Page_Fault_in_nonpaged_area (nvads1.sys RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Surface 2, windows 8RT. Whenever I start to watch a video from hulu, in the middle of the video program my computer wants to restart, it states: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (nvads1.sys). Any suggestions on how to remedy this?

  • Hello,

    First I would look for memory.dmp file in %WINDIR% folder and open it with latest WinDbg after configuring symbols in order to understand where the problem is.

  • The same thing happens to me when u watch Hulu as well. It appears to be happening during the transition from commercial to main video or main video to commercial.

  • Hi rducky

    As it was told by the other user you should open MEMORY.dmp dump file which is probably stored on C:\Windows directory with windbg and run !analyze -v command.Bear in mind that before using windbg you should have your public symbols installed.

    Usually drivers are not allowed to incur page fault while operating at DPC level 0x2.

  • Can you upload windbg !analyze -v command output?

  • Any progress with this? My friend just got a Surface 2, and is having exactly the same problem with Hulu. I have an RT which works fine...

    I imagine there'd be a lot more people complaining if this was a problem with all Surface 2s?

  • I am having this exact same issue.. I purchased my surface 2 when released and this has been happening multiple times. I did a repair then a full reset back in NOV 2013 this fixed the problem till about march. I have had to reset/ repair many times and this surface 2 is not the most stable. Now it does it all the time with Hulu I have all the updates and did the repair then full reset. Nothing seems to fix this. It always happens when between commercials or right after(just like stated above). Has anyone figured this out ? Was it fixed by a replacement? I really don't want to have to do a replacement unless that is my only option.

  • Unfortunately the link you supplied goes to such a generic location that it is all but useless because there's no solution there either. /slowclap.

  • I have the same problem with my brand new Surface 2 on the Hulu Plus app. I'd love a step by step for someone who has only very basic knowledge of computers, (where to find common things, basic file types, etc.)

  • HI- I'm having the same problems on my surface 2, omg so frustrating to watch a show, I don't get why Hulu plus is making this happen :( HELP

  • Same exact error here. Almost every time I try to watch HULU. So frustrating. MS gets a minidump every time my S2 crashes so I know they know about it but it's an issue with the NVidia driver so all they can do is complain to NVidia.

  • I'm guessing that it's Hulu's fault because I don't get the issue anywhere else has anyone found a solution anywhere else?

  • I've never had this error, until today. I just watched a full episode on Hulu Plus. Then I tried to watch the next episode and got the error. Rebooted, attempted to watch again, same error. Then one more cycle of that. I'm pretty disheartened reading all of these posts w/ no resolotuion...c'mon MS + Hulu.
