page- fault -in -non -page- area

In short, you are in big trouble. Over time, you will notice this becoming more frequent and the error happening during your session. The only cure I have ever seen (and I've seen this on NT4 and 2000) is to fdisk, recreate the partitions, and thenformat the drive and reinstall Windows.

From what I can gather, XP is trying to access it's pagefile outside of the boundaries set for it. Thus the error. Increasing the pagefile to enormous size will not fix the problem. Nothing ever works otherthan reinstallation of the whole system.

The reason this happens is a mystery. I wish I had better news for you. Sorry.
