Don't adjust your mind - it's reality that is malfunctioning

Radeon 9000 Driver under Windows 2003 produces STOP 50 (PAGEFAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA)

Affected products

  • Windows 2003
  • ATI Radeon/FireGL 9000


When the Radeon/FireGL 9000 drivers are installed under Windows 2003, the system produces a STOP 50 (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA) every time it is restarted.


To work around this problem, restart the system in safe mode and remove the video driver. Also, you can use the last good known configuration. After the removal of the driver, restart the system and then set the hardware acceleration of the video adapter to full. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the desktop and select Properties.
  2. Select the Settings tab.
  3. Click Advanced.
  4. Select the Troubleshoot tab.
  5. Move the Hardware acceleration slieder to maximum.
    The drivers can now be safely reinstalled.


The status of this problem is unknown, but it seems to be solved in the current driver release.
