Start with an extended -- NOT just quick - hard drive test.  F12 at powerup.

This type of error is ( Page Frame Number ) often caused by a corrupted driver.  if this is something that has happened recently, have you installed any new devices to the system or updated any drivers?  If so you may wish to uninstall the new device or roll back the updated driver.

If you haven't installed any new devices and aren't aware of any driver updates the following link has a great document from Microsoft regarding troubleshooting bug checks

Here is Microsofts article on 0x4e PFN List Corrupt Errors.

Please let me know if this helps.

i don't know what is going on with your system but it seems buggered up pretty good....gxfui would seem like something with you graphics card. i kinda googled you error message and it comes up with lots of possibilities...thats why i suggested malware scan its simple...lol

maybe a fresh install of the OS is whats needed
