    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.


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

    What are my next steps to diagnose?

    Thanks for any help.
