Windows XP 32-bit page fault (other OSes unaffected)


The cause of this is unknown, as I performed a proper shutdown at the last time before this has occurred. I have attempted to boot into Safe Mode and twice used the Last known good configuration option. At the BSoD, it gives 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x80631072, 0xB677C778) for a third technical message. Removing the RAM sticks do not help, either. Linux Lite Ubuntu and the live OSes which I have used suffer no such problem.

This issue might occur if a system thread generates an exception that the error handler does not catch. This exception can be caused by any of the following:

If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup or after Setup is complete, the computer might not have sufficient hard disk space to run Windows XP.

The computer BIOS might be incompatible with Windows XP, or it might have to be updated.

The video adapter drivers might be incompatible with Windows XP.

A device driver or a system service might be damaged.

If the issue is associated with the Win32k.sys file, it might be caused by a third-party remote control program.

The original KB-330182 article on the Microsoft Website is gone, but I found this copy on the Internet Archive
