I have a 64-bit vista computer with RAID drives.
I keep getting bluescreen errors that say acedrv08.sys
"page fault in non paged area"
Sometimes it happens frequently. It usually happens when I run various software but it is unpredictable.
I called hp support about this and they did not find the problem. I tried uninstalling old software.
All the checks of my system turned up as "healthy."
Do you know what this is coming from and how I can get rid of the problem?

Just started having "page faults in non paged area" and found 5 trojans on my system. I am currently running a virus program and it has normally caught all of them, somehow the new stuff got through. My friend has been having the same problem. Began 1/11/09. I have eliminated all of the existing trojans from my system and the problem continues.
At the moment I am doing a full OS reinstallation using the HP recovery tools.
I'd advise a full scan of the system.

Hi, I have the same blue screen of death from acedrv08. It seems to happen when I leave my PC on for more than 24 hours. HP has been no help in resolving this problem, and my 1 year warranty ran out RECENTLY. The information I found on my PC is: Kernel Driver Running System Start \??\C:\Windows\system32\drivers\acedrv08.sys
Can I just remove it? Did you get your fixed? Won't it be a big help if HP would help there customer out rather than avoid the problem. There company install the OS on these PC. Why is this on a HPa6642p 64 bit home Premium 64 ED, its not on my Laptop 32 bit ED. Any expert help would be nice.
