Guide to Fixing 0x00000050 Stop Error
What Is 0x00000050 Stop Error?
While running your Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2, your system suddenly stops responding out of complete randomness and you see an error message popping up which says something like this:
0x00000050 (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
The stop error 0x00000050 signifies that there’s a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA problem. If you’ve seen this error on different occasions then you will find the parameters in the message to be varying. That is because they are dependent on your PC’s configuration. Not all Stop errors “0x00000050” occur due to a single issue.
However, the most common problem which is encountered which results in the stop error popping up is due to a pool corruption occurring in the Srvnet.sys file.
This issue might be caused because of software incompatibility or a defective physical memory which resulted in requests for data for a hardware driver or service which was not found in the memory.
If you find the error occurring after you’ve installed a new application or a device driver then you should access Safe Mode and uninstall, disable or remove that application or driver.
