      Unfortunately you have been a bit vague in your description. When troubleshooting an invalid page fault error we need to know which apps and modules are involved. If you notice when you get the error, there will be a details button. When you click on that it opens a window that gives more details. Look for something like this: “ caused an invalid page fault error in module at .” X respresents an app that has attempted to access the same memory space as Y. If you can figure that out and send the entire message we will have a better chance of determining the cause. Most invalid page faults are caused be an app invading anothers memory space. The Microsoft knowledge base is a good place to seek answers to this question. http://www.support.microsoft.com

      Depends on if the error is simalure to the sample one listed below:

      EXPLORER.EXE has caused an invalid page fault in module KERNEL32.DLL at 015f:04500018

      The only way to pin point the cause is with the 12 digit code at the end. If you get a chance post it so we can help. Unless you have lots of different Invalid page faults & then it is prob your video driver.

      Usually, if the IPF occurs while using a particular application, uninstalling & reinstalling that app will resolve the problem. As mentioned above, it is usually caused by two applications trying to share a block of memory.
