    Page Fault In Nonpaged Area BSOD

    Hello Friends,

    I've been having some BSODs both on startup and while running some programs. Most recently I got a Page Fault in Nonpaged Area while using Firefox. While running Diablo 3 last month I got a Memory Management BSOD. On boot last month I got an IRQL Not Less or Equal BSOD. Any help would be appreciated, DM log is attached.

    Please uninstall ASUS AI Suite 3, it is known for causing bluescreens.

    Invalid memory was referenced, this might be caused by the Windows File System.
    Please run below tests, if the hard drive tests comes clean then run the memory test.
    If the memory test comes clean, then run driver verifier to find any offending drivers.
    Invalid system memory was referenced.  This cannot be protected by try-except,
    it must be protected by a Probe.  Typically the address is just plain bad or it
    is pointing at freed memory.
    Arg1: ffff9c62ffff9c58, memory referenced.
    Arg2: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
    Arg3: fffff803af6c3d83, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
    Arg4: 0000000000000002, (reserved)

    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.

    Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

    Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

    Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

    Note   Note
    Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

    I just ran ten successful disk checks on both the HDD and the SSD. I also ran MemTest86+ with 11 consecutive passes without error.

    Please update your ROCCAT keyboard drivers
    Please update the drivers of your Logitech mouse
    Please update your Intel chipset drivers B85M-G | Motherboards | ASUS Global

    That should get rid of outdated drivers :)
