    The laptop is an acer aspire 1642wlmi. It has had windows xp home reinstalled and the hard drive is brand new to try and fix the problem but with no change.

    After windows starts and the desktop appears on the screen it crashes to a blue screen saying that it has dumped the physical memory and their is a problem with hardware.

    When looking at the device manager the texas instruments pcima (pci1510) card bus is sometimes present in the list with an exclamation mark next to it or sometimes not there at all. Also the same goes for the intel wireless adapter 2200bg. There is no internet connection through the network card either?

    Any ideas please.

    What else does the BSOD say?

    When the BSOD happens you will see a code number. You can put this into google and it might give you some starting points.

    Have you tried installing the drivers for the devices? Usually the yellow exclamation mark indicates that it has found hardware but no driver.

    You might want to install the appropriate software driver for your texas instrument pcmia card or disable this.

    From the above link..

    Last Known Good Configuration

    This is not accurate.. this is only worth trying if you are unable to log into windows at all. Because, once you have logged into Windows, the last know good information in the registry is overwitten.

    Yup 8)

    Has this problem just occurred? If so a driver update may have caused the issue, boot in safe mode and try a system restore.

    If that doesnt work try disabling the device in safe mode and then boot the laptop as normal.

    The BSOD states (PAGE_FAULT_IN _NON_PAGED_AREA)

    The technical info states:

    STOP: 0x00000050 (0xBA27AA00, 0x00000000,0x805F988c, 0x00000000)

    w29n51.sys - Address BA27AA00 base at BA27AA00, Datestamp 00000000

    Hope this helps.
