Consider Blue Screen Administration for Windows NT and 2000
offers you the chance to administer your Windows NT
and Windows 2000 after a Blue Screen and fix boot errors or save data from

whose passwords have been forgotten.

If the BSOD is a kernel error, the KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR, this BSOD takes
place when the kernel requests a page of data from the swap file, but the page
cannot be read into memory. This error returns four parms. The first two parms
are useful in determining what the problem is:

parm 1 normally has values 0-2

  • 0: The page was retrieved from an in-memory page cache
  • 1: The page was retrieved from disk
  • 2: The page was retrieved from disk, but its size appears to be mismatched
And surprise, surprise, this is usually caused by a defective RAM

If parm 1 is greater than 2, parm 2’s value means:

  • 0xC000009A (STATUS_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES) : ran out of nonpaged pool
    (STATUS_DISK_OPERATION_FAILED): defective hard drive sectors
  • 0xC000009D (STATUS_DEVICE_NOT_CONNECTED): bad cable or improper termination
    of cable to HD
  • 0xC0000185 (STATUS_IO_DEVICE_ERROR): improper termination or I/O conflicts
Just open the box and reset the card and cabling. Most likely
something has vibrated loose. Try this even for 9C and 16A. If this is a new
box, these errors may indicate a defective motherboard.
