** ntfs.sys - Address F815A742 bast at F815A000, Datestamp 3B7DC5D0

Thats wierd, makes me think its ram, i only have sd ram laying around, it
wont fir in the socket i have (DDR only).

Revert your BIOS settings back to standard defaults. Don't overclock your RAM or anything.

Set pc BIOS to boot from CDROM first. Boot from XP CD.
Do a clean install (new) choice, and choose "advanced" options-button. This will allow a re-format of system drive.

Hey, thanks for the fast rsponse.. But that doesn't work?? I cleared CMOS and
made all BIOS settings default a billion times! That same error comes up! I
wonder what it could be?

Thanks,
Eric

Carefully and slowly, look at BIOS settings. Look to see if it shows an
option to "Load Fail Safe settings".
If so, try that.

Hardware wise, do you have a USB keyboard, SCSI drives, anything beyond the
ordinary ?
If have USB keyboard, use a PS2-type during XP setup.
