INVALID PAGE FAULTS
Last updated May 2, 2006
Click here to refresh this page & its menu bar.


Invalid Page Faults are memory-behavior errors. They can be caused by too little RAM; damaged RAM; mismatched RAM; too little free hard drive space in the partition housing the swap file; poor memory management choices by the user; overheating; or (most commonly) programming errors. Usually, two programs are mentioned in the error message: Start troubleshooting with these, either by running repair utilities, replacing implicated modules, uninstalling the program(s) altogether for diagnostic purposes, or reinstalling one or both for diagnosis and/or repair. Nearly always, this problem will first appear soon after you have made software, hardware, or configuration changes to your computer, and can be traced to those changes. (NOTE: Virus infestation is one involuntary type of “software installation” that should be considered.)
