    I just installed Windows 7 on a new partition on my home desktop.

    I now get MEMORY_MANAGEMENT and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA BSODs right after logging in to Windows 7. When I get the BSODs, there is no filename associated with the error, just the above general errors.

    I can reproduce the PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA right away just by trying to change the default resolution from 800 x 600 to something higher. Otherwise, Windows 7 just blows one of these two BSODs after using the OS for a few minutes just by opening and closing Windows Explorer or by generally just poking around in control panel, etc.

    Could this be video driver related? Windows 7 downloaded its own video driver automatically, and I tried installing the NVIDIA Windows XP and NVIDIA Vista drivers and of course neither of those will install since it says these drivers aren't compatible with current system.

    System:

    P4 3.0 GhZ HT
    Nvidia 128MB FX 5500 video card
    3mb RAM

    What are my next steps to diagnose?

    Thanks for any help.
