Page fault error in Windows 8, restarting with blue screen

Dear Dell Community,


I'm experiencing a problem after installing Windows 8 on Dell Inspiron N7110.

When I leave my laptop on for a while, it restarts because of a blue screen with the error: 0x00000050; PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA

It only happens when the laptop isn't used but is still on. When I'm working on it this error doesn't occur.

I checked RAM and HDD with Dell Support Center PC Checkup (even RAM stress test) and it shows no errors. Besides the HDD is new, as my old one broke and Dell replaced it.

I updated all my drivers from Dell's Website, so they all supported by windows 8.

I also posted the minidump file as attachment.

I would appreciate any suggestions or solutions.

I have exactly the same problem and have taken the same steps and got the same results. 

Have you solved the problem?

It also appears on startup a lot of the time and gets stuck in a loop of starting up -> BSOD -> restart

I figured out that the problem disappears after Windows update.
